You know, he must have refused a breathalyzer? Everyone I know of spends the night at least in jail after either refusing a breathalyzer or taking one and failing if the signs of alcohol were there which they were in this case. It makes no difference that the hospital BAC test has to be waited for as they already had cause for all of it.
From this article:
A search warrant application states that Ariel's mother told police "as she crawled from her Chevy Traverse, she observed Reid standing looking at the vehicles and talking on his cellphone," the Star reports.
She then "pled" with Reid to call 911 since she lost her phone in the crash, according to the court documents.
Judgmental maybe but what? Why was he not checking to see who was inside and rushing to see if help was needed?? Would that not be the normal human response?? I have been in accidents and it is the first thing that comes out of my mouth to total strangers even if apparently all right. Are you all right? Are you all right? Are you sure? And the same generally in return.
Much remains to be seen I realize, and I am not throwing him under the bus yet but I just hope it is handled as all cases would be. People are really fed up in this nation with special breaks for certain types. Not saying it is the case here yet but I think we all know of many such things. It will be interesting to see who he immediately contacted after the crash.
