I hope Dean stays off the highways around here as I am certainly not ready to die. It's very scary to think that someone with a bit of "clout" and "cash" can just continue to break the law and remain free. As for the claims this is a two year old charge, it is, the anonymous tip to WWAY was about the outcome of this trial. I watched the video and recognized Dean immediately.
I too, am puzzled that the defendant admitting to taking copious amounts of Valium/Xanax with alcohol and then getting behind the wheel, if that ISN'T considered DUI, what is. What really is wild is that he was driving without a tire, WTF! I believe if my tire blew out I would be able to tell, but that's just me.
If he is in recovery, only time will tell. Having over 25 yrs. of Al-Anon(recovery for someone who loves an alcoholic) myself, I am familiar with all the behaviors. If old Dean-O can earn his one year chip in say...1 yr. then perhaps he is on the road to recovery but until then, if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, well, it just might be a drunk, oops, duck.
Good Luck Dean, you sure as hell need it.
