NO WAY a DUI would stick!!!

DUI is MOTOR VEHICLE LAW!

Public intoxication.. fine
Endangerment... fine

But DUI??? no way.

Honestly, I think it would be more public intox than driving.

Though she looks like she’s had some hard miles.

That’s exactly what I think. Intox, yes. But a DUI, a motor vehicle law? No.

We had a landmark state Supreme Court case here in New Jersey a few years ago that was focused on the merits of a DUI charge outside of the operation of motor vehicles on public roads. It involved an employee at a hockey rink who was charged with DUI for driving the Zamboni while he was drunk. LMAO.
