One thing you can say for top draft pick Justin Blackmon: he’s consistent. And if there’s one thing the NFL loves almost as much as money, it’s consistency. Take Blackmon’s drinking and driving for instance: In October 2010 he was arrested by Carrollton, Texas at 3:45 am going 90 in a 60 MPH zone on Interstate 35. At the time officers gave him a field sobriety test (no BAC that…


Drunk German Golfer Arrested for Playing Through on City Streets

Apparently, South Burlington High School soccer coach Thomas W. Schaefer didn’t drink very often. But when he did–at an average about once every 6 years–he really threw them back and then drove. Schaefer is, or was, the long time boys and girls soccer coach at SBHS until last week when he was arrested for the fourth time for DUI.
