The rate of drunk driving is highest among 21-25 year olds (23.4%)
Only one arrest for drunk driving over the weekend, about as typical as they come (the modus operandi, not the number): Jesse Korzen, 21, a former UMass student and somebody not unknown to our police department, as he was arrested back in January for alcohol related rowdy behavior.
His twitter masthead seems to show a typical day drink gathering out at Townhouse apartments in North Amherst which was Ground Zero for the last three out-of-control Blarney Blowouts.

Jesse Korzen in District Court reading his arrest report
In Eastern Hampshire District Court this morning Mr. Korzen was represented by what looked to be a high priced attorney (keep in mind Korzen was arrested on Sunday). He took a standard 24D plea disposition, probably because of the Breathalyzer results of .15% -- almost twice the legal limit.
Korzen will lose his license for 45 days, pay $650 in fines/fees, take a driver education program and be on probation for the next year. As long as he stays out of trouble (here or in New York) the case will be "dismissed", although "Continued Without A Finding" is pretty much an admission of guilt.
His attorney asked Judge Payne to waive the travel restrictions since he lives in New York, and the Judge agreed.
Coincidentally enough -- what are the odds? -- I received an email about an hour after Korzen's District Court appearance from his roommate who was also arrested back in January, requesting deletion of the article.
The guaranteed way of keeping your name from appearing on these pages is pretty simple: Don't get arrested.
