If this gets to be common will it be called DUI/DOTB....Driving Under Influence AND Driving On The Boardwalk?

Man, yet another profit center for municipalities...just think of the bucks Coney Island and Long Beach could rake in let alone countless other places in the country copying us.

Towns, villages and cities could build boardwalks EVERYWHERE just to catch felons like this.

Then again, maybe OTB will be jealous and upset and stop the whole scene.

Thanks for listening....just call me Accident Man!!!

This definitely brings back some memories. I used to live and work at Watch Hill, so I can picture every mile of this clown's escapade. Pretty amazing that he got as far as he did without getting stuck.

That's some impressive drunken off road driving. I'm sure he did it with a Budweiser in one hand the entire time.

If the authorities didn't catch him he would have gone all the way to Moses.

Too bad he didnt drive on the Jones Beach boardwalk, and smash straight into "TRUMP'S MONSTROSITY". I would then give him a medal, and call him a cab (NO DUI)
