    Brilliant. It's not like you needed a license to drive before anyway.

    Just be sure to give your RZ friends a heads up what part of town you are driving through.

    If you just avoid the bar scene, you probably won't run into me. Correction: I won't run into you.

    You realize it means nothing what he said on camera, correct?

    This thread should be blended with the things that make you laugh no matter what thread... and the things that drive you crazy, too.

    Why not? If it's on the record, it's on the record.

    Good luck with all that.

    And trust me, it'll probably annoy him enough to ask the judge for jail time on the case.

    Re: DUI Lawyers

    The stubbornness of people is truly stupefying.

    Go threaten the prosecutor and use your obvious legal expertise in-front of the judge. I'm sure he'll be impressed. Don't forget the part about how you plan to drive without a license anyway.

    You mean the person who deals with these cases, and likely much worse on a daily basis?

    The person who has no vested interest in whether you avoid jail time or not?

    You mean the person who received specialized legal training?

    You mean the person who is in court day in and day out?

    You are going to play hardball with them?

    Let us know when your court date is because I want to come and watch you go down in flames.

    C'mon folks. Go easy on him. It's obvious he has a lot on his plate. He hasn't ruled out hiring a lawyer; just not at this point.

    As for the jail time it relates directly to hiring a lawyer. If he was eligible for jail time he'd qualify for free legal defense.

    This guy is not flush with cash. He didn't even renew his driver's license because of cash flow. I have no problem with him talking to the prosecutor at this point. He can bring a lawyer in at anytime.

    The bottomline here is there is no good answer which is why I wish him the best...

    For the record, this isn't my first time in a courtroom. On three separate occasions, I have gone to court, represented myself, and won. I have never lost. Maybe I'm overconfident, but I don't think I'm clueless in a courtroom.

    Abe Lincoln was a white supremacist, so I don't really respect his point of view in every instance.

    My pre-trial date is on Monday. Any suggestions on what to wear? Judging by some of the posts in this thread, I think some of you are expecting me to show up with a pink mohawk.
