Father who used child as designated driver gets probation

Posted on February 23rd, 2012 No Comments

The 39 year-old father, who made headlines last year after allowing his nine year-old daughter to drive the family mini van because he was too drunk to drive, has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Last October,  Detroit-area gas station security cameras caught his daughter driving the van up to a gas pump. Her father got out and allegedly bragged to the people inside that his daughter was a good driver and even called her his designated driver.

The man admits to struggling with alcoholism and says he has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He pleaded guilty to charges of second-degree child endangerment and allowing a minor to operate a motor vehicle.

Officer fired after involvement in fatal drunk driving crash

Posted on January 16th, 2012 No Comments

A Katy police officer was fired from the department after it was discovered that his truck was involved in a fatal crash on Interstate 10 last week.

The officer was not driving the vehicle, but the Katy Police Department states that it could not condone his careless decision to allow a drunk man to get behind the wheel. A 48 year-old woman and her 12 year-old son were killed when the officer’s friend hit their disabled vehicle.

The mother had pulled over to the shoulder of the interstate after getting a flat tire. The truck then hit their car, causing it to burst into flames. The driver is facing two counts of intoxication manslaughter. The officer has the option to appeal his termination.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims.

HPD officers reprimanded for officer DWI

Posted on September 27th, 2011 No Comments

Seven Houston law enforcement officers are in hot water after an investigation showed they helped cover up a fellow officer’s drunk driving accident. In April, a police sergeant crashed into an empty school bus on his way to work. The officer had bottles of wine and open beer cans in his car, but other officers at the scene claimed he was not drunk despite having a blood alcohol content of 0.176.

The sergeant has been fired from the Houston Police Department and at least two officers were suspended for one day without pay. The assistant chief was given a written reprimand. The bus driver was issued a ticket for failing to yield, which has since been dismissed.

Man hit by drunk driver could lose leg

Posted on August 23rd, 2011 No Comments

A 24 year-old Midland man has been charged with a third-degree felony charge of intoxicated assault with a vehicle resulting in severe bodily injury after he hit a motorcyclist last Tuesday. The man hit the motorcyclist west of I-20 around 2:30am before he left the scene of the crime. He was found a little while later and was arrested after he failed three field sobriety tests local police administered.

The man initially refused a blood test, but state law requires one due to the severity of the accident. He was held on $30,000 bond and was released after it was paid. He could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

The motorcyclist, currently in critical condition, may lose his leg due to his injuries.
