Q    

Is that why Natalie is looking to haggard lately and not willing to tour again with her bandmates? Married to the likes of this drunk who is a menance to the innocent? Drunk driving isnt cool anymore dude, its like committing murder without the intent, but its still murder. maybe Natalie can write a song about it. She looks miserable lately---probably depressed over your drinking...clean it up, you're dangerous to the innocent.

Does it ever enter what passes for his mind, that he could have taken some lives with that deadly weapon he's driving?

In 2010, with all the zillions of DUI incidents for examples, he hasn't learned a damn thing?

Has he ever heard the phrase: "Designated Driver"?

One could go on and on!

He is a known partying boozer, never met a drink he did not like and this is among friends, coworkers etc. It is NOT the first time he has driven around in this condition again known to the people above. He will have to kill or maim someone for non tm zrs to pay attention, or kill himself to get the tragic rising star garbage they do one of theirs goes down while they watch.
If he injures or kills someone it is on all that work with him and know him as we know a few good leaks drives them all into some rehab to save face and possibly lives.

My 20 year old son, along with the young mother of baby boy, was killed by a drunk driver going 90 mph. Mr. Pasdar, give me a few minutes of your time, I'll tell you what it is like to be a grieving mother!

Many years ago, when I first started college, this drunk driver hit us head on. He was on the wrong side of the road. My best friend was killed, my other friend and I ended up with serious injuries, and was hospitalized for 6 weeks. A day never goes by when I don't think about my friend. Wise up, Adrian Pasdar! Brought back memories when reading about this jerk! Never mind the celebrity treatment, hope he gets to serve time in jail!!!
