Tales From the RV Park: Perpetually Plastered Goes to the Pokey — 6 Comments

  1. AA didn’t work, but what he’s doing is working so much better??? Of course, he seems to put much more effort into the drinking than into NOT drinking. Next, he’ll just be driving without a license or insurance. :<

    • An excellent point, Jo! I’m sure if he put half as much effort into AA as he does into drinking, he’d have no problem getting sober. I suspect you’re also correct about him continuing to drive without a license or insurance. But he’ll have to get out of jail first.

  2. Maybe I missed something. DUI at 13 and somehow he managed to get a drivers license when he was old enough to drive? At 18 he’s arrested again and he’s STILL was able to continue driving into adulthood to later become licensed to drive a big rig? The Texas DMV should be ashamed! I guess the judges in Texas are more relaxed that California judges. hoo boy.

    • Michi, I don’t get it, either, and neither does my friend and her hubby, who also works for the same hauling company. The two DUIs at 13 and 18 were in NM. I have no idea where the others were, until the latest in TX. When you’re a juvenile, many of the laws don’t apply the same way (unless you’re in Calif., like you said). After some minor sentence at 13, I can only guess his record was sealed at 18 years old. And then he got the one at 18. I have NO IDEA WTF Texas is doing. I cannot believe he was allowed to get a driver’s license, let alone a CDL. Plus, apparently he once killed someone who ‘jumped in front of [his] truck’. What the hell? I know they’re hurting for CDL drivers here in Texas, but gees! I also know someone with two back-to-back DUIs and one 20 years before. He got a slap on the wrist, and a breathalyzer on his truck for 1.5 years. Whatever.

  3. 1st DUI: 6 months jail time, followed by one year loss of license. Second DUI: 5 years in jail, permenant loss of license. If any injuries to others: attempted murder. Loss of life: murder.


    Btw, driving on suspended/revoked license: ten years in prison.

    • That sounds good, and might stop some, but even with California’s harsh penalties many continue to drink and drive. Texas must be extremely lenient.
