• “Drunk” Shirt Man Arrested…for Being Drunk, of Course

    If the shirt fits...


    Meet 21-year-old Ross McMakin of Corvallis, Oregon. Can you guess what he just got arrested for?

    Yep, this past weekend, he imbibed just a tad too much. According to KEZI:

    Corvallis Police say McMakin’s girlfriend told him not to drive after he had consumed alcohol on Sunday. She agreed to drive, but his car was a stick shift. Police say she was unable to drive the car, so he got behind the wheel. She says he drove on the sidewalk, hit a parked car, and drove in the wrong lane. After he parked, police say she took his keys and told him that he wasn’t allowed to drive. Police say McMakin got upset, threw her down and choked her. They say he got back in his car, his girlfriend called police, and officers stopped him in traffic. McMakin is facing multiple charges including strangulation, DUII, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, and harassment.

    So, there you have it. A true study in courage. I only wish all boneheads would follow Ross’s lead and display their vices like a Scarlet Letter, so that we might identify them without question. Though, call me crazy, but something tells me we wouldn’t have really needed the “Drunk as S***” shirt to help us figure this winner out.
