This idiot doesn't deserve freedom for a very long time . He fled the scene too which pisses me off. Coward

This is a reminder not to drink and drive. St. Patty's day is coming up so call a taxi or have a designated driver. Don't chance ending someone elses life because you may think your good to drive. Stay safe everyone
