Well, put us on the board in the Fulmer Cup. Andrew Quarless was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning.
Quarless, 19, of Uniondale, N.Y., was stopped at 2:54 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of East College Avenue and South Pugh Street when police said he ran a red light in a white BMW, according to the criminal complaint filed Thursday at the office of District Judge Jonathan Grine.
"Did I go through the red light?" police say Quarless asked the officer.
The complaint said the officer smelled a moderate odor of alcohol on Quarless and that the tight end failed field sobriety tests.
A blood test taken about a half hour later showed Quarless had a .084 BAC, the complaint states.
Quarless is charged with DUI, DUI as a minor, failing to obey traffic control signals and underage drinking.
I'm not exactly up on my Fulmer Cup scoring system. At most that's two points per charge for a total of eight points. Doesn't it seem like double jeopardy to charge him with DUI, underage drinking, and DUI as a minor? Shouldn't a DUI be a DUI? And isn't underage drinking underage drinking? Why make up this DUI as a minor charge? Is anyone ever going to get charged for DUI as a minor and not get charged for DUI and underage drinking? I love our legal system.
And what's the legal limit in PA now? I believe it's 0.06. So he was basically 0.024 above the legal limit. That's like a third of a can of beer. He couldn't stand on one foot and touch his nose? Weird. If you remember, in his first underage drinking incident I believe his BAC was below 0.1 as well after he said he had "just a few glasses of wine".
Does anyone else find the white BMW interesting? I'd be interested in seeing this thing. Is it a beat up 1995 model or are we talking a $50,000 vehicle?
UPDATE: FOS reports on the incident. Interesting tidbit about the white BMW.
This does not sound good to me. Maybe it's nothing. Who knows.
