Once again, a word in GP's defense.1: His blood alochol was at .08, which is just at the legal limit. The police have stated that because his BAC was so close to the limit, they likely won't even charge him with a DUI. He had 2 drinks at dinner, then drove home. Does that sound like a drunken fool?2: He had just entered the freeway on-ramp, at which time he saw that traffic was at a complete standstill. It was 1:15am, and he figured that since traffic on the sidestreets was so quiet, he could just back up and go another way home. If you've ever driven on an LA or SD freeway, you know what it's like when it's blocked. You don't move. Period. Again, not a big deal. Unlike Ellis, who drove the wrong way on an on-ramp and then smashed his car into a barrier, Payton was just trying to turn around.In sum, GP did something that every smartass talk-radio that is criticizing him today has done at least 5 times in his lifetime. For God sakes, the man had 2 drinks with dinner then drove home. Let's not bury the guy.
