Boyz on da Hood

Remember that Portland area drunk driver who, in a rage, ran down a cyclist earlier this year and then drove around a bit with the cyclist still on the hood of his car? (The cyclist is ok)

Well, according to this article from today, he was sentenced to 45 days in jail, three years of probation and 160 hours of community service. He has already served 19 days in jail and also faces a mental health evaluation, drug and alcohol abuse evaluation and an $800 fine he must pay the cyclist due to lost work.

45 days.

The motorist intentionally hit the cyclist, then drove at high speeds, went fast around corners, jammed the breaks, and swore at the cyclist, all while he was holding on for dear life (literally) to the hood of this guy's car.

45 days.

i guess when you assault someone with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, it is best to be drunk. also it helps if the victim is angry at you.
just don't try to kill nice people while sober. that might land you in the hoosegow for a good year or so.
