Father Knows Best. [Update – Drunk Math Doesn’t Work]

This can't seriously be his mugshot?

This can't seriously be his mugshot? Oh, yes it can. From PhillyBurbs.com

If you’re going to drive, don’t drink.

And if you’ve already drinking, please don’t drive.

Especially if you’re drunk driving to the police station to pick up your son – who’d been picked up for DUI only hours earlier.

From PhillyBurbs:

Altoona police charged 44-year-old David C. Peterson Sr. of Bellwood with DUI after he reportedly failed field sobriety tests inside the police station where he had come to pick up his son, 24-year-old David C. Peterson Jr., who police said had been arrested for DUI himself.

The Altoona Mirror reports that a PennDOT truck driver had spotted the son allegedly slumped over in his 1998 Ford Taurus on Sabbath Rest Road early Jan. 20.


When the father arrived at 3:38 a.m. to pick up his son from the police station, an officer reported that he noticed dad Peterson’s breath smelled of booze. After failing several field sobriety tests, Peterson Sr. also failed a preliminary breath test and was taken for a blood test.

Peterson Sr. had a blood-alcohol content of 0.124 percent, and his son’s blood-alcohol content was 0.161 percent, authorities said.

Cops says both father and son were also driving vehicles with expired registrations and inspections.

UPDATE: Saw this excellent article today in the WSJ that seems especially apropos. Drunk Math doesn’t work.
