For anyone that has rude or any kind of comments other then nice...should be punched! How would you feel if this was you?! Always put yourself in the situation first before you speak. You wouldnt like it to much if people said that about you!

I'm not a drunk, never be me. Tell us where you live and well see who you can try to punch? I suspect your a coward who made up the name, probably not even female. Supporting drunk drivers is your problem. If you have to put yourself in. The drunk drivers shoes? I'm glad he's caught and he deserves all that happens to him! You missed all the others users upset about the drunk driver.

If it was an accident or not makes not difference, he didn't stop and that resulted in a death of someone who could have lived had he followed the law. He knew he hit something being as he lost parts of his jeep, there is no excuse.....period!

Hi
Destiny and this one were added by the BTR guy pretending to be a Ben. Two peons mad at a neighbor. Just a couple of upset babies.

They retort to nasty actions when they don't get their way. Ones a big bald baby. He's been on here posting crap for about three years. Ever since he moved in that tiny Sheriff sale house daddy bought.

Taking medicine for your temper? Or you want to punch someone? Sympathizing with drunk drivers knowingly hitting women? You got away on a drug charge again.

Actually he was laughing on the news. Everyone seen it. "hey I just ran someone down and left them to die, but cool, I'm on TV" It doesn't matter if it was an accident or not. He knew and addmitted to hitting "something" and, he also admitted to being in the bar all day. All on the news, and quoted from him. The fact that he didn't stop...well, that's just murder.

WPXI has the affidavit:

According to the affidavit, Allegheny County police were contacted by McKeesport police after they received an anonymous tip from someone who reported a neighbor arriving home early in the morning with front-end damage to his car.
When police arrived at Tatters' home, investigators said they found damage on the right, front-end fender flare of his Jeep Cherokee.
According to the affidavit, Tatters told police "he knew they would be coming."
Tatters said he originally thought he hit a dog and then later realized it may have been a deer.
The medical examiner said he found hair samples on the car.
Tatters said he was at the Country Corral Bar from 2:30 p.m. Tuesday until 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Tatters told police he was there because his ex-daughter-in-law was training as a new bartender. The affidavit said Tatters admitted to having three beers before driving home.

“Whether he was a steel worker, an engineer or a dentist, we’re still going to do everything as we normally do,” Schurman said.
