It just went from bad to worse


TheRealPitabred

With about the best possible outcome at the end, given the circumstances. Nobody else hurt, no major property damage except to his own.


Formerhurdler

Nobody was hurt? Then shut UP.


baggypants69

"Then shut UP." Lmao.

This is how you win all arguments right here.

When I tell you I am still in tears over that.. Man is in the worse possible position he could be in that day, and still choosing violence.. 😂😂

I am still chuckling too. Why so HATEFUL. Might be the jersey...

Are you a cop?!

Yup 👍

Then shut UP

I read this without watching the video and thought you were being an ass. Upvote for you.


zublits

Goes into the comments without watching the video 🙃


MAK0___

Well to be fair, I watched w/o listening first so I was confused too.


AMDIntel

And I watched it without sound cause I'm totally not at work.


MAK0___

Shhhhh I’m totally not, either!


[deleted]

Are you my boss? Then shut up.


Formerhurdler

Hold it REEEEEAL close to your ear. I have totally not ever done that before, just a thought. Y'all "Then shut UP" was the best part of the video. 😁😁😁


MAK0___

Well you see, I have this all nailed down for when I scroll Reddit when I'm totally ***not*** at work- I scroll on my computer and if I see a video I want to listen to really badly, I'll pull it up on my phone and listen through my airpods. Again, this is ***never*** while I'm at work. And yes it was ahahah


spdelope

He spends 12 minutes reading the comment to see if watching the 2 minute video is worth it.

The best outcome would be if there was a /r/convenientcop nearby.

From a strictly entertainment perspective, I think you could argue it just gets better. No one was hurt, no major damage, and everyone is entertained.

Literally the best thing that could have happened here. We need more cars to lay down for a nap when it’s being driven by an idiot.

ProfessionalRetard12

I thought it was over when he drove into the tree but there was so much more video


BoozeIsTherapyRight

IKR? I thought, oh, here's one of those videos that runs on so much longer than it should, but then there was more!


spicybright

It's actually impressive how bad he fucked up. I've never seen a car flip going that slow. I can't even see anything that would have flipped him over (maybe I see a stump in front of the speed limit sign) Also random story time of when I was an idiot in a car, but in a better way. I was driving behind a work pickup truck with commercial plates that was driving like the dude in the video. He went half way into the other lane, was inches from telephone poles, etc. It's a slightly busy road but there's lots of people that walk it, so I felt I had to do something. I waited for a clear road ahead + a side street, drove into the middle of the road, and leaned on my horn. He tapped his brakes (like I thought he would) but pulled onto the street after I pointed out the window. After he pulled over I walked to his window like a cop and voiced my concerns. He gave the run around "I don't know the area well" but he had terrible "drunk face". I talked to him a bit and let him go, saying "please don't hurt anyone today, ok man?" He drove off towards where a cop was posted so I didn't bother calling it in. In retrospect this was a dumb thing to do. Could have been a crazy person with a gun thinking I was a cop or something (although I think being a 5'3" female helped). tl;dr I got to play cop and it was fun


EpicRepairTim

I was behind a guy in a flatbed over in Idaho a few months ago, out in BFE in the middle of the night. It was pretty entertaining to watch but difficult to get around.


TiredYak

And just when I think the video can’t get any worse… he flips the car 😂


clintkev251

Honestly that was probably for the best, seemed to flip it without doing much damage to anything else. Could have done much worse had he kept going


taarotqueen

yeah this is one of those few scenarios where the car flipping is actually the best outcome. dude seems “okay” (physically) and he’s out of the way now and won’t be able to continue driving


Significant_Pop_8590

How can a grown man get that messed up and think it’s ok to drive? I mean I will get wasted but I’m not about to drive after! What a jackass


Familiar_Raisin204

>How can a grown man See there's your first problem...


BEZ4042

The very first thing that happens after you take your first taste of alcohol, it impairs your decision making. It’s all downhill from there.


idontremembermyoldus

Fucker asked, "are you a cop?". He knew he was doing wrong.


SingularityPrime

Impaired decision making doesn't mean you dont know it's wrong. It just means you're more likely to convince yourself it's okay despite being wrong.


BEZ4042

Exactly.


dingman58

Well put


Boyo_Blanco

Lmao not necessarily. You can be blackout drunk and your lizard brain can still conjure up (somewhat) coherent responses to a situation.


BEZ4042

Exactly. That’s why it was a bad decision.

Why would I show up to a bar sober?


ultraboof

To prison hopefully


feed_me_ravioli

my friend was killed by a drunk driver a few years ago. he was just sentenced the other day - 9 months. 9 months is all he got. i'd be shocked if this guy got even a month behind bars


Spa_5_Fitness_Camp

If you want to kill someone in the US, run them over. If you're sober you can get off scott free claiming it was an 'accident'. Even easier if you put them on a bike. Wouldn't even matter if they were in their own driveway and not the road at that point.


fishers86

A guy I hate with every fiber of my being stepped in front of my car once. Before I could think I had hit the brakes and came to a stop inches away from him. The fucking idiot literally ran in front of my car from the sidewalk without looking for traffic. After I got a look at him and realized who it was I thought it would be too suspicious to hit the accelrater and run him over at that point lol


alienoverl0rd

I know a guy that has 12 has yet to see a day of jail time. It's disgusting how little consequences there are for this.


BakerBalls

What state are you in? I live in NY and I’m pretty sure you’re fucked after 3. I'm ashamed to say that I got one about 14 years ago at this point, but I'm so happy I did. I was a fucking idiot in my 20's and getting arrested was the only thing that ever taught me a lesson. I had to pay a total of about $10k and I was making piss poor money at the time. I'm not even sure how I managed it. I learned my lesson though and haven't even considered driving while impaired again. The fact that this isn't a wakeup call for everyone who gets one is really beyond me.


3dge-1ord

Plus you need a lawyer, all kinds of fees for courts and courses to attend. Impound/tow fees. Suspended license to reinstate. Gotta be over to $5k to get one.


JC1515

$10k is just the fine most states require you to pay after 1. $5k is on the cheap end for a lawyer and court costs


stfleming1

What happened in-between getting caught drunk driving and their court date? Most of the time, you sit in jail for a day or two waiting for court. They may still have never been sentenced to jail time, but I would be floored if they never spent the night in a drunk tank. Also, I don't agree with that system at all. Shit's fucked up.


GatitoFantastico

Former boss just got her 7th and is out on bond. The one before this one she lost her bumper on the highway guardrail, had empties rolling around in the backseat, and said she couldn't get arrested because she was on her way to pick up her kids. That one made the local paper. Still hasn't had any jail time. It's so beyond fucked up. Hopefully she'll actually face some consequences at her sentencing next month but I'm not holding my breath.


oh_no_aliens

Sadly he hadn't committed enough infractions for prison. His license will be revoked, he'll pay a huge fine, probably get *some* jail time if he's already violated a previous drink-driving order, and ordered to do some community service. Then, because we all know how well mental health counseling and substance abuse programs are in America, he'll go back to drinking himself stupid and getting behind the wheel of a 1.5 ton death machine.


skeletalvolcano

That's not how entrapment works. Entrapment has absolutely zero relevance to what we saw in the video.


happyman91

Entrapment is when you are persuaded into doing a crime you would not have done on your own without the influence. Having someone admit to a crime after they have already done it on their own is not entrapment


dhazzyboy

Bruh impaired drivers have to be punished way harder too many people die because of idiots behind the wheel


GetInZeWagen

I really don't get it... Who would defend drunk drivers? Why wouldn't they be an easy target to throw the book at? You can make your own deductions I guess.


Fafnir13

It’s something of an endemic institution. Many people drink and drive frequently without causing any accidents so they don’t see it as a problem. They probably know a lot of friends in the same boat. None of those people think they or their friends should be punished for what they view as normal behavior. I’ve literally heard an otherwise nice, normal person I worked with just laughing off being black out drunk while driving home from a party. Her only thought was if she got hurt or killed it’s fine, who cares. When I pointed out she could kill someone’s else she was actually a little shocked by it, like she’s never even considered it. Crazy what basic things people never think about.


weekend-guitarist

I knew a guy with the same attitude. He veered into on coming traffic on his country road killing his neighbor who was riding a motorcycle. He was drunk after hitting the bar at the golf club in mid afternoon. Something he had done a thousand times before. A few years in prison and he’s back out now.


EpicRepairTim

I live in a very, very rural area (like 1000 people in 1500 square miles rural) and there is very little social approbation about drinking and driving because they never crash into other people, they just go off the road by their lonesome. The one dui here that had a fatality to another driver was a drunk farmer driving his pickup slow and some tourists going 90 drove up his ass. We don’t have cabs or Ubers, if you want to go out and have drinks your either bringing a designated or you’re driving drunk. If I close the bar here and drive home I will probably be the only vehicle on the road in my entire end of the county. I can look out at the valley and literally see every car on the road within ten miles by their headlights. It’s just a totally different situation than people in populated areas doing it. Still not smart, but a different universe as far as the risk to others


Zambini

Most people go their entire lives without thinking how they impact other people.


IronCarp

It’s bonkers, I was out for dinner with some family and friends last week and we had a conversation about how an acquaintance died a week before from drunk driving and someone goes “hopefully, it prevents someone else from doing it” as they are slamming beers with the intent to drive home. The cognitive dissonance is real.


Chilipatily

I used to be a defense attorney, I defended drunk drivers. But I didn’t CONDONE that shit. Assholes.


Spoonspoonfork

Other people who like drinking and driving, sadly


thepulloutmethod

The unfortunate reality is that the US is mostly a rural or suburban country, and our public transportation sucks. Sure, rideshares like Uber and Lyft are helpful, but it's not enough. The vast majority of people in this country need to drive every single day to every single task, chore, event, or location.


Spoonspoonfork

I am reminded of this oped from the NYT in 1984 in defense of drinking and driving: [https://www.nytimes.com/1984/06/03/nyregion/long-island-opinion-drinking-and-driving-can-mix.html](https://www.nytimes.com/1984/06/03/nyregion/long-island-opinion-drinking-and-driving-can-mix.html) Actually a funny read, because this is in response to what we would consider today to be common sense, extremely minimal laws.


thepulloutmethod

This was great. I went down a rabbit hole and it turns out that guy lost his seat on the school board at the next election. The only campaign issue? This op-ed!


SilasX

/r/agedlikemilk ... or uncorked wine, as the case may be.


ItsAllAboutDemBeans

While this whole op ed reads pretty goofily almost 40 years later, theres a couple valid points in there. The very high drinking age in the US makes alcohol have an allure to younger Americans than their European counterparts. Making something forbidden to a teenager is a surefire way to make sure they try it, and often they're not taught at that age how to safely consume alcohol. That, imo a valid point and I've always thought the drinking age being higher in the land of the free than most of Europe was pretty ironic. Probably mostly has to do with the history of prohibition and powerful old lobbys like the WCTU and the Anti Saloon League. Frances Willard and Wayne Wheeler would be proud of that I bet. The ultimate conclusion of the oped is pretty damn dumb though. The idea that the right response to people dying from drunk driving accidents is to lower the drinking age and strip back punishment for drunk driving and just "teach our children better" is asinine.

pretty sure his name is Mr. Blackout


roodeeMental

Dude literally could've run over a school of kids and not even noticed. Fuck this wreck of a human


Little_Connection153

"Are you a cop?" This is very similar to the reaction I got from the fuck who ran into me when I was pregnant with my first kid. "Please don't call the police, I have a family." Motherfucker I'm trying to have a family, too! His case got thrown out because there were too many and they couldn't get to it... These people are beyond selfish and the system fosters it.


Godless_Heathen_M

Had the same reaction when a guy almost T-boned me when coming out of a side road. He was on the phone. Fking asshole.


th30be

The idea that there are too many cases is so fucking mind boggling that I don't even know where to start.


lekkanaai

I’m imagining Salma Hayek fucking his shit up like in the Hitmans wife’s bodyguard. She played the role so well I’d love to see a scenario where that kind of character fucks up one of these drunk ass loser’s shit.


Just_Fuck_My_Code_Up

Guy ran me over, fucked up my bike for good and gave me some heavy bruises, begged me not to call the cops. Yeah right, fuck you! Turns out his license was already suspended and when the cops asked if I wanted to press charges I insisted


Cer0reZ

My wife and I were driving home from casino one night in middle of night. Not many cars on road. We see car in other lane come around a bend on a bridge and hit barriers and flip. We were sitting at stop light watching it happen. I jump out and tell my wife to call 911 as I went to help. It was on its roof upside down. I pull door open and help them out. They were way drunk. I ask if they are ok. They said yea. I said ok we called 911 and they should be here any moment. Suddenly he was like did you see that other guy that ran. I’m like ok well police station is two blocks away so they are pretty much here. Cops talks to them. Cop comes to me and says the guy is saying the driver quickly kicked back window out and ran. The back window wasn’t even broken. I told cop we watched it happen and I ran right up and pulled the only opening open to help. And we didn’t see anyone running down road. Only other way would’ve been the “other guy” would have jumped off bridge onto road below. Not sure what happened to them but cop wasn’t buying it either. I told him the guy didn’t say anything about another person till I mentioned cops on way. Not sure who the real driver was because they were not buckled in. I only saw ass crack in window as I ran up. They know they are wrong because mention cop and they suddenly start blaming others. They don’t care about what happens unless it’s getting caught.

iimdonee

pretty sure this isnt ops video, ive seen this video reposted a lot before years ago


pcnauta

I'm in awe of that guy's commitment to destroying his car. He tried a couple of times with minimal results and a normal person would have given up and driven home. But not our hero! He was going to destroy that car no matter what! What committment! What resolve! What an idiot!

Olorin_The_Gray

Thank GOD they flipped. So many people could have been killed


L1K34PR0

How drunk are they and how did they not black out yet


xxStrangerxx

That IS blacked out. A recovering alcoholic once told me he thought he was on top of his addiction and so he celebrated with one drink. Then he said the next thing he knew it was a month later and he was several towns over with no memory how he got there.


L1K34PR0

Oh gosh My sister back in her stupid rebel phase only got so drunk to end up in the local hospital a couple of times (she grew out of it and was never an alcoholic, just rebelious) but not enough to forget a whole month


Sewayaki-Kitsune

As someone fighting with alcohol addiction, I want so badly to be able to celebrate like that but that's what happens; you fall right back into that hole.


MrSwidgen

Ya, as mentioned, this most likely is blackout. Blackout drunk doesn't necessarily mean passed out. It simply means that the drunk person has no memory of the things they do or the events that transpire when they sober up.


ReasonableTman

No one ever mentioned that plants or trees sustained Injuries when their involved in accidents. Poor plants and trees.


Cool_Butterscotch_88

cuz if your a cop you have to say


Humbert75

This sickens me. He could of easily run some kid over. I don't understand why this is tolerated or joked about.

I'd pull him out of the car, kick the living shit out of him, throw his ass back in the car the call the cops. Show them the video and when asked about his injuries say it must have happened when he was crashing!


AnotherDreamer1024

At least they only took themselves out.


surfdad67

It might be just me, but I immediately go to “this might be a medical situation” then I see the guy drunk off his ass and getting belligerent, and just no “nope, fuck them, lock him up”


Junglejibe

You can have empathy for someone with an addiction while also being aware that they are a danger to themselves and (importantly) to others. This man should 100% not be allowed to drive a vehicle—solely on the basis that he could *literally kill somebody*.


ObtrusiveMoose
