    Well, I will say this. I have used prescribed amounts of Ambien. It can make a person do wacky things.

    I heard this evening that the police have reassigned the Watch Commander.

    Then who else is lying too?
    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." -- From a letter signed by Joe Lieberman, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara A. Milulski, Tom Daschle, & John Kerry among others on October 9, 1998

    But lets not divert the thread to another Iraq thread. I will concede that most all politicians (if not all) lie at least some. I don't think the Bush administration lied about WMDs, misinformed maybe by bad intel, but not a dangerous lie.

    If he failed the field sobriety then the breathalyzer would back his presc med story. I however don't blame him, I mean if the cops offered you a ride home because of who you were, would you refuse.

    Watch commader has some splaining to do..

    Indeed! One of the scariest things I've heard about recently is "sleep driving". That is why I said it might be a plausable explanation. Its also possible kennedy was "drunk as a skunk". Still the DC law enforcement failed miserably - not giving a field sobriety test and thus giving someone preferential treatment because of his family name.

    Where I live it is not at all uncommon for the police, or the police chief, to give someone a ride home when they shouldn't be driving.

    Is that even after the person who shouldn't have been driving has crashed his car?
    I don't know how small a town/city you live in, but this isn't Andy and Barney letting Otis lock himself up to sleep it off! :lol:

    Out of curiousity, is there more than 1000 people where you live? :D I'm sure many small towns, where everyone knows everyone, that the sheriff or police chief to give someone a ride home, Maybury RFD style. Even still, I would be surprised to see it happen if that person was responsible for an accident in the process. They might still give them a ride home, but the take all the necessary data, write the ticket or whatever, first. That did not happen with Kennedy.

    1800 within the city limits. If no one else was involved, as was the case here, depending on the individual's past record, the Police Chief could decide dealing with his insurance company was going to be punishment enough. Many times single car accidents do NOT result in a ticket.
