    I really want to take a look at this statute now. Just for laughs.

      I don't know about that. A better effort would be to plan ahead and get a taxi, chaffeur, or whatever. That's the main cause of DUIs in my opinion. Lack of planning. I'm all for partying hard, but I'm responsible enough to realize that I need to plan my drives before I go out.

        It would be good for a laugh I'm sure. Unfortunately, it's tough to find laws, statutes, etc. on the net, at least in my experience. I was recently trying to find out what the punishment if for assault (if the perpetrator is a minor) and I still haven't found it.

          Yeah, that would be ideal. You're right. But for the guy to be arrested for this when he obviously was making a conscious effort to keep from driving drunk.....
          I dunno. I mean, we don't know the whole story. For all we know, McNair could have known full well that his friend was drunk. He could have been sitting in the car talking about how you're not a real man unless you can drive with 12 drinks in you. I mean, I'm not necessarily on his side, because I wasn't there. But I'm just pointing out how ill-conceived that law is.

            Right, I agree with you. Laws like that are more often than not more trouble than they're worth. From a philosophical standpoint, it doesn't make sense.

              Which brings up another point. They've pretty much got a law for every little thing today. But how many citizens know about more than an obvious handful of them? Shouldn't that be a given? Shouldn't all laws be common knowledge, and easily understood by the people which they govern? Seems each state/province would at least have an up to date database on the internet somewhere. Hell, for all I know I might be breaking the law by sitting here in my boxers with the window open.

                I agree completely. It is completely impossible for the average person to even begin to understand the basics of laws.

                  Ive never thought of McNair as a dumb guy. This maybe just a 1-time thing

                    Well if he was drunk than he probably didn't realize his brother who was driving was drunk too. I won't get mad at him for being drunk but if his brother was supposed to be the designated driver then you got issues there.

                      Kinda off topic, but it's time like these when I like the Jaguars being obscure from the national media. We've had nearly as many arrests as the Bengals, yet no body gives a wink at it.

                        What I want to know is why does he drive a 2003 Dodge pickup when he's got millions of dollars?

                          Not everybody feels the need to be flashy. Plus, he's a country boy at heart. At least that's the impression I get.

                            It's his DUI car. Something inexpensive that he can write-off. Plus, it'll hold up well in an accident. ;)

                              Troy Polamalu drives a 2004 Kia Spectra.

                              not everyone gets pulled into the "We need a $15 Million dollar home and $4,000,000 car."

                              Troy Bought a house in Ligonier, PA for like $320k..

                              He's my favorite player because he's a star and he's not a complete ass, I met him at camp and he's an awesome guy.

                                I like how some people here think a DUI isn't a big deal.

                                Drunk drivers = scum bags.
