I believe he's had a total of three DUI's while he was working with Ch.8/11 and 13. After getting fired three times (twice with Ch. 8/11) he had no choice but to try to change himself and take up another career if he wanted to stay in WV. I hated to see it happen to him, he was an awesome anchorman!

Anybody ever stop to ask why MADD (mothers against drunk drivers) never complained or petioned to get his drunk ass off the air? They just went right on watching his drunken ass give the news, because they though he was such a handsome gentlemen.

Tom was the best anchorman in this town of Charlston. Yep, he had DUI's, but remedied that problem, pulled himself up by his own boot straps, something a lot of people cannot do. Yes, he is now an Attorney and a darn good one. I only wish him the best in his new profession. He even makes Mark Hunt look better.

Anybody ever stop to wonder why when Tom was being pulled over by the cops in Kanawha City for driving the wrong way towards the Kanawha city bridge (which would have killed a person for sure) he immediately went down a back alley to avoid the cops?

Could it be that he wanted to throw something out of the window before being arrested for like the 100th time

I'm not saying it was drugs, because i wasn't there, but if it stands to reason if it quacks like a duck....

@onewhoknows

Tom was not a good anchorman he was a drunk ass who knew how to woo the old women. He may be a lawyer now, but my friend lawyers are like drunk ass punks

Alcohol Abuse is prevelant in every profession. HE just happened to have a career that required he battle his disease publically. What is sad is the obvious lack of proactive action or post-response by WCHS Management to Enforce behavioral policies in place for WCHS "personalities. That is for one just Inexcusable. By NOT holding him accountable, he disease was allowed to progress and manifest....ALTHOUGH I understand THE ULTIMATE RESPONSIBILITY TO CHANGE FALLS ON HIM! The General public WERE FORTUNATE THAT SOMEONE DID NOT LOSE LIFE OR LIMB TO THIS MAN....

,,,,in tired of all the idiots that call alcohol and drug abuse diseases it's a matter of choice not a disease!!! Cancer, aids, diabetics are diseases. Wchs was not responsible for his problems, he should have been locked up after that many DUI 's Not only him but anyone caught drinking and driving! No wonder our society is goin o hell. People don't want to accept he facts rights right and wrong is wrong is wrong, put the blame where the blame need to be put! In each person that makes the wrong choice

when you kill people texting or talking on a cell phone while driving is that a disease or a choice? More children are being killed now from cell/text accidents than from drunk driving. Where is the outrage??

,,,, that's a choice, not a disease, you didn't know that? Addiction is not a disease be it drinking, shooting up drugs, or smoking even texting while driving. It's a poor choice that each of us chose to or chose not to make.

Tom was an Infantry Officer in Vietnam. I think he has earned the right to drink. Maybe y'all just need to mind your own dirty laundry.

I heard he threatened to sue the local band The Tom McGee's if they didn't change their name. So now they are just The McGee's.

You dont realize what a narrow minded uneducated fool you really sound like, do you? Yes Drinking and drving is a choice and a VERY poor one at that, nor is it excuseable. However it IS explainable because addiction itself is NOT a choice. There are proven clinical changes and differences in the brains of addicts, and the predisposition for addictive behavior is genetic. The child of an alcoholic parent is at risk to become an alcoholic themselves, despite their environment or economic status.. Youve obviously never struggled with addiction. Consider yourself lucky. It is an affliction that affects and imapairs one's ability to make good choices. Dont sit and speak in absolutes and look down your nose as if you know what it is youre truly passing judgement on, because you dont!

@Godyoureanidiot

You'll find just as many if not MORE people who feel alcholism is a lifestyle choice vs a disease and i am one of them. This stufy and that study doesn't mean squat. People can stop drinking if they want, but the overwhelming majority who drink in excess don't want to stop. It is NOT a disease, nor is any kind of an addiction a disease.

It is a lifestyle choice. Plain and simple.

BTW: I drink at least a 12 pack of beer a day along with about 4 or five shots of rum. The bar i go to is close to my home so i don't have to drive.

But there are people in the same bar who drink as much or more than i do and they drive home nightly.
