This video cracked me up and made me feel much better about driving under the influence of marijuana. Yes, I do drive while high. And for many people who don’t actively use marijuana, the idea of driving under its influence seems ridiculous. But, like most things, if you’ve built up a tolerance (like “Addy” in the above video), even being 5x over the legal limit doesn’t impair you enough to be a danger on the road. She had to smoke more than a gram to be told that she wasn’t in good enough condition to be driving, and even then, she agreed. I don’t know about you, but when I am drunk and want to go somewhere, I think I am capable of driving there safely. Yet, when I smoke, if I know I’m to high, I’m content with waiting until I’m no longer feeling incapable.
My favorite part about this video is how they tried to show in the end that all these individuals would have been arrested, according to the officer. Ironically, most of the drivers wouldn’t have even been pulled over, because their driving was still “pretty good”.
Thank you CNN for proving what I already knew. Stoners are more patient and rational than drunks (but if you’re a combination of the two, I have no speculation for how you might act or when you might or might not drive).
This drunk, Robert, was very unhappy about being picked up for being intoxicated and when his hippy ramblings couldn’t get him out of the situation, he decided to attempt a song to persuade the officer. While it didn’t help him out of his situation, it definitely has provided some much-needed entertainment. Thanks to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for not only arresting this fine gentleman, but also allowing him to finish the entire song.

On Saturday afternoon, Donna Chen, 53, was out walking her dog when she was suddenly struck and killed by a drunk driver. Blake C. Talman, 22, was actually fleeing another scene where he was suspected of crashing prior to this incident in which he took a woman’s life.
Talman reportedly lost control of his Nissan Altima on State Road 758 north of Glebe Lane when troopers say he struck Donna L. Chen as she was walking her dog on a sidewalk.
According to authorities, the dog was also hit, and it ran away from the scene.
Talman didn’t stop after hitting the woman and her dog and continued on through some landscaping, a street sign, and several wooden poles at the entrance of St. Michael’s Archangel Catholic Church. Then when you would think the young drunk driver might give up, he strikes another car with an 18-year-old girl who sustains minor injuries as well.
Both Talman and his passenger, a 24-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and were transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Sunday morning, the hospital reported that Talman and the passenger had been discharged.
Talman is currently booked into the Sarasota County Jail.
What’s worse is that this young idiot that caused so much destruction is an expectant father. He seemed very upset when he heard that his bail would be set at $100,000 because that would pose a problem with him trying to be involved in the process of having a new child. This man has nothing to be angry about because he killed someone, injured others and caused extreme amounts of damage to various properties. Maybe you shouldn’t be getting so wasted and driving a vehicle when you’re expecting a baby, not to say you should do so otherwise, but setting a good example and being a safe and responsible father might be a good thing to try and carry out. Luckily, you’ll have time to be sober and think about the dumb shit you’ve done to get yourself in this situation.
Meanwhile, the dog that Chen was walking was terrified by the incident and had no idea where to go for help. With his owner now dead and no one tending to her, the dog ran off and jumped into the Gulf of Mexico. After swimming about a half mile with injuries from the accident, a man who was fishing in his kayak and had a camera filming everything, managed to safely rescue the poor shocked dog. Poor thing was lost, confused, and hurt badly. Luckily, he is now okay.
UPDATE: the mystery is solved. However, it’s very sad and unfortunate:
The accident scene was about a mile from where I found Barney swimming. Our guess is that he was so freaked out and traumatized that he just wanted to get as far away from there as possible. And when he ran out of land, he took to the water. I feel lucky that I was there fishing, because there was no place for him to go and I don’t know if he could have made it much farther. He’s banged up, but fine. Our hearts go out to the family who lost their mother.
* Yes, Barney is back with his family. I imagine they need him pretty bad right now.
* I usually keep a camera running when I fish, in case I catch the big one. It does happen, occasionally (see other videos in my profile if you are interested)
* The kayak is a Hobie Adventure. It is a kayak made specifically for fishing. When turned down, the side floats allow me to stand up and fish.
* My brother got my mom some shamwows a couple years back as a gag gift. As corny as they are, they actually are pretty nice for fishing

I have to admit that I am pretty damn envious of this little bitch. First of all, she put up one hell of a fight during her arrest and then to top it off, she looked happy as hell in her mug shot. When I was arrested for my DUI (blessing is disguise), I pulled the typical ‘cry and beg’ act and acted like quite the pussy. I was also far less drunk than the woman in the above mug shot and felt that if I refused to be happy in my photo, I had somehow showed them. Wrong. Very wrong.
Michelle Watson, 24, had a rather intriguing Thursday night and I’m here to share with you her story. After getting ridiculously hammered, Watson decided it would be a good idea to hop into her Honda Civic and drive herself home.
According to cops in Prescott, Arizona, this young, drunk, woman had a large list of problems that led to her arrest; She allegedly:
* Hit “numerous curbs” and drove on the sidewalk
* Said, “I don’t have to walk fucking anywhere” when approached by a cop
* Shoved an officer after declining to take field sobriety tests
* Had to be taken to the ground while scuffling with a cop
* Kneed a second officer in the crotch while being handcuffed
* Repeatedly cursed at police
* Kicked the inside of a squad car
While taking her booking photo at the Yavapai County Jail, she was ballsy enough to give them one last ‘Fuck You’ and smiled like her life depended on it. She also threw up the double thumbs which made it seem as though she was thrilled with her accomplishments for that evening. And shockingly her blood alcohol level was THREE times the legal limit. Something tells me she’s familiar with getting plastered and driving a vehicle.
As detailed in a Prescott Police Department report, Watson was charged with aggravated assault on a cop, resisting arrest, and “DUI-super extreme.”

Man Gets DUI IN Drive-Thru After Handing Over Taco As Proof Of Identification And Before Catching His Truck On Fire
Seriously? That may possibly be the longest title ever, but I sincerely believe that all of that needed to be included to show you how absolutely ridiculous this story is. I’m extremely tire and would like to go to bed, but feel I should probably discuss the man who may have had the most amazing arrest and DUI of all time.
Matthew Falkner, 30, should have had enough common sense to know that when you hand over a taco and the police are expecting you ID, they’re going to be fully aware of how fucking drunk you are. I don’t even know how the hell you made sense of that, even while wasted… and I have been extremely fucking hammered.
Unfortunately Falkner happened to pass out in a public place, the Jensen Beach Taco Bell and then while he was blacked out, in his car, sitting in a drive thru, completely wasted…his car caught on fire. Seriously.
The greatest part is it was this dumb asses FOURTH meal after downing some beers. The manager had to call the police shortly after giving Falkner his taco because he was holding up customers behind him while snoozing, taco in hand.
A deputy awoke Falkner and then asked for his ID. Falkner said no before reaching into his bag and presenting the officer with a taco. Another deputy clarified they were asking for an ID, not a taco. Falkner chuckled and began eating the taco.
Then deputies noticed Falkner had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator while his truck was in park. The engine had caught fire, and fire extinguishers were used to put it out.
Falkner’s blood alcohol content was between .227 and .225, according to a breath test. That’s three times the legal limit. He was hauled off to jail on DUI charges.
Thank goodness he at least got to enjoy his taco before going to jail and eating those nasty ass bologna with dry ass bread and cheap cheese. I spent one night in jail and was so hungry. Luckily Mr. Falkner had 4 meals before his little vacay with awful catering.

Ann Marie Abdullin, 23, of Salibury, Maryland was arrested TWICE this morning for drinking and driving. The first incident occurred at 1:30am, when she was released to a sober driver who thought it would be a good idea to drop her off at her car.
Three hours after being dropped off at her vehicle and her first DUI, she was pulled over a second time and arrested for a SECOND DUI. This time, her four-year-old daughter was in the car and it was 4:30am. Whether she had continued drinking between the two arrests or was just that intoxicated, is unknown.
Because of the close proximity of the arrests, she had more charges her second time around, which included driving while impaired, driving under the influence, operating a motor vehicle within 12 hours of being arrested for DUI, negligent driving, and “other minor traffic charges.”
Of course something like this would happen in the Bay Area, where I was born and raised. What a vindictive bitch this woman is. I mean, she has three children with the man and plots to have him get in trouble legally?! Now the kids know their father got a DUI and instead of spending money on them, he’s paying for legal bills. Here’s some of the story:
MARTINEZ — She was a striking blonde who spent a lot of time in Hawaii, just like he did. She was an avid Sharks fan, just like him. She said all the right things and made it clear that she wanted him.
“I haven’t had sex in so long,” she cooed on their first date.
Deep down, Dave Dutcher — unassuming aeronautics engineer, father of three, recently split from his wife — suspected that his Match.com sweetheart was too good to be true. And when a wildly flirtatious second date ended in a DUI, Dutcher wondered whether his ex-wife was somehow connected to the woman who had fed him shots and invited him hot-tubbing with an equally coquettish friend.
Then, two years later, a major police corruption scandal centered on a Concord private investigator exploded, and a prosecutor confirmed Dutcher’s suspicions: He had been set up.
Now, on Monday, in a Contra Costa County courtroom, Dutcher will get his first chance at redemption: A judge will consider whether the stain from that night — one of the five cases known as Contra Costa County’s “dirty DUIs” — unfairly tinged his divorce settlement. And prosecutors have also taken the extraordinary position that they will not stand in the way if Dutcher wants to withdraw his no contest plea — two years later — and ask a judge to wipe the crime from his record.
On that night, when his date and her friend flashed their breasts at Dutcher, he said he was as confused as the other men at the bar who wondered whether he was some kind of movie producer.
So when the women left in their two-seat convertible and asked Dutcher to follow, he climbed in his Ford four-wheel-drive pickup. He said he watched them run a red light, just before he noticed a police officer was pulling him over. He was arrested for drunken driving with a 0.12 blood alcohol content. Little did the Concord police officer know that Dutcher was being led into a trap.
But, according to court records, the officer who arrested Dutcher had been tipped off by his acquaintance Christopher Butler, the one-time Antioch police officer and private investigator now at the center of a federal grand jury investigation that is also probing the former Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team commander Norman Wielsch and three recently resigned cops from Danville, San Ramon and the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office.
Gordon Flavia, 56, was taken to the hospital shortly after crashing his Jeep into a carport at a Longview riverfront condominium yesterday, August 2nd, 2011. But before going to the hospital, he had quite an adventure.
After accidentally reversing into a carport at the condominiums, and knocking down one of the main beams, he decided he must hide. The carport was totaled, and there was sufficient damage to the building he crashed into, landing in their bathroom. The obvious solution? Cover yourself in human urine and hide in a portable toilet. This is precisely how police found Flavia, soaking wet and in a toilet.
Apparently they have to wait for toxicology reports to see if they can charge him with a DUI. I would have assumed that covering yourself in urine and trying to evade capture would be proof enough, or at the very least, a breathalyzer.
Cory Smit is just 29 years old and has been brought in for the fifth time for a DUI. The first arrest took place in 2004, followed by two arrests in 2005, another in 2008 and his most recent, this month in 2011.
The officers who arrested Smit said he had a blood alcohol level of .29 (more than double the legal limit) and became belligerent as they were trying to drive him to the station. Pepper spray was then used on the suspect after he repeatedly beat his head in the back of the patrol car.
You would think someone that has been through this as many times as he has, would know when to just sit back and relax. Also, he seems very fragile and could really hurt himself. ha.
A judge in Wisconsin has taken away his license for 40 months, will require him to take random urine tests and expects complete sobriety after 10 months in a prison work release program. I have a feeling the fifth times a charm
