Sad that this will just end up costing Lincoln County and Newport a bunch of money, to prosecute, and to replace him.

Something has to be done about alcohol consumption in excess. Obviously this guy is educated, doesn't he know its illegal to drink and drive.

Glad he did not kill anyone

They better fire him. Its his second offense. The first is still outstanding.

He's in big trouble in Oregon, Carlos. They don't play around with drinking and driving. And the fact that he ran into his house and hid!!! What a doofus.

It must be difficult to find anyone qualified to work in government?
