Officer Lindsey's BAC never reached above .08, the legal limit. He therefore was not breaking any laws. Also, if he drove to work, his BAC was not over the legal limit, therefor he is not guilty of DUI. This article even states his highest BAC was .07.
Officer Lindsey is deserving of his award. He is not a hypocrite as he was not driving while impaired. He has taken many drunk drivers/offenders off the road; people who could have hit and killed your loved ones.
Most of the officers at UNCW are great officers, and that includes Officer Lindsey. They work hard and do the best they can. They are the first people to be blamed for something, but they are also the first people you all call with a problem. They risk their lives on a daily basis and deserve respect.
