Eric Musselman (coach of Sacmo Kings) arrested for DUI:

Koren Robinson, Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton, and I know there have been several others lately. It's not that I really care that much, other than I like to see them get the same treatment as the rest of us, but my question is this:

If I can afford a freakin' taxicab, can't a professional athlete or Hollywood type? I'm thinking I would just have a chauffeur! What in the hell would possess people who are choking on their own money to drive a vehicle while intoxicated?

I'm lost.

You know what the punishment for DUI in Cuba is? Let's just say it involves habanero peppers and an empty rum bottle.

I know a few guys who have gotten themselves in trouble down here in that regard - it wasn't pretty. I know* a Canadian who got busted down here for kiddie porn, he's been in the clink for five years. Two more and then he gets transferred to Canada to serve 7 more. BTW, he's serving the time in the national prison, not the one for expats. I've heard some horror stories...

*met him once before he was busted and he was a freak people! He can rot in hell!

I dunno if I have a problem with that TBH

1st offence - ok everyone screws up. - slap on the wrist, cash, 1 year in a work release, maybe another on probation
2nd offence - What are you stupid? - big hit, cash, jail time 5 - 10 years, never drive again
3rd offence - OK you are stupid. - Jail Time, 15 - 20 years
anything after that - You're too stupid to breath. - put them away for good

The guys I know who got busted for DUI were under house arrest and had to stay here for one year.

I'm dead serious.

They still had to work though...

Even in this case, I wonder how expensive can a cab be in Cuba? In Mexico I never pay more than $5-7, and in Ecuador it's usually <$2.

I would hate to be in the Cuban national prison...is it that fortress in Habana where El Che held "trials" aka executions for all those imperialists while bringing justice to the system?

I consider that absurdly harsh for driving under the influence of alcohol unless the driver caused death or serious injury to someone.

You also dont spend a good portion of your time scraping those people off dashboards and windshields.

I think this is a bit lenient. One drunk driving ticket, you take the bus the rest of your life. On the freeway speed is not the wrost thing, bad driving habit are: tailgating, changing lanes irradicily, cutting people off. Drunk driving is serious stuff because you do these things and not know that you are doing them. The jail time I agree with, but for me it's one strike your out. And one of my friends was caught drunk driving and it doesn't change my mind.
