This story has so much Fail in it that it seems a shame to put it only in one post.
But I’ll try.
Tisha Conklin, 37, of West Bloomfield, Michigan was driving home from what we hope was a Halloween party in her 1998 Jeep Cherokee early Sunday morning when an officer pulled her over. The cops had her take a breath test and found out that her BAC was .17% (more than twice the legal limit) which qualifiers her as a Super Drunk Driver, according to a new Michigan law. If that was the story, you know it wouldn’t be here on BadJocks.
No, the story gets better. Conklin was apparently rather scantily clad in what appears to be a Slutty Referee costume. Once they got her to the jail, officers asked her to change into something a little less revealing and she agreed. (At left, what the costume looks like on a model.)
After exiting the ladies room though, she decided she would rather fight than switch and allegedly punched a female cop before finally posing for the classic drunk “What?” mug shot at right. If convicted of the DUI charge, Conklin will face up to 180 days in jail and a fine of $200 to $700 and 360 hours of community service, while the bonus felony assault charge could net her up to two years in prison.
Unfortunately, her BAC is well short of what it takes to make the Top Twenty of the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings, now at about 0.23%.

It doesn’t happen very often but you CAN be arrested for DUI if you’re not driving a car. Sometimes it happens on lawn mowers, occasionally on bikes and very infrequently on horseback. We’ve also seen an increase in DUI charges against those driving golf carts, although they are usually just inebriated seniors in retirement communities who use them to get around instead of walking. Here though, we have a man who was actually AT a golf course when he left to drive home in his cart. No word on his blood alcohol concentration, but doubtful he would make our Top Twenty list at the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings (not to be confused with the frequently disputed BCS Rankings). Still, he did manage to get all the way home before being caught my New York State Troopers.
New York State Police today said Todd P. Ranke, 43, of Locke was charged with felony driving while intoxicated Saturday afternoon. Troopers, who were initially called to investigate the theft of a golf cart, determined that Ranke drove the cart from a golf course of Tollgate Hill Road to his residence on Buddy Drive in Locke.
Since Ranke’s family owns the golf cart, Ranke is not facing larceny charges, troopers said. However, in addition to felony DWI, Ranke was charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and aggravated DWI.

It has not been the career for the Cardinal that senior JJ Hones had hoped for: she’s already missed most of two seasons of the past four because of surgeries to her left knee. At the end of this season she had yet another surgery, but hoped to come back for a fifth “super senior” year after her recovery from that operation. And, while we can understand her frustration, it still doesn’t explain getting arrested for DUI at 4 a.m. on a golf cart. It also sounds like she allegedly tried to outrun the cops. Again, on a GOLF CART. Then again, that might have been a fun chase if the Stanford cops had been on Segways. Now THAT’S video game I’d like to play.
Guard JJ Hones, who was dismissed from the Stanford women’s team Monday, was arrested May 2 for allegedly driving under the influence, reckless driving, evading a police officer and resisting arrest on campus, according to Fanhouse.com.
Stanford police told the Web site that Hones was driving a golf cart on campus in a reckless manner in the early hours and failed to obey the commands of pursuing officers. She was eventually stopped and failed a field sobriety test.

College jocks arrested for drunk driving? A dime a dozen.
College jocks arrested for drunk driving a boat? Now that takes a special kind of stupid.
Oregon State quarterback Peter Lalich spent several hours in a Shasta County jail over the weekend after being arrested on suspicion of boating DUI, becoming the seventh OSU player or former player to run afoul of the law since last month. Lalich, 21, was with a group of students at Lake Shasta on Friday when officers cited him.
He is to be arraigned on June 21 at the Shasta County Courthouse. Boating DUI is a serious offense in the state of California that carries penalties in some cases as steep as drunk driving in a car. Fines can range from $500 to $7,500 and jail time can be as long as two years in extreme cases.
