The DARE program, statewide, is now a joke.

The last speeding ticket I got was 11 years ago. I was 9 months pregnant and driving 8 MPH over the speed limit. Got pulled over. NEVER been pulled over in my LIFE, and got a ticket...not even a warning.

But if you drive slobbering drunk, hit curb, blow twice the legal limit, and fail your sobriety test, you get a free taxi ride home?

Oooooooooooooooooookay.

What is the latest and greatest outcome in regards to this incident? How did the Police Department and School Officials resolve this matter? Possible prosecution of the principle?

It's everywhere, why should Fisher be any different??? If you truly belive in your local Government officials and that they would enforce the LAW, than you are as blind as ever.
FYI - Some INCIDENTS are LEAKED to the public and some are KEPT under the table. Nothing NEW. Just hang on and see how things unfold.

Every drunk doesn't need to go to jail. If they did, we would be backing busses up to every bar and lounge at 3am. Officer discretion is part of the job. If officers enforced every law on the books equally, society would be outraged the other way.
Really ! I doubt that you would feel the same if police came to your house at 2AM and told you that your
family member has been killed by a drunk driver, would you?

While a discussion about whether officers should be given this kind of latitude in the future is worth having - there's no need to turn this into a personal vendetta against an individual (the principle or the officer) that will wreak havoc on their lives and careers for months or longer.
You sound like one of the few reasonable, rational people we have heard from so far in this forum.

People get "breaks" all the time. Maybe because of a personal relationship, maybe the circumstances are borderline, sometimes just because they appear to be nice people who have made a mistake - and an officer recognizes that the person is sincerely remorseful.
I was given a break under similar circumstances years ago - and the scare of being stopped was enough to keep me from ever making the same mistake again.

You are so full of crap. Selective law enforcement further teaches our children that if you have the right connections, you can get away with things that most a punished for.

For you, it's called the 'Hind-Lick Syndrome'.

Scott Syverson has on three occasions, brought me into Fishers High School to speak to his students on the consequences of alcohol abuse and drinking and driving. He has clearly shown his concern and his willingness to educate his students on these matters. Now and unfortunately, he will have to use his personal experiences, not just the experiences of mine and others, to make the message clear to students. And that is not such a bad thing, as long as the school will allow Mr. Syverson the opportunity to turn a negative into a positive. He hope for Mr. Syversons sake and his students, he will be given this opportunity.
