I heard on the radio that the head of the TSA got busted on DUI. I came to work and just found out that it was my buddy that Busted him. The dumb a$$ is'nt disputing the DUI just the time he was busted. Because he was on duty when he got hammered!
The details are juicey. I'm going to go see the tape later on today!

Interesting. Anyone think the TSA will replace the BATFE as the most laughable arm of the imperial federal government?

Please keep us posted.

Did your buddy search him for nail clippers and small scissors before bringing him down to the station?

Well, He had 2.6 blood alchol and a empty bottle of Vodka on his set. He left work and hour earlier than he should have, so he was drinking well before the new year on the job.

I bought my buddy a Starbucks for that. Those TSA are bossy bastids and they think they run the place.

Just heard that he was replaced. I'm still waiting to see the video on the arrest.

Let's not be to harsh on the poor soul. If you were dumb enough to take his job, I'd betcha that you'd be drinking too. :)

Gosh, a government official who thinks the law doesn't apply to him. There's something new. :rolleyes:

Reminds me of the FBI agent who got drunk, drove the wrong way on a freeway and killed two brothers. The Highway Patrol blamed the kids who got killed :rolleyes:

Can you say "cover-up?" :barf:

It couldn't be 2.6, it had to be .26. Generally speaking:

.10 - Impaird/legally drunk.
.20 - Hammered
.30 - You're still standing? Speech slurred.
.40 - Not standing, probably unconscious.
.50 - Probably dead.
.60 - If not dead, you must have a heck of a tolerance. It's possible though, by maybe 0.1% of the population.

If you can get to a .30 and still be standing, you've got one heck of a tolerance built up and pretty much have a drinking problem.

I know somebody that had a .24 (heavy drinker, high tolerance) that had a tire blow out while taking the Field Sobriety tests. He didn't notice the loud bang. The cops hit the deck thinking they were being shot at.... him: unphased. Yes, he knows he shouldn't have been driving and admits it was a horribly horribly stupid thing to do. He learned from it.

Summary: .26 is pretty far up there. That's over 3 times the state limits being manded by the federal government.

Just for the record ;)

Yahoo Oddly Enough News (19Dec03)

RIGA, Latvia (Reuters) - Latvian police said a drunk picked up with around twice the blood-alcohol level considered deadly had probably set a world record but would wake with a hangover to match. The unidentified middle-aged man was unconscious but stable after a blood test showed 7.22 parts per million of alcohol, police spokeswoman Ieva Zvidre said. An average person would vomit at around 1.2, lose consciousness at 3.0 and stop breathing at a level of about 4.0 parts per million, Zvidre said, adding: "This is one for the Guinness Book of Records." The hospital's emergency ward head Martins Sics told reporters there was no record of anybody having survived such a dose, even in neighboring Russia which takes pride in its vodka-guzzling traditions. "He won't remember a thing when he comes to,"Sics said.

I had sent this to an old drinking buddy with the comment that, "Everyone needs some personal goals."

And just to keept it on topic, don't play with guns when you're drinking! :p
