      You know what? Drunk driving will get you fired from any company no matter what your role is.
      This is simply not true. Many people keep their jobs despite picking up a DUI or something of the like. Bus drivers, cops, truckers...

      As long as you're not caught drinking and drive while on duty, or using your CDL, there's no reason you'd lose your job, or your license.

      You may lose your civilian license, but you keep the CDL.

      this would have been simpler if they were black and the cop could have just shot them.

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      Listening to the radio this morning they listed their three charges and none were alcohol related. However, they did mention that the scent of alcohol was noted in the report. If the cop went as far as to note it in the report I'm sure he did a further test and it turned out that it was not at a level worth being a charge. So it's a perception thing more than anything else. Still dumb, though.
