Getting A DWI Driving Home From A DWI Court Appearance Might Be The Lowest Of The Low
Drank – Authorities say a 44-year-old suburban Buffalo man was drunk when he drove away from a courthouse where he had just been convicted of driving while intoxicated.
The Erie County Sheriff’s Office says 44-year-old J.B. Silverthorn of Orchard Park was found guilty of a DWI charge Monday night in Grand Island Town Court. Silverthorn was charged after he crashed his car into the Niagara River on Dec. 29. He was rescued by firefighters.
Deputies say Silverthorn was drunk during Monday’s court appearance and told not to attempt to drive home.
Officers say Silverthorn then got into his car and pulled out of the parking lot before he was stopped by deputies.
Silverthorn was charged with felony DWI. He’s being held Friday in the Erie County jail. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
For someone with such a cool name, J.B. Silverthorn is not having the best week. Not only does he drive into a river, get rescued by firefighters and then get charged with a DWI, but he shows up to his court hearing drunk, then tries to drive home again. In J.B.’s defense, what kind of police officer tells a drunk guy in court for a DWI not to drive home? That’s what J.B. Silverthorn does. He drives drunk. It doesn’t matter if there’s a river in the way or if he’s at court. He’s going to drink and he’s going to drive around. I have to imagine showing up to a DWI court appearance drunk is against some kind of law, so they probably should have just arrested him right then and there. I feel bad for whoever this guy’s lawyer ends up being too. Kind of tough to defend a guy who shows up for a DWI court appearance and tries to drive home drunk.
Wisconsin Man Arrested For His 10th OWI Refuses to Run Out Of Excuses For His Alarming BAC
Fishey – A Friendship man is charged with his 10th OWI after a traffic stop in October. According to the Adams County Sheriff’s Department, John Przybyla, 75, was stopped Oct. 12 after a deputy noticed he crossed the center line and had a broken tail light.
According to the criminal complaint the deputy asked Przybyla how much he had to drink. Przybyla reportedly denied drinking alcohol but said he had eaten beer battered fish.
Przybyla was issued a breath alcohol test which showed a preliminary result of .062. Because of previous OWI convictions he cannot have PBT over .02.
Przybyla was brought to a nearby hospital for a legal blood draw.
He has previous conviction in Milwaukee, Adams, and Columbia counties dating back to 1995. In 2011, Przybyla was sentenced to one year in jail followed by five years extended supervision.
He was also charged with his third offense operating while revoked. He was also issued three traffic citations including open intoxicants.
John Przybyla refuses to go down without a fight, and for that I respect him. John Przybyla now has 10 alcohol related driving offenses, and for that I question his sanity. 10 is a high number for anything. If I were to tell you I ate 10 hamburgers yesterday you’d probably ask me if everything was OK at home. Getting pulled over 10 different times and being over the legal limit is nothing short of miraculous in the worst possible definition of that word. Let’s get back to the excuse: he ate beer battered fish. Now either this guy beer batters his fish with an entire 30 rack or he ate about 100 pieces of fish. Someone who has 10 alcohol related driving offenses strikes me as someone who really enjoys his alcohol, so I can’t imagine he’d waste more than a beer or two on batter. I also can’t imagine someone eating enough fish battered in beer to get their BAC up to .062, especially someone with the liver of a 10 time alcohol offender. I respect that John is 75 and still likes to get buzzed, but maybe stop driving forever and drink your beers from the comfort of your home while you yell at your TV. Also, if he doesn’t want us to think he’s drunk he should probably stop looking so hammered in his mug shots.
