    Oh man, where to begin with this one.

    He made that tough decision that so many St. Mary’s county folk wrestle with, seemingly “forced” into a DUI potential – when “supplies” unexpectedly run shy of the needs slated for the evening.

    So it was either “risk everything” – to drive out to get more beer – or face a drawn-out tragic night of boredom and the suicidal tendencies one battles as he sobers up to face the reality of living in LP City.

    He grit his teeth, grabbed his keys, and made his choice. Just look at those desperate, yet honest eyes.

    The defense rests, your honor.

    what is an unsafe manner????

    • A Good Reason on January 10, 2019 at 7:47 am

      That’s when there’s no extremely obvious law “broken” – observed by the cop, but they sense that they need to pull you over.

      Then, there was also no “strong odor” of anything illegal smelled on him, when he put down the window either. So falling back on the “unsafe manner” is a way to establish probable cause.

      After all, the driver has to be guilty of something, but they aren’t positive as to “what” – just yet.

      And – as you can see – in this case, it worked. This one was like a scratch-off – that needed pullin over.

      • A Good Reason must be up to no good on January 10, 2019 at 2:28 pm

        On one hand I get the aggravation of cops seemingly having the ability to do whatever they want. As in, if they claim they smell an odor, it allows them to search.

        But on the other hand, if someone is not breaking the law, who gives a f$%k? This whining about civil liberties falls on deaf ears considering these same people are also the ones that want the government to come take your firearms.

        Here is some advice. Dont break the law. Dont drive drunk. Dont drive high. Dont smoke pot in your car. Dont have illegal drugs in your possession. Avoiding being arrested is the easiest thing to do on this planet for normal people. If you deal with the police regularly (as in, more than once every 10-15 years) there is something wrong with you/the people you associate with. I will never feel sorry for someone whose argument is: “well yeah, I had illegal drugs, and an unregistered firearm, and stolen property in my vehicle, BUT the only reason the cop knew that was cuz he violated my rights”. Get out of here with that. Dont be a criminal

    I guess he figured what did it matter to him if he could kill someone by driving drunk as long as he wasn’t inconvenienced by having to leave his vehicle some ware and pay $20 for an Uber ride. Going to cost him way more then $20 now and he will be majorly inconvenienced.

      It was going so good, right up to “some ware”
