You splatter everyone else's name but not this person - why?

Uh oh....sounds like my loser of an ex husband showed back up in Wilmington! (Not really...at this point he's so stewed he probably can't remember how to get here).
Would be awesome if this loser could be charged a DUI for each vehicle he hit! Hopefully for the damaged vehicle's owners' there is insurance.

Drunk bumper cars is always a good time!
