Democrat Councilman Arrested For DUI (Video)

Dem Councilman Arrested For DUI – Washington Free Beacon

Lorain City Councilman Dennis Flores was arrested for driving while drunk Wednesday night after police found him trying to free his van from a snowbank and appeared drunk.

Councilman Flores was put into custody after failing a field sobriety test.

The arresting officers filmed the entire ordeal and The Chronicle-Telegram was able to obtain copies of the tapes and has the rest of the story:

Kovach wrote in his report that Flores had difficulty following a pen with his eyes and had difficulty with a walk-and-turn test. When Kovach asked Flores to stand on one leg and count, something he had to explain several times, Flores nearly fell to the ground, and the officer had to reach out and grab him, the video shows.

Kovach then puts Flores in the back of his patrol car and takes him to Lorain City Jail, where he handcuffs Flores before taking him inside.

A second video shows Flores and two other officers standing inside the jail, and Flores appears to burp. One of the officers comments that it smelled of vodka, but Flores corrects him, telling police that he had been drinking Christmas ale.

Flores refused to take a breath test to determine how much he had to drink and was booked into the jail.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges against him during an appearance Thursday in Lorain Municipal Court.

Veteran ABC News Reporter Sam Donaldson Arrested For DUI

Veteran ABC News Reporter Sam Donaldson Arrested For DUI – Daily Caller

Veteran ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson, 78, was arrested for driving under the influence in Lewes, Del. on Dec. 1, local WGMD radio reports.

The former ABC White House correspondent was pulled over for a traffic violation when Lewes police suspected he had been drinking. Donaldson failed the field sobriety test and was arrested for a DUI, and will appear in court early next year.

Donaldson has been with ABC News since 1967 for the network’s Washington bureau. He later became the White House correspondent, and then anchored ABC Sunday Evening News for a decade.

He co-anchored “This Week” with Cokie Roberts from 1996 to 2002, and now serves as a frequent panelist.

Donaldson has a reputation for his feisty reporting style and his famous confrontation with President George W. Bush in 2006. After actor Mel Gibson went on his first reported anti-semitic tirade (during a DUI arrest, no less), Donaldson asked the president if he thought Gibson should be forgiven.

Bush looked to see who answered the question and said, “You’re a has-been. We don’t have to answer has-been’s questions,” the Washington Post reported at the time.

Donaldson shot back, “Better to have been a has-been than a never was.”

Woman Recently Busted For DUI Causes Accident While Shaving Her Pubes From Behind The Wheel

FHP: Driver Lacked Razor-Sharp Focus – Florida Keys News

As authorities nationwide warn motorists of the dangers of driving while texting, Florida Keys law enforcement officers add a new caution: Don’t try to shave your privates, either.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a two-vehicle crash Tuesday at Mile Marker 21 on Cudjoe Key was caused by a 37-year-old woman driver who was shaving her bikini area while her ex-husband took the wheel from the passenger seat.

……..

“She said she was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit,” Trooper Gary Dunick said. “If I wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have believed it. About 10 years ago I stopped a guy in the exact same spot… who had three or four syringes sticking out of his arm. It was just surreal and I thought, ‘Nothing will ever beat this.’ Well, this takes it.”

If that weren’t enough, Megan Mariah Barnes was not supposed to be driving and her 1995 Ford Thunderbird was not supposed to be on the road.

The day before the wreck, Barnes was convicted in an Upper Keys court of DUI with a prior and driving with a suspended license, said Monroe County Assistant State Attorney Colleen Dunne. Barnes was ordered to impound her car, and her driver’s license was revoked for five years, after which time she must have a Breathalyzer ignition interlock device on any vehicle she drives, Dunne said. Barnes also was sentenced to nine months’ probation.

Barnes and Charles Judy were southbound in her Thunderbird at 11 a.m. when they slammed into the back of a 2006 Chevrolet pickup driven by David Schoff of Palm Bay. His passengers were a man and two women; the latter were treated for minor injuries at Lower Keys Medical Center, FHP spokesman Alex Annunziato said.

Schoff had slowed to about 5 mph to make a turn when the Thunderbird hit him, traveling about 45 mph, which was within the speed limit, Dunick said.

Barnes allegedly drove another half-mile, then switched seats with Judy, who allegedly claimed to be driving, Annunziato said.

“She jumps in the back seat and he moves over,” Dunick said. “It was like the old comedy bit, ‘Who’s on first?’ “

Burns on Judy’s chest from the passenger-side airbag deploying belied their story, Dunick said. The airbag in the steering wheel did not deploy, he said.

Troopers charged Barnes with driving with a revoked license, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a wreck with injuries and driving with no insurance. Judy was not charged.

Barnes faces a maximum of a year in jail if found guilty of violating her probation due to the wreck, Dunne said.

“My phone has been ringing off the hook all day, and I know there’s a funny side to this, but it’s also deadly serious. This is a scary road and a lot of bad wrecks are caused by dumb stuff like this,” Dunick said. “It is unbelievable. I’m really starting to believe this stuff only happens in the Keys.”

Police: Local Priest Offered Sex To Officers After Arrest

Police: Local Priest Offered Sex To Officers After Arrest – WJW

A local priest may need more than the Lord’s forgiveness after what police officers say he did Sunday night.

“I sum it up as unusual at best,” said Brimfield Township Police Chief David Blough.

It started just after 11:45 p.m. Sunday when officers received a report of a car off the side of the road at the intersection of Meloy and Sandylake roads.

Father Ignatius Kury was laying down in the back seat of the vehicle.

“He was extremely intoxicated,” said Chief Blough.

Kury tested three times the legal limit and was taken to the police station for processing. Officers say that’s when things really got interesting.

Police rolled a video tape of the incident to protect themselves and use it as evidence in court.

“Because of the fact that one of my officers walked by the holding cell and he was exposing himself,” said Chief Blough.

Kury is heard on the tape saying, “I’ll give you a sermon on the mount.”

According to Chief Blough, the priest’s rant lasted over 20 minutes during which he threatened and propositioned officers.

Kury is heard saying, “I’ll pay you whatever you want. What do you want? Want me to give you a [expletive]? Is that what you want ?” “Do you want me to be a sexual slave?”

Eventually, Kury was released on bond.

He could’ve faced additional charges for his actions inside the holding cell, but Chief Blough says the OVI charge and videotape are punishment enough.

Kury will have his first court hearing March 4, 2011.

No one could be reached for comment at Father Kury’s parish, Holy Ghost Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic Church, on Brown Street in Akron.
