Police got a 911 call reporting that a vehicle was seen swerving after hitting a parked vehicle. Police said they responded to the scene and, using a description of the striking vehicle and its license plate, found Jacobson, 70, who submitted to a field sobriety test.
“He was taken to the [Near North] District, where a Breathalyzer test was administered,” said police spokeswoman Monique Bond. “It was determined that he had exceeded the legal alcohol intake limit.”
I like Walter, but I don’t like people who drive under the influence. A dear friend’s father is currently near death after being struck by a drunk driver, so I have no sympathy for those who drink and drive.
In all honesty, I hope Walter comes to terms with what he did, and doesn’t do it again. If he’s in denial, then I hope the judge sees that, and takes his license.
It’s not worth it, Walter. Stay off the road. Don’t be “the guy” who strikes and kills the innocent.
