Walter Jacobson says he’s innocent

I like Walter Jacobson.  I’ll admit that.

He changed my opinion of Madonna years ago, after she gave birth to her first child.

He said, on the air, “I like Madonna,” after a brief assessment of Madonna’s entirely responsible opinions on raising children.

Jacobson was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, according to the Chicago Tribune:

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.
