then he deserves appropriate punishment. The "fact" that he blew a .12 means nothing until that result is verified and tested in court. Machines and people can and do produce incorrect results.
Assuming that he is guilty of a DUI, driving under the influence is not black and white. There are many many shades of gray, the question is degree of impairment and actual results from the action. If the coaches think that it is in the team's and FItz's best interests then he should be allowed to pratice with the team.
My personal opinion, based on what we know about the incident, is that, if found guilty of a DUI, Fitz should not be allowed to play for the first 2-3 games. That said, if the coaches make a different decision, I'll support it.
Magnus, the 11,000 deaths from "alcohol-related" accidents staistic is misleading. That includes any accident where there was any detectable level of alcohol in the blood at all, not just cases where the driver was actually impaired or had a BAC over .08. Driving while impaired, whether by acohol or drugs, is a serious issue, but we would do better to focus on impairment, not a number when drafting and enforcing such laws.
