3 Offenders Show Up Drunk to DWI Victim Panel, Police Say

Three New Yorkers convicted of alcohol-related driving offenses showed up to their court-mandated panel to hear from DWI victims drunk, police said.

"Occasionally, we'll have someone show up drunk, but that was offensive," Larry Waimon, whose father and grandmother were killed by drunken drivers, told the Post-Star. "They're not ready to listen. The judges should lock them up."

All three had a blood alcohol content of just under 0.22 percent, Glens Falls Police Sgt. John Winchell told the newspaper. In New York a person is considered legally drunk if their BAC is 0.08 percent.

Police give breath tests to anyone who is suspected of being drunk prior to the panel, the Post-Star reported.
