Free Augie!

Most of you are aware of Augie Garrido's arrest for suspicion of driving while intoxicated last January.  Well it appears the judge in his case has ordered him to pay a $500 fine, go without a driver's license for 90 days, and spend four days in the pokey (two have already been commuted for time served). 

I'm sure Augie will find a way to turn this tough experience into a positive and use it as a teaching lesson for his players and others. It's not my place to judge him or use my admin privileges to legislate morality on this forum.

I will simply say, "people who drink out of glass containers should not throw stones and let he amongst us who hasn't driven impaired, cast the first one."

Hope none of us should ever find ourselves in the same predicament and we use this story as another sobering reminder never to drink and drive.  


PS. No word yet on whether or not Travis County will give him the Cedric Benson Suite (flat screen TV not included).
