  1. Addiction is a horrible thing. Twenty-eight years… He’ll probably lose everything – pension, etc. He should be thankful that he didn’t cause any injuries, or worst.

  2. 28 years on the job, how many of them while on the job? Any tickets, traffic stops, arrest, may all be compromised now as a result.
    I hope the person who he hit doesn’t get run around.
