    Wow. 2 years ago, on new years day, a drunk hit about 11 cars on my street. (Seriously). Happened around 1 in the morning.

    There were cars in the middle of the street, cars on top of cars, and another almost flipped over as it was pushed hard against a light pole. The guy drove about 9 miles without a right from wheel leaving his mark on the street. That’s how he eventually got caught.

    Drunk @ 10pm ? He must have gone to the bar early, & left early to beat the traffic.

    The Duh factor seems pretty high here. Too bad the suspect did not fall off the curb while he was being held.
