Further adding to my point from Sunday that Lions president Tom Lewand – who was arrested last Friday on a DUI charge – needs to be punished and punished severely , the Detroit Free Press wrote today that Lewand’s blood-alcohol contest was more than twice the legal limit. According to the police report, he also told police that he hadn’t taken a drink in a year and a half and that he was the designated driver that day.
From the article:
The report says Lewand performed a couple of field sobriety tests but did not walk heel to toe, as requested, and could not balance on one leg. He also touched his upper lip when asked to put his finger to his nose.
After initially refusing to take a breath test for blood alcohol level, Lewand later took the test, registering a .21 and a .20.
In Michigan, a driver is considered drunk if his blood alcohol level is more than .08.
Lewand later issued a statement, saying, “I am deeply sorry for my actions and take full responsibility for them. As a person in active recovery, I am committed to taking all necessary steps to insure nothing like this ever happens again."
