Harsh, Dude

DUI343.jpgMan Alive: What’s the most you figure a guy can spend in the clink for a DUI?

Try seven years.

Yeah. A man who refused a breathalyser and denied he was drunk, was sentenced to the maximum possible sentence after getting caught clocking 107 mph with his 11-year-old daughter in the back of the car. It was his fifth DUI conviction.

But that’s probably not why he got such a harsh sentence. It was probably because he was a jackass to the one person you ought to try to be nice to. Indeed, during sentencing, Lance Major told the judge that he didn’t expect justice from a sarcastic judge and, while the judge was reading the sentence, said, “Just speed it up, you’re boring me.”

You know what’s even duller than a judge reading his sentence aloud? Hearing it ring in your ears for seven years.

TFA says he only got 15 days for contempt of court, and most of the rest was technically not for DUI but "incident-related charges" (e.g., child endangerment).

Just sayin' :-)
