A mistake is turning left when you needed to turn right. Getting behind the wheel after drinking is a choice. He obviously made a bad choice and now has to live with the repercussions of that choice. Remember that stupid girl at Wrightsville Beach that was drunk and wrecked? Same applies to her. They both made choices and now have to deal with them. No pity from me. There are so many other alternatives to driving drunk. 1) Have a DD. 2) Call a cab. 3) Don't want to leave your car behind, call a tow truck. They will take you & your car home. $50-$75 is much cheaper than a DWI. 4) Stay there. 5) Take a cab out in the first place, then you don't have a car to drive.
