Hopefully he doesn't hold a press conference discussing what happened.

How do you get two counts for one arrest?

He got one count and his ego got the other

I'm actually not a Tito fan at all, but I kind of feel bad for the guy. I mean he's essentially spent his entire life being a fighter and he's just recently been told if he keeps fighting he's risking paralysis. I feel like the majority of professional athletes struggle with the end of their careers....some just have better coping skill sets than others. I hope he get's it together.

A friend of mine says some states will give 2 counts of dui in the event a person gets off on one, the other will stick. I assume this is due to him being in an accident

I don't know about DUI's, but that's how the legal system works in general. Throw enough charges at someone to make sure something sticks. For example, someone selling drugs could also be charged with tax evasion, since they don't report their "income".

I've heard of that, but never two of the same thing. Usually it's DUI + reckless endangerment + conduct after an accident, etc.
