thats pretty lame that the cops took him from his buddies house. I bet they told him he had to leave and he then resisted because that would have caused him to drive drunk.
Sometimes I think cops do certain things just to have the right to arrest you. i.E. in this case they were going to make this dude leave and drive away or stay and resist their orders. So either way the cops were giving him no options.
What really upsets me is that cops themselves often get extremely drunk and think they are above the law. My good friend recently got ran over while on a skidoo by an intoxicated off duty police officer. Two hours after the incident, the officer blew a .15 blood alcohol content (BAC). The legal limit for BAC is .08. So this guy must have been .20 when the incident happened.
