This Chicago DUI attorney has posted here and here about designated drivers. She’s always thought they were a stellar idea. Apparently, everyone doesn’t agree with her on this matter.
Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested and charged with drunken driving after a traffic stop early Tuesday morning, the Jets confirmed on their Web site.
Edwards, 27, was pulled over on the West Side of Manhattan at 5:15 a.m. for having excessively tinted windows, the police said, and a subsequent Breathalyzer test measured his blood alcohol at 0.16. That is double New York’s legal limit.
Jets employees were on hand as the players arrived and exited and the team pointed out in its statement that it provides transportation and security for players attending events in New York.
It just goes to show that having a designated driver still isn’t a guarantee that will prevent some from attempting to operate a vehicle after drinking.
