That's a promising start of the year...

Tyler Byrd has made mistakes but he is an outstanding citizen and deserves a fifth chance.

lock up fools like this so they can't be a threat. Our current system doesn't do enough to protect us from morons like this.

his friends and family must be so proud of him

I feel so sorry for this guy. Please, give him "One More Chance". He's really a good guy. Its not his fault if, and when, he kills someone, next time. He shouldn't have to live by the rules, like the rest of us.

What's on his forehead...a note from his Mother...or bird poo on the camera lens?
Didn't he star in the movie..."The Pianist"?

ain't a clue....

That's ok buddy! when you go to court they will only slap your hand for 2 DWI's this year and driving on a revoked license. You only hit an office building and haven't killed anyone yet!!! Next time you run into an office building there may be people on the sidewalk you mow down and kill, then you might get a few months in jail .

His parents and friends must be so proud of him
