No excuse whatsoever for driving drunk. Disrespectful is what these criminals do when they get behind the wheel like that. Drunk drivers deservebe humiliated. I wish their photos were published as well!

i agree with EARL should be publicly humiliated by the report , when someone decides to drink and drive and take your life and the life of your loved ones into their own hands dont you think they are humiliating themselves having people throwing up out the door as their driving and in reply to steven , you would not worry about their level of humiliation if they run over or crash into someone that you love ,god forbid! i go out and have drinks like anyone else and guess what i do ? I CALL A TAXI, BECAUSE I AM A RESPONSIBLE ADULT!

Barf? my 12 yr old MIGHT speak/write this way....can't we be a little more professional in our choice of words?

Yes is is humiliating, and yes other publications do use people's name when they are released by police, minor's names are generally withheld. If it looks like you "allegedly' committed a crime, be prepared to defend yourself, in court, and the court of public opinion.

It's important for the general public to know who is out there commiting crimes such as burgleries,assaults,driving drunk and worse.It has nothing to do with gossip, it's all about keeping ones family and property safe.Steven's comments sound like he has or will commit a crime on innocent family. He just does'nt want anyone to find out about it

I agree with Diane. "Barf" is totally unprofessional reporting. You can and should strive to do better.

So everyone with these preconceived notions that all the crap is true should know that half this bull that is posted in not true

Being found not guilty or having lawyer getting the charges reduced, is not the same as being innocent.
Fugu Maki March 08, 2013 at 02:10 PM
The report is that you were charged. Is that not true?
