I think in the past police were too lenient on DUI. I don't have a problem with police arresting some for DUI if they were actually driving. The problem I have is with police charging someone with DUI because they were passed out in a car that is parked and turned off. I have a problem with that.During most of my time on the job, our town PD's position was to be extremely lenient on DUI and in fact let folks sleep it off in their cars.
In more recent times, I became aware of the issues discussed in this thread and I vehemently disagree with charging someone not driving but sleeping it off in their car with DUI just because they are in a vehicle and possess keys. I am glad to no longer wear a badge!!!!!
