.08 High Five! - A Penn­syl­va­nia man is fac­ing a vari­ety of charges after try­ing to high-five a patrol­man — who had just deter­mined the guy was dri­ving with more than twice the legal amount of alco­hol in his sys­tem. A Penn­syl­va­nia cop pulled over Ger­ald Decker because his lights were not turned on at night. The odd reac­tion — and the smell of booze — led the offi­cer to admin­is­ter a field sobri­ety test, and dis­cover that the man had a blood alco­hol level of .21. The legal limit inPenn­syl­va­nia is .08. Decker is charged with dri­ving under the influ­ence, dri­ving with­out head­lights, dri­ving on a sus­pended license and care­less driving.

Calvin said Tues­day. “It was either me or him, and it was him.“Walkerwas arrested on a count of strong arm rob­bery. His bail was set at $10,000 and he was ordered to stay clear of the Burger King.

Dri­ving Under the Idiot Influ­ence - An Ore­gon man cel­e­brated his first legal drink with a bang — which was caused by him crash­ing his car into the side of a rehab cen­ter. Damien Bit­tar had expe­ri­enced just 90 min­utes of legal drink­ing before climb­ing behind the wheel — and then dri­ving off and slam­ming into the side of a facil­ity charged with get­ting folks sober. Bit­tar was busted on DUI charges — although it’s not cer­tain if the “I” stands for intox­i­cated or ironic.
