  • DUI/DWI

    Drinking while intoxicated? I guess a (Professional Athelete) really hasn’t any serious career ending or transportation concerns like most of us who would have if they decided to make a poor choice like drinking and driving which puts everyone’s life in jeopardy when they drive while intoxicated.
    just looking at Yim Jennings mugshot, he doesn’t look too remorseful to me.

    All this guy has to do is hire a chauffeur for a year, pay a fine and he’s good to go, gets to keep his job.
    What is almost as tragic is a professional athelete salary coupled with the majority of them with their lack of leadership on young impressionable children by their actions uhh I mean inactions.
    However I would say it’s safe to say money talks and the NFL as well as the NBA, MLB & the NCAA don’t really mind as long as the money flows and the CEO’s keep their jobs.

      • Hmmm

        To your comment, the question should not have been “how many young impressionable children where with him”? When he was pulled over driving while intoxicated.
        The real question begs to be answered is that how many young impressionable children and innocent people did he drive past while he was intoxicated? And God forbid if he would’ve crashed and hurt or killed one or more of them.
        See that’s what I am talking about. It’s bad enough people every day that poor judgement and impairment leads them to think they can drive DUI/DWI/OWI & they don’t realize they put everybody an their families in jeporady.
