So now I'm just wondering why this piece of garbage was not left in the van so he could burn with it.It would have served as a justifiable punishment without costing the taxpayers unnecessary tax dollars keeping him in jail ang flipping the court bill.Case closed.

I known John from when my son was in Boy Scouts with him. He was the one us adults had to keep an eye on when camping. Only child, parents bought him a car at 16....this doesn't surprise me one bit.

I've known John back in 2001. We worked together at Bob Evans in Hilliard. He was a nice guy but other thing, just cautious about him. We used to be friends and not anymore. I hope he would to learn his own lesson about what happened to himself.

Yeah, the passing lane is the left lane. You are obviously clueless and shouldn't be allowed to try to form an opinion. Although it is very cute that you tried.
Not in Columbus. If you want to pass you better be in the right lane, the left lane is for driving slow and sight seeing.

I work with the gun that this idiot ran into and he is not in fair condition. His leg snapped in half by the caving in of the dashboard and he has had to have extensive reconstructive surgery. He will not walk for quite some time.

<quoted text>Im glad your done since you are comparing illegal drugs situations to this legal booze overdose...apples and oranges..no blame game just shared responsibilities. don't drink and drive and don't keep serving those who have lost their reason due to the alcohol your are freely pouring..feel free to use your Glock though.
Too bad it's illegal to use it on people like you.
No I was NOT comparing apples and oranges. I was simply mentioning the possibility that he could have been on OTHER mind altering substances at the time of the incident. I have been a bartender. I have told people they are cut off. I have served thousands of people who probably had a few too many as well. But you know what? It's THEIR choice. Regardless of how much I have ever had to drink, I still knew well enough to not drive as it can end up like this. It was his choice to drink and keep drinking. I have never seen anyone hold a gun to someone head and force them to drink. That's the key here. He made a choice earlier on to drink and keep going. If he passed a point where he could make that decision with logic and reasoning that is HIS fault. So enjoy your holier-than-thou life because you are obviously better than anyone else on here. Bet you have never even ripped the tags off your mattress you pompous arrogant prick.

I have known John for quite a few years, we haven't talked in a long time though. Few things you should know about him.

1.) Hes not a terrible person, He is kind, funny, and talented.

2.) When he drinks, he seems to change. He gets very sloppy very fast (he is what most people would consider a "lightweight")

John might not be the brightest kid Ive ever known, but he is not a devil. I understand he could have EASILY killed someone or himself that night, I hope the consequences of this will incident help him to change into a better, more responsible person. He is lucky, most people dont get another chance at life!

Shame on all of you...John is kind, intelligent, and hardworking. He has made a life for himself; started his own business, is pursuing a college degree, and has stayed on the straight and narrow for quite some time.
He was mugged and drugged hours before the incident.
