I hope that Wright enjoyed the game. It might be the last one that he sees for oh about 20+ years. My heart felt respect goes out to the family of the slain officer.

Open your eyes "Eyes Wide Shut" the article does not say the officer was slain.

I blame college basketball for serving drinks at the game. Dick Vitale should go to jail for allowing drunks like himself for attending the game and the horseplay afterwards.

Austin is a good person, he'd give the shirt off his back if someone needed it. My prayers are with him and the officer involved.

When Austin is in prison, his back will be the last piece of his anatamy that he will be worried about......good for him.

Oh - so sorry to hear about Austin being such a nice person and willing to give the shirt off his back. He was the idiot that choose to drink and drive, he made the choice to commit that act, everyone knows it is not only illegal it is stupid. Now Austin will be held accountable for his actions.
You will say, "Oh it was an accident, everyone does it sometimes, he didn't mean too". I hope you are right because if he desired to get drunk and run someone over than he is a deranged lunatic that should be kept away from society for the remainder of his life.

No one needed a shirt, so Austin kept his. Besides, he was too drunk to recognize if someone was in need of a shirt. Austin was such a great person that he was too drunk to drive.....and he did anyway. Austin was such a great person that he critically wounded a police officer with his truck as he was driving drunk. Then, Austin was such a great person that he fled and forced two motorcycles off the road a few blocks away. Wow, Austin is the kind of guy I would want to hang around with.....NOT! Austin has a new name and it is Asstin. I have no feeling for Asstin and I hope he gets the maximum sentence allowed for each violation and they run consecutively. My prayers go out to the critically injured officer and his family. May the officer have a speedy full recovery.

Hey Austin, stop drinking our beer because you can handle it. Switch to Bud Light (BL) before we get sued for not being there to stop you from drinking!
