As Dumb As It Gets - Washington State Man Gets 3 DUIs At Once

Blaine is a little backwater town on the Washington side of the Peace Arch border crossing.  It's where Tommy Ryser lives and, until recently, drove.

On Monday night, Ryser was driving his pickup truck when he ran it into a utility pole.   He left on foot.   Police were investigating when they got word of another vehicle, a VW Golf, that had also been crashed and abandoned.   When they got there they found that the VW was registered to the same family as the crashed pickup.

While at the scene of the VW crash, Tommy Ryser shows up driving his tow truck to retrieve the Golf.    Apparently Ryser was still pretty inebriated and admitted to the cops that he'd been behind the wheel when the pickup and the VW were crashed.

Ryser was whisked off to the local jail, given a breathalyzer test and charged with three counts of driving under the influence.   That's gotta be some kind of record.

Tell me he wasn't on his way home from a Tea Party meeting!

I kind of hate to admit this but that same thought crossed my mind.
