I read throuh the local paper everyday online to see whats happening. After checking a couple more sites, he wasn't charged with the hit and run, and on top of that, his bail was a friggin' joke, $500 for DUI, open container, failing to yeild to an emergency vehicle and no liscense, which means his insurance was void as well.
I had a simple DUI, no other charges, and the trooper even testified that I blew high, a .11, then on my second time once we got to the courthouse I blew a .02,, which the legal limit is .10, back then. I just blew high because I had just downed a couple, not because I was actually drunk. I had drank 2 beers quick when I had got home and just opened the third and saw I didn't have any smokes, so I ran to the store before I drank anymore and got drunk. My bail alone was 2 grand! Fines around $5000 and another couple of grand on a lawyer, which didn't help anything, and at least another grand on classes and court referal.
Another thing I noticed, it's suppossed to be law you spend no less than 12 hours, or until you can blow all zeros on the breath-a-nator, before you can be released. I had to spend the night in the drunk tank as the only sober bastard in there. They arrested him yesterday, and bonded him out within' a couple of hours.
Guess it pays to be a senator.
