If his blood level was at the lowest limit for being drunk then he had too much alcohol to be driving. He couldn't have been convicted of a dui if he were slightly lower than the limit. He must have been at the legal drunk level or above but not below.

There are too many people like you out there who think they aren't drunk or buzzed but are still impaired even if just slightly. I really don't know why anyone has even one drink and drives.
Sure, they may be "good" people, but that doesn't have anything to do with them drinking and thinking they aren't drunk. My sister swore up and down she wasn't drunk either but somehow she managed to rack up 3 dui's. She kept driving too -she thought she was a "good" person and that she was the exception to every rule because of that. How dare anyone question her in her mind. I'm so thankful she never killed anyone. She no longer drinks because she realized FINALLY that her judgement sucked.

I personally barred him from 2 different bars that I have worked at.
I have barred his wife.
He has been in jail for a short time, for what, I dont know....I do know that he thinks that his shit dont stink. He will start a fight just for looking at him.
He needs to be in jail for a long period of time and not ever have a chance to get his license back. BUT to be quite honest...unless he gets at least 5 years, when he does get out...he still wont care. He needs a great awakening.
I went to Nursing school with his wife,and was just curious why you barred her?

Riddle me this...my drivers license will expire on the 28th of this month. Yesterday I take off from work early to go renew my drivers license that I have never received a ticket on upon my moving here and getting my Tn. license in '99. Upon my arrival I am told that I can't renew my license with a birth certificate which for some reason they do not have on file, yet they issued me one initially when I transfered my from Ar. to Tn. Meanwhile this arse hole runs around with 6 DUI and a drivers license and I can't get anything accomplished legally. So no birth certificate, no license. My mother past away 4 years ago and I have no idea where my birth certificate is. So I go online and order a new birth certificate and will have it in less than 5 days and it only cost me 12 bucks. But I didn't even need a drivers license to get my certificate or a social securtiy # for that matter, but I have to have the certificate to get the license. What in the hell kinda crap is this. I have my old room mates birth certificate that she left in my storage, I could more easily get a license with a birth certificate that isn't mine than get my own drivers license that has my obvious pic on it renewed. I'm just dumbfounded.
Why didn't you just get online and go to the Tennessee government webpage and renew your driver's license? That's what I did this year. It was much simpler than waiting in that long line anyway. Just a thought.

I loathe drunk drivers. If you even have one twelve oz beer, you should wait 30 mins before getting behind the wheel. you are no exception. I dont care that you think youve "got it all together", you dont.

If someone wants to go drink, fine, plan ahead for a ride home.

Why not make DUI a felony?

Im marijuana free because someone stole from me that i use to consider to be my family. Family through blood, not words. I didnt know who she was at the time because she had plastic surgery. I know that sounds far fetched but its 100 percent true.

I agree or call for one, if the person you call has any compassion for those undeserving citizens who could be harmed theyll surely help you out.

The only thing that deserves to be called garbage is trash at a landfill. People are not garbage everyone is on this earth for a reason. Alcoholics need help its a disease most are not strong enough to beat it on there own. And people say the younger generation is horrible im 21 and proud to stand up for the correct way to express my opinion. They need rehab. Not prison.

Fate and destiny are 99.999999999% lies, the only thing you'll find out by following that path is that EVERYONE dies.You arent BORN to do anything,that's what you LIVE for. PS Alcoholism isnt a disease but an addiction for some.

P.S. Alcoholism is a disease and has been classified as on for years now.

Definition By Mayo Clinic staff

Alcoholism is a chronic disease in which your body becomes dependent on alcohol. When you have alcoholism, you lose control over your drinking. You may not be able to control when you drink, how much you drink, or how long you drink on each occasion. If you have alcoholism, you continue to drink even though you know it's causing problems with your relationships, health, work or finances.

Here's others then...you're wrong, alcoholism is a disease. Maybe you are as nuts as you portray yourself to be.

Alcoholism or alcohol dependence is defined by the American Medical Association (AMA) as "a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations."
- medical-tionary.com

During the past 35 years,numerous studies by behavioral and social scientists have supported Jellinek’s contentions about alcoholism as a disease. The American Medical Association endorsed the concept in 1957. The American Psychiatric Association,the American Hospital Association,the American Public Health Association,the National Association of Social Workers,the World Health Organization and the American College of Physicians have also classified alcoholism as a disease. In addition, the findings of investigators in the late 1970s led to explicit criteria for an "alcohol dependence syndrome" which are now listed in the DSM IIR, DSM IV,and the ICD manual. In a 1992 JAMA article,the Joint Committee of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine published this definition for alcoholism: "Alcoholism is a primary chronic disease with genetic,psychosocial,and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol,use of alcohol despite adverse consequences,and distortions in thinking,mostly denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic."
- physiciansnews.com

To establish a more precise use of the term alcoholism, a 23-member multidisciplinary committee of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and the American Society of Addiction Medicine conducted a 2-year study of the definition of alcoholism in the light of current concepts. The goals of the committee were to create by consensus a revised definition that is (1) scientifically valid,(2) clinically useful, and (3) understandable by the general public. Therefore, the committee agreed to define alcoholism as a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is often progressive and fatal. It is characterized by impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with the drug alcohol, use of alcohol despite adverse consequences, and distortions in thinking, most notably denial. Each of these symptoms may be continuous or periodic.

Well, I have had what you're calling a disease and im not certain as to how you're going to school me about the matter.Im not willing to accept some of the parameters for determining disease that those publishers are and i dont feel that a drinking problem is a disease.
