And here he is asleep behind the wheel of his car at or about 3:00 am.
CHiP’s (California Highway Patrol) Officers found George sound asleep / passed out in the driver’s seat behind the wheel of a car with his foot on the brake on a San Diego freeway. Officers woke George after knocking on the window several times and shining a flashlight in his face. After taking, and reportedly failing, field sobriety tests, George was arrested for DUI.
Memo to the Folks: It is tough enough to defend against DUI cases (especially when you are passed out drunk in the middle of the roadway and then you fail FST’s which, btw, and although the cops don’t have to and won’t tell you – not in FL anyhow – that you do not have to perform – see the below HaberPA YouTube Webisode / VideoFAQ on FST’s) but compounding the task with admissions of guilt is just plain self-destructive.
In this case George foolishly took to Facebook after his arrest, literally apologizing for his actions (you can read his Facebook admission below) and bellyaching about his arrest (which is a matter of public record) being published by local news media…
Memo to the Folks continued: Anything that you post on social media can and will be used against you in a court of law. As a standard condition of all of HaberPA’s retainer agreements the following language is included:
Client understands that any statements that she makes about or relative to the Case are subject to being admitted into evidence against her interests in the Case. Client expressly understands that such statements are not limited to those which may be verbally made and include any and all social media posts, comments, discussions, pictures, illustrations or representations, most specifically those made by Client but also those by others which may include Client.
