MLive has an ARTICLE giving further details on Graham Glasgow's Ides of March DUI arrest. According to the report, he had a 0.13% BAC, and claimed that he had had 5 Natty Lights that evening.
Glasgow, 21 of Ann Arbor, was driving a white Chevrolet Suburban SUV on William when Officer Pat Maguire observed a woman, Alexa Dannemiller, hanging out of the front passenger window.
“As the vehicle turned, Maguire saw that there was a white female hanging from the front passenger side window,” the report stated. “She was sitting on the lap of another passenger who was in the same seat.”
Dannemiller, a Univeristy of Michigan volleyball player, was screaming at pedestrians and not wearing a seatbelt so Maguire began following the vehicle, according to the report.
He said the rear tailgate to the SUV was open and, as Glasgow continued driving, it started to open more and more with items coming out of the trunk. Eventually, the falling items started to obscure the license plate and Maguire initiated a traffic stop.
Needless to say, 0.13% BAC (i) raises a serious safety issue, and (ii) probably takes someone Glasgow's size more than five Natty Lights to achieve (although he would not be the first or the last to fib about how many drinks he had when pulled over on a night out). I'm in the camp that believes that drinking and driving is very serious, but also recognize that college kids do such things. It's probably worth noting that with the rolling party going on in the SUV Glasgow was driving, it seems like a blessing in disguise that the police intervened before anyone got hurt. One incident doesn't make a pattern, but I hope Glasgow uses this as a wake-up call and never gets behind the wheel again impaired. (All of this assumes the police report is accurate, of course.)
I suspect Glasgow will get typical first offender punishments from the judge after pleaing the case out, based on his lawyer's assertion that he expects this to be resolved quickly. And I'm sure that the dorm viking crowd will be appalled at whatever punishments the Michigan staff doles out (IIRC, it stands now at some Spring Practice suspension and missing Appy State).
