    His namesake has been convicted several times for SUIL. (Sleeping Under the Influence of Lasagna) Seriously, who was the prosecutor in this case and which county was the original charges filed?

    He will get away with all of this becuase of who he is. This is not right he is no better than anyone else and he should be treated the same.
