    Hmmm, I would've guessed that Jones had a posse with someone who could drive.

    When you are over the legal limit of .08 there is no guarantee you will feel it. Driver beware! Think about what you drank not how you feel. This maybe the issue. Any info on what the test result was?

    From the fighters.com article:
    The fighter’s mother is reported to have bailed him out of jail after the incident.
    That alone should guarantee that he'll never make the same mistake again.

    Stupid act on his part, yes.
    But the media and general public's overreaction to these things is equally stupid in my opinion.
    He's an athlete, not a saint.
    I agree with what people are saying, I think I just failed at my point (too tired to coherently put together my own thoughts); OZZ does a good job at what I was trying to make a point of.

    And of course, if you ever thought you were over the limit, don't drive at all, find another way. He had the money to buy a robot car to drive him (probably from Google) so he could have for sure.

    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    I know nothing about the law but to me that seems absurd. Was there any scientific literature which contained statistics indicting chapstick may cause a false high reading? Or proposed chemical mechanism for how chapstick could affect the reading? If not I do not want to live on this planet any more.

    No sir, that is why he was able to prove reasonable doubt. We couldn't prove otherwise.

    Isn't the word "reasonable" in there to prevent this? Don't judges have power to stop attorneys from creating "unreasonable" doubt?

    I wouldn't say Jones is a bad person based on one DUI. Just inexperienced and a bit dense. Now if he gets more DUI's, then he's more than a "bit' dense.

    Huh, I didn't know you were that young. That an extremely naive thing to say by the way.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Not young or naive, just curious if we have an idiotic system or idiotic judges.
