Common Sense Lesson #154

courthouseDoors.jpgThis is a corollary of several previous lessons, which have talked about the fact that it’s not a good idea to show up to court drunk when you’re facing charges of DUI or public intoxication. Well the apparently not-so-obvious corollary is this:

Don’t show up to court drunk, period.

Especially in the early morning hours. Seems that this is exactly what Brian Busch did. The 54-year-old man chugged back four beers and some mimosas, and then rolled over to the local courthouse. He plopped down in a chair outside the probation office around 8:20 in the morning, and was later arrested and charged for public intoxication after being found by some sheriff’s deputies.

And the best part? Busch he had no reason to even be at the courthouse in the first place! Well played, Mr. Busch, well played.
