Not only is Drunk Driving a problem for Colleges; but apparently it is a problem with ex Police Chiefs as well:

12/4/09 Former Weston MA Police Chief James McShane was arrested for his third OUI offense after an accident that left 3 members of the same family injured; including a 82 year old woman and a 13 year old girl.

Oh, the shame of it all.......oh, the shame of it all......
