Persistent DWI offender charged in Lincoln County, Missouri, Previous charges include Manslaughter.

A man who was high on pot when he killed a popular youth minister and his young son in a wreck in 1997 will be back in court Thursday facing new drunken driving charges.

The defendant, now 34, was charged as a chronic DWI offender earlier this year after a police officer saw him crash into a large rock and sign near a Winfield gas station, then drive off. Police said he was under the influence of alcohol and methamphetamine at the time.

He was charged as a persistent DWI offender and with three misdemeanors — operating a motor vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner, operating a vehicle without maintaining financial responsibility and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident.

He currently is free after posting $20,000 bail.

Why isn’t anyone taking about Hope Solo’s domestic violence case?

Domestic Assault

While U.S. Soccer doesn’t have the same high profile as the NFL, how do the cases differ? Aren’t women’s soccer players just as much role models as male football players? The goalkeeping record is an important one, both for Solo and for women’s soccer, but does it really trump an accusation of domestic violence? Why is the notion of awaiting due process so inconsistently applied? And why aren’t more people talking about the fact that domestic violence isn’t simply an issue of men against women?

Cleveland Browns Josh Gordon pleads guilty to DWI

Josh Gordon pleads guilty to DWI
The charge against the Cleveland Browns wide receiver has been pending since July.

In lieu of a 60-day suspended jail sentence, Gordon received 12 months’ unsupervised probation, a $100 fine and $290 in court costs as a result of the plea, according to the Wake County Clerk of Courts office. He also had his driver’s license suspended.

A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder that Gordon pleaded guilty Tuesday in the hopes he can avoid a mandatory two-game suspension, which is one of the new rules that would be enacted when the NFL and NFLPA formalize a new drug policy, something that could happen any day.
