If you've got some time to kill and you want to show your kids the dangers of alleged drunken driving (or you just want to remind yourself), Mlive.com has the dashboard video of police stopping Lions president Tom Lewand last Friday night.
Have a look at this link . You see Lewand’s truck weaving from side to side. You see the cop ask him, “How much have you had to drink,” and Lewand replies, “Not a thing.” “Not a thing?” Nooo. I haven’t had a thing to drink in about a year and a half.” “Really? What am I smelling then? “Um, I don’t know, uh, not sure. Uh, breath mints?”
Even after the cop says he can smell the liquor on his breath, you have to admire the resolve of Lewand to stick to his story. But it’s painful to watch him ponder if he should or should not take a breathalyzer test. If he refuses, the police tell him he’s going to jail. If he blows, he knows he’s most likely in trouble (he later registered a 0.21 and a 0.20, according to the police report. That's more than twice the legal limit).
After showing you this, I’ll probably leave this topic alone for a while – at least until we hear from commissioner Roger Goodell. But it’s never good when a team president has a video like this out there online.
