As a Colorado Springs Criminal and DUI attorney, I see some humorous things come across my desk. Tragic, but humorous, nonetheless. These next three stories, while not about my clients, are examples. Thankfully, none of these people hurt themselves or anyone else.
First--A friend of mine (shout out to David M!) sent me this anecdote via a group e-mail last month. I hope this is a made-up situation, but I do recall a friend of mine (now a US Attorney!) telling me what a jerk I was for driving home after a night at the bar, when in fact it was he who drove--he was just too drunk to remember.
I would like to share an experience with you all, to do with drinking and driving. As you know some people have brushes with the authorities on their way home. Well I for one have done something about it.
The other night I was out for a dinner and a few drinks, and having had far too much vino, and knowing full well I was over the limit, I did something I have never done before. I took a bus home.
I arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise,
as I have never driven a bus before.
Next, from Pennsylvania (he says as he chuckles because his in-laws are from PA): This man from Avondale had far too much fun at the lake. Note to self, the trailer wheels should be on the pavement, NOT up in the air. Or, as this headline from GoFISHn puts it: "If you're drunk, don't tow your boat flipped over." Probably not a good idea if you are sober, either.
Finally, from NBC Miami, we learn that a taco is not an appropriate form of identification. Although this seems funny because it's unusual, it's really not (funny nor unusual). I've represented people who have passed out at Burger King, McD's, Taco Bell and Sonic to name a few.
Anyway, if you've found yourself in any of these, ahem, interesting situations, or maybe a routine Colorado Springs drinking and driving case, hope isn't lost. Give me a call to discuss making the best of a bad situation.
