I knew a lady that got a DWI half a block away from her house. So buy a hugh supply so you do not have to go out.

If you're gonna get wasted, park in the driveway backwards so you don't have to back out.

I'm surprised the cops didn't gun him down under the stand your ground law, and for carrying a concealed bottle while threatening to breath on them with deadly force.

I don't think they can make it stick if he was on his own property. The DUI law should only be applicable when it occurs on public right of way.

The story fails to state clearly if he made it off his property, however.

Yes I thought the same thing, otherwise you would need a driving licence to drive on your own property.

It's all about "control of the vehicle". If you're in the car and have keys, you are considered in control of the vehicle. I've heard of DUI's where the guy was just sleeping it off. Don't know how they were adjudicated though.

If not for a fence to stop him that guy would have been driving drunk on a public highway. The police did the right thing!!!
