Not all DUI busts are created equal.

Gary Rossington, one of the founding members of the band Lynyrd Skynyrd was arrested on DUI charges last month in Milton, Ga. Here are some of the highlights of the Sept. 9 arrest, dug up by The Smoking Gun website. These are direct quotes from Officer Alan Kelton:

-- "Mr. Rossington was very unsteady on his feet and almost fell over multiple times."
-- "I had Mr. Rossington sit in his vehicle so he would not fall."
-- "Mr. Rossington stated 'I know I am drunk , I do not want take the evaluations.'"

Rossington blew a .097 and .095 on the Georgia Intoxiliyzer 5000 (best Breathalyzer name ever). He was cited for DUI and released.

Gary....get your butt to AA and stay there or you'll end up like Leon Wlikerson, dead at 49 years old. Can't you guys ever learn from someone else's mistakes? All that boozin and druggin will land you all in the grave and you deprive the world of your musical gifts. Selfish Bastard

No matter how famous ya are, DWI is still a dangerous offense. I wouold suspect something else other than alcohol. Oficer probably was a fan, that may be why a blood test wasnt done. Gary still a great guitarist, and (old) Skynyrd still the best.
