You drink and drive, innocent people die
Getting hard to keep up with all the Party Houses and DUI arrests when a mega story like gang rape sweeps everything aside. Common denominator is of course alcohol. Yes, a legal although regulated product that produces profits like there's no tomorrow.
Of course the downside is for some people -- like a UMass student a couple of weeks away from graduation last spring -- there will never be another tomorrow.
1:19 AM early Saturday morning police pulled over a driver in front of Presidential Apartments near UMass for a "defective license plate". He blew a .08% BAC and was arrested for DUI:
Glenn Jacob Esienhard, 207 Roberts Road, Ardmore, MA, age 22
1:36 AM early Sunday morning police were called to the half-way point on the steep side of The Notch in deep South Amherst near the Norwottuck Gun Club entrance for a "single vehicle rollover". After the car stopped sliding, the occupant pulled himself out and was trying to enlist bystanders (who stopped to help) into flipping the car back over on its wheels so he could flee the scene. Arrested for DUI:
Alex Carlton Koblinski, 72 N. Main St, So. Deerfield, MA, age 22
1:18 AM early Monday police were called via cell phone over a "road rage" incident. Arrested for DUI:
