    THIRD offense; he'll get a slap on the wrist , again, and maybe NEXT time, he'll kill someone! The judicial system at it's best!

    A man of that age KNOWS it's illegal to drive intoxicated, KNOWS it's illegal to drive with unrestrained children in the car. What is wrong with folks? Who did these children belong to?

    He probably thought you couldn't be charged with DWI if you're under the influence of prescription pills. Thing is, you can. I hope the children weren't hurt.
