DUIs are Dumb, Dumb, Dumb

by: Mike Miller

We all know someone who has driven under the influence. We all know someone who has gotten got for a DUI. We all know someone who has done something really stupid and were totally blitzed when it happened.

A woman in Louisville, Kentucky was arrested on a DUI charge after she rear-ended another vehicle, according to WLKY.com. So far it seems fairly normal.

Andrea Brown collided with another vehicle, seriously injuring the other driver. Both cars were totaled.

The 26-year-old Brown refused to be taken to the hospital, but police noticed she smelled heavily of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and was slurring her speech.

Of course Brown failed field sobriety tests. How drunk was she? Brown's breath test showed a blood alcohol level of 0.258.

Brown told officers that she got off work as a bartender at Stooges between 4 and 5 p.m. and that she consumed at least four or five Redbulls mixed with vodka. She had no recollection of the wreck she caused and had no idea where she was.

It is disappointing officers did not force her to the ER as she likely had a concussion and alcohol poisoning. Hopefully she will take an alcohol class and seek help for what iis obviously a case of serious alcoholism.

Cable Guy Stupidity

A California Sheriff’s Department got a little more than it bargained for when they requested someone come to troubleshoot their Internet problems.

Randall Ramey, a Time Warner employee, showed up to the sheriff's office to fix some issues when officers noticed Ramey had alcohol on his breath. According to WTVQ.com, when asked about it, the Time Warner employee told police he'd had approximately eight beers the night before.

Ramey was arrested on DUI charges. Talk about walking right into the mousetrap. Hopefully the 49-year-old Ramey will take an alcohol class and work toward preventing his DUI behavior in the future.
