His blood alcohol level was reported at .15 which is nearly double the legal limit.
We suspect he would like a MULLIGAN on the entire caper. The politico probably will never again have the international recognition he has garnered for himself, his family, and the state of Idaho. Here is the international coverage from LONDON.
He is to be arraigned Monday in 4th District court on the two charges which stem from driving off in a strange vehicle he found with keys in the ignition after leaving a golf course and jackkniffing the rig in the driveway of a SW Boise home with children watching at 3 a.m. Deputies found him asleep in the vehicle.
Will he try to explain away his “error” and claim he didn’t notice the 20 foot trailer hitched on the back of the Ford Excursion which didn’t belong to him? Will his lawyer argue the grand theft was just part of his DUI and should be dismissed? Will he tell his constituents he “intends” to resign in a bid for time? Will he pull a Weiner, fall on his sword and beg forgiveness?
The ensuing weeks of media coverage will be interesting.
