You people bashing Todd are ridiculous. I am not a drinker, never have been, but I think everyone makes mistakes. If this were a repeat offense that would be a different story. Todd is a good guy and a great coach. He is being punished enough by having to look at his players and students in the face. I am quite sure he is very embarrassed, as he should be. But firing him? Come on...this is crazy. Why is it our business anyway? I have been a teacher in our school corporation for 12 years and agree that we are supposed to be role models for all children. He is. He still will be. I am quite sure all of his high school players are supporting him and most likely their parents as well. It is not like he molested someone or had a relationship with a student. He drank a few beers and drove home. Gonna guess he will never do that again. I know drunk driving kills, but so do quite a few other things. I could accidentally wreck while texting my son in an emergency situation...and hurt someone. Mistake, yes. But should I lose my job? Come on. I can imagine that every basketball player on that team would assume that Todd has drank a beer before. Its not like he loses credibility in their eyes. They love him. Get over it. Should NOT BE NEWSWORTHY!

I'm at a loss for words after reading your post. About all I can come up with at this point is...are you serious? I can't believe someone with whom we entrust the education of our children thinks this way...and says so publicly. Unbelievable.

This should not surprise you. Teacher's don't think they should be held accountable for anything, every heard of "tenure?"

So many people think our court system is setup to be fair, equal," justice for all". That a load of C***.
The system is set up for Lawyers to make money for other lawyers.
The prosecutor won't talk to you unless your a lawyer. If you go to court without a lawyer be prepaired to be guilty and pay or in family court lose your case. It's not about Fair and what's right it's about the good old boy system Judges who are Lawyers making sure their old buddys make money. They punish you more if you don't have a lawyer and they will find against you every time if you don't pay for one. Ty pleaying to a lesser offense without a lawyer !! They won't even discuss it because they know they will win if you don't have one. Pay a lawyer and ask for the same plea and they will listen then . "Nothing changed only you have a lawyer so you paid one of their buddies
The system is rigged!! For the lawyers to make money
Absolutely correct. Why else would Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos and Newlin sponsor Operation Pullover.

And you...What the hell? NO BIG DEAL. When I went to Otter Creek the Pricipal was sleeping with the Librarian and the History teacher was sleepin with whatever the (whatever Tom Chiado) taught. The Dean of Boys was a physically abusive pervert minister and the Assistant pricipal was a drunk. The Gym teacher (girls) was a flaming lesbian that watched the girls shower. Is there a "new standard?" This guy did NOTHING that anyone who both drinks alcohol and posseses a drivers license hasnt done at least once. The first one is a wake up call as to how little it takes to truly be over the edge as far as the law is concerned. If he repeats, I have a problem.

He failed to dim his high beam headlights to oncoming traffic. When done in conjunction with OVWI that equals endangering a person per Indiana Code.

Busting it down to a Reckless charge after a documented and published .13 BAC could be Joe Etling/Bill Smock's biggest trick yet...

Its pretty standard. Almost anytime someone is pulled over the fabricated probable cause is construed as a dangerous act.

You are all ridiculous. Tell me, who here has ever even met him? If you have, I would consider it a good thing. Mr Woefle may be in Danny's pocket- and let me tell you, I am the first one to speak out against Danny's extreme corruption- but, he is a good man, and a family man with good values. If any of you can honestly tell me that you have never gotten drunk and done something stupid that you shouldn't have, you are flat out lying. On top of that, Mr. Woefle has a good family and is a very good father. One must be a very weak-minded individual to come to these forums, give a FAKE name, and start mud-slinging other members of our community. This does not do anyone any good at all, and you are proving that Terre Haute truly is the sh*t hole that many claim it to be. Also, if you do the math, his BA level was- if I remember correctly-.13, with the legal limit being .08. Do your research, and .13 is anywhere between 2 and 4 drinks. So, let me ask you this; after 4 beers, do you find it unreasonable to drive on back roads to get home to your family after a night out at the bar? In my opinion, your all immature and ridiculous, and if anyone should be stripped of status in the community, it should be the mud slingers. My name is Michael Ward, and I attend Terre Haute North High School as a sophomore. I have never been athletic, I am not on any sports teams, I have never had any real interactions with Mr. Woefle in school. However, I see him and his family very often (he's my neighbor), and this mud slinging is ridiculous. How do you feel having a sophomore coming in here and lecturing adults? I think you guys need to go back to Kindergarten and learn to 'play nice'. I recall a sign posted in my English teachers classroom, and I feel it relates to the current situation. It reads,'Great people talk about ideas. Average people talk about things.
Small people talk about other people, and then, sadly, there are the people who love to talk about themselves.

Who do you want to be?'

Also, do not bring in any news anchors or their said families into this conversation. I feel I should be finding out who some of the people on this forum are, and delve into their lives to reveal some dirty little secrets. No one is without secrets, and Mr. Woefle is in the unfortunate position to have a prospective position in the community, and as a result, people make a big deal out of an everyday occurrence. Shame on you.

Mistakes are meant to be learned from. It has been proven by science that, first, all behavior is learned. How often does a DUI happen? Pretty damn often. Second, that the only way to learn is to make a mistake a correct it. Mr. Woelfle did something wrong, there is no disputing that, but as it is his first DUI offense,(or at least the first once in his mature adult years past college) let him learn from his mistake. If it happens again, there is a problem. If it does not, which I doubt it will, then this could be a learning experience. No one was harmed, so let it go.

Michael...I applaud you sticking up for your teacher/coach. Your loyalty is commendable and I appreciate your ability to form cogent thoughts and communicate them effectively.

Given your youth and inexperience, I will refrain from picking apart the problems with your posts. Suffice it to see you have a long life ahead of you to learn the way the world actually works.

Study hard, work hard...and don't drink and drive!

Abso-Freakin-Lutely. The BAC is a mystery to everyone and affects everyone differently. Someties it actually takes the eye opening ripoff reality that this DUI "child killer" charge carries to make a person realize it takes almost nothing to be over the limit. Give this dude a break..13? Yeah, he was buzzed but you can bet until that cop stuck the meter in his mouth he ddnt know he was over.

Not condoning what he did, but the fact of the matter is just because u did something stupid doesn't necessarily make u a bad person. Many of the best motivational/inspirational speakers use there bad experiences to touch people or change others lives.

God uses broken people to reach a broken world. The mistakes of yesterday say nothing about the possibilities of tomorrow.
