I'm not gonna lecture you like everyone else about how stupid of a decision it was. What's done is done and as far as I'm concerned the only person that was "hurt" or damaged by this was you. All I can hope is that you learned your lesson. When you get back on the road and all the repercussions have passed and all the legal and suspension stuff is over, and 0you come to the same situation where you have to make a choice to get in your vehicle after consuming alcohol you continue to make the right choice and never drink and drive.

Good point. If he had done this before, he surely would have seen a judge already.

That was a dumbass decision, but your fine in my book if you take this and learn not to make stupid decisions like this. Your lucky you didn't kill anyone.

And you all need to chill out, No one has sympathy for people who drink and drive, but you don't have to rip him like he is a piece of ****, I'm sure he knows what he did was stupid.
I wanna see if you change your tune when you personally know someone that was killed by a drunk driver. Drunk driving and suicide are the two topics that I have no room for anything else but being serious.

(don't you just HATE IT when bad stuff happens to a good sentence? I had that last one all structured out in my mind, but as soon as I typed it, I'm thinking "I'm pretty sure this ain't gonna make any sense. lol)

I'm not on OP's side, nor am I justifying him either, but all you suckers should know all the facts before flapping your mouth and flaming him. I'm sure most of you have gotten behind the wheel with at least one beer in you before.
I have never taken a drink nor will I ever. Alcohol impairs a person's reactions/judgement/etc... I've never understood the point of getting shytfaced just because you want to.

^^^ This too.

Whether it was a whole keg or a sip, he stated that the beer was the main factor and he was arrested so it is safe to say he was Driving under the influence. He could have killed someone or maybe even worse injured someone in a way they would have to suffer for the rest of their lives. This makes his decision stupid. I hope he gets punished greatly and when he does get behind the wheel again he thinks about his decision. He could have posted the same story and said "Man I was a bonehead and I could have killed the guy I hit! This was a big wake up call it will never happen again." and I would have supported him. Instead he was whining about how much this is going to cost HIM, what the police did to HIM, what the court might do to HIM. Not cool in my book.

My advice to the OP, Grow up, think about what you did, and what you could have done. take it like a man, and when you come out on the other side make a change. Quit drinking if you have too, call a cab, a rickshaw or a sled dog team if you can't get a buddy to drive you.

^^^^ And this.
If I did something stupid and I realized how stupid it was, I sure as hell NOT posting all about it online.

my boss's brother got pulled over for drinking and driving and had to go to court also and all he got was his license taken away for 3 months.

i saw the vehicle coming towards me and i wasnt really going that fast, under the speed limit, but i hit the brakes and tried to swerve but damn.... hmmmmmm.................. i had the driver's side of the truck on yellow line but i guess i didnt swerve enough... shoulda stayed home!!!
No... you should have decided NOT TO DRINK AND DRIVE.

Okay, I think the OP gets the point. He's already hinted that he wants the thread closed so... Closed.
