A man charged with his third DUI on Friday is free on bond.

  1. How many chances do you give some one convicted of DUI before he is either kills himself of takes a poor by stander with him.
    Judges need to get tough.

  2. Great job citizen and FPD! It’s a team effort out there! Be safe and as always, thank y’all for all you do!

  3. I am complete agreement with Ron and Ed. Our brave traffic police can only do so much..I wonder how they feel when picking up a drunk driver for the third time and know their precious time is wasted. Wonder what would happen if one of these repeat idiots caused harm to a judges family during one of their third or fourth intoxicated time on the road????? Seriously, what can the average citzen do to stop these ridiculously lenient court action?
    Please refer me to the correct resource of this law/policy.

  4. Stories like this are not much of a deterrent for people who want to drive drunk. Might as well be front page, bold type “DRUNK DRIVER GETS THE OPPORTUNITY TO KILL A FAMILY MEMEBER OF YOURS, ONCE AGAIN”. Shout out to the FPD, for trying to fix a problem that our elected officials refuse to handle. Someone needs to call the Channel 4 iTeam.
