Would you agree that those who drink and drive are menaces to society? How about those who get busted for multiple driving under the influence (DUI) violations?
I would certainly label Albert McCowan a menace to society. The 51-year-old Californian just got popped for his seventh DUI. As reported in www.wate.com.
Officers noticed McCown when he started driving on the wrong side of the road (menace to oncoming traffic for sure). When pulled over, McCowan tried to climb into the backseat from the driver's seat. There were two other passengers were in the car.
When he got out of the car, the drunken driver could barely stand up. McCowan was glassy-eyed and reeked of alcohol.
What about the passengers? Were they as bad off as this menace? Not at all, one of the passengers proceeded to drive the car home!
Would it surprise you to learn that his license was already revoked at the time of the incident?
A review of his criminal history revealed he has been charged with DUI six other times since 1992 and has been charged with driving on a revoked license seven times prior.
I am not certain a California DUI class alone will suffice to keep this menace away from endangering society. I do think he needs intensive counseling and should never get behind the wheel again.
