    Exactly. That's why the media makes an issue to point out salary. Oh and the fact he was buying lottery tickets.

    LOL. So a rookie making $470,000 can't afford a taxi?

    Both should get a taxi.

    We all mistakes. Some of them result in getting arrested. I hope he gets the help he needs and learns from it.

    He should hire Ryan Braun to handle his defense.

    Both can afford to hire a full-time designated limo driver. It's the lotto tickets that made me giggle.

    The argument in that case will be that the cheeseburgers were mishandled by the cop who booked him.

    It doesn't matter how much money you make, a drunk is incapable of making good decisions.

    You could say the same about a lot of sober people.

    Are we to be more upset at a veteran making lots of money or a rookie who isn't making that much? Or why does it matter.

    To me, some DUI's are serious, and I've known people who have gotten questionable ones. I think the limit should be raised a little. I know a petite adult woman who drank one beer and blew right at the limit, which I find ridiculous.
    I think they revealed how much money he has made over his career because dude got busted for DUI for making a run to the gas station at 2:30 in the morning to (and here's the funny part) buy lottery tickets.

    Wow Helton looks like he might give Mongo McMichael a run for most weight gained since retirement.
