We're also told Garrison struck a center median and lost control of his SUV in Beverly Hills and ended up hitting a tree.

I think the 15 year olds were in a separate car...

Never mind the "minors in the car" issue. This guy was apparently drunk or at least impaired. (We seem to get the story bit by bit) And according to the previous story post, he wasn't arrested OR booked! And someone died in this accident!
Why wasn't he arrested? Why wasn't he tested for alcohol on scene? Why wasn't he cited? If there is a more BLATANT case of celebrity favoritism than this, I want to know about it!

It's also been reported in an understated manner by the news media. So far.

"So-and-so was involved in a car crash last night. One person was killed.
In other news, PARIS HILTON...".

Don't let anyone tell you it doesn't pay to be a celebrity!

We, are not amused.    

Okay everybody pay attention...
Even minor celebrities can afford a good attorney. This drunken fool won't go to jail and it's too bad for the poor dead kid.

If my child were to have died in this crash, I'd make sure he never saw the light of day again.

Well, since he was not arrested at the scene, nor later, seems the negligent police failed to obtain a breath alcohol test, which make it impossible to prosecute a DUI, such a shame. The only hope is for the others in the vehicle to testify to the facts. Unfortunatly, he might only be charged with endangerment, or negligent homicide. Lets hope the survivors stand up for the deceased. My condolences to the family and friends.

lol @ all the e-lawyers up in here. The teens willingly got into a car with a drunk. I hope that's brought up while the police are eating their donuts.

I hope that this loser gets the same punishment as noncelebrities do. Fat jail time, big fines and shunned by society. I hope he gets what he deserves!

And a 17 year old is not a child. Anyone who thinks these moronic teens are entirely innocent are dumber than they are.

Driving drunk = Major Loser!

I hope they put him in jail until the 17 kid come back to life. Yes I know that's means never! So sad for this kid's family. I just can't believe people are so stupid.
