Hmmm...I don't seem to see it here. What was the story with the guy they had stopped and sitting on the curb of the median of Park, cross street National on Saturday night/Sunday morning...they had like 6 cars out there and a bunch of officers speaking with the gentlemen, who was then cuffed. I thought I'd see what he was being charged with in this space, but it doesn't appear that I do.

Maybe it was one of the bench warrant arrests

Roy Taylor was charged with DWI, Aggravated DWI, drinking while driving on a highway, passing a red light and driving without a license. My question, if anyone knows the answer, is do any of these lowlifes every do any jail time besides a night to sober up , which they absolutely should, or are they just handed a bunch of tickets?

Mark: This happened to a friend: First DWI. Pled down to impaired and a fine. Second DWI: No driving for six months. 6 months of reporting to probation officer. Friend (in this case me, drives) to probation. After that,driving to work only with one of those breath gizmos in the car--car can't start if alcohol detected. One detection and off to the clink. Probation officers are pros and have heard every BS story there is. They even checked that I was friend's driver. While there, they caught several drunks driving to probation--like Monopoly: Go straight to Jail. Friend complied with all and got off probation after around a year. Entire caper cost friend over $20,000 for lawyer, drunk detecting machine, --drunk pays for everything. When done I told friend next time I'm not driving--that would make me enabler. Drunk was told by judge and probation officer "next time bring toothbrush, you're going to the clink." If anyone was injured by DWI driver, all penalties are more sever.

I knew someone in a similar situation - the 3rd DWI was 6 months jail time + the lawyers fees and fines you described - also about 20K. In this case, Roy was driving without a license - I wonder if that means the physical license in hand or if his license had already been revoked or suspended. It does seem that Roy will be doing some time, but it would be interesting to hear from a lawyer or police officer who may be able to give us a possible scenario.

Thanks Lampchop and Harvey.

Penquin December 06, 2013 at 12:21 AM
We have a way to go until election time - but I do agree that it is getting worse

Funny how karma works.... A month and a half ago ADVA SHALOM hit me with her car on Delaware and park ave..... After launching me across the street she told me several times I'm okay probably because she was drunk and didn't want to be arrested. After she left me there a friend brought me home and I immediately fell asleep. The next day I spent in the hospital where I had numerous head scans. Come to find out I had a concussion and have been on painkillers since. I regret not going to the police and trusting this criminal of a women. Karma is a b itch and I'm glad that this women got arrested directly where she hit me with her car 2 months later.

Take a cab!!! I wish cabs were as easy to come by in Western NY as they are in Long Beach.

So in this context, Mrs Shalom name should be used - by definition - in the context of "goodbye"?
Penquin December 06, 2013 at 03:26 PM
Ms. Gillespie - Since only 6 weeks have gone by, couldn't you still fill out a complaint? That would make a second DWI for Ms. Shalom. Sorry for your pain.

just read a funny letter to the editor in the Herald by Mike Tagney speaking about zero tolerance for DWI he should start with himself he is drunk and driving very often throughout Long Beach . REDFACE MIKE always drunk and always late and never in work on Mondays
Penquin December 06, 2013 at 08:20 PM
Do you think that was part of his contract? No show required and exempt from drinking and driving laws? AND Long Beach is considering taking a $6.5MM bond to compensate contract.
jv December 06, 2013 at 09:28 PM
The "no regular hours of employment" is indeed in Mr. Tangney's contract. Drunk driving? I don't think so, and I find it hard to believe.
Penquin December 06, 2013 at 09:31 PM
Just sarcasm - no one would put that in a contract
Penquin December 07, 2013 at 08:31 PM
And I apologize for my sarcasm.
