An 18-year-old male from Newton was charged with OUI (liquor) after an officer said he was saw him driving a white sport utility without a tire on Beacon Street. The SUV had no tire on one wheel and extensive body damage. The officer said teen had apparently hit an object and drove away. When the officer pulled the teen over, the teen had bloodshot eyes and reeked of alcohol.
Wow you guys. Some real questionable decision making here. Let’s take it from the top:
1.) If you’ve had a bunch of liquor, probably best to cab it or walk home. Maybe even call Mom & Dad to scoop you? Sure they’re gonna be steamed but not nearly as steamed as when you total the family SUV.
2.) If you’re drunk driving, hit something and lose a tire, best just to call it a loss and stop right there. I mean you can’t really keep telling yourself “I’m good” when you only have 3 tires.
3.) Driving down Beacon St? Nobody will see you there. Not like a major road or anything.
4.) If you’re drunk, driving a car with 3 tires and extensive body damage — you’re gonna get an OUI. Like who doesn’t pull up next to a 3 wheeled car at a stop light and think WTF? Cops sure do. They will even take the time to pull you over and see what your deal is.
