Designated Driver Police near Carlisle, Pa., stopped a weaving car. When it pulled over, the man sitting in the driver’s seat, Lucas Enbacker, was eating a giant sandwich with both hands. The man sitting in the passenger’s seat, Derek R. Pittman, 26, told the officer sorry, but the weaving was his fault since he was steering while his buddy was eating. The officer gave Pittman a field sobriety test: He failed, and later his blood alcohol was measured at .237 percent, nearly triple the legal limit. Since he admitted he was in charge of the vehicle, Pittman was charged with driving under the influence. Enbacker, who passed his field sobriety test, was not charged. Prosecutors allowed Pittman to enter an “alternative rehabilitative disposition program” to avoid a criminal record. (Carlisle Sentinel, Harrisburg Patriot-News) ...Enbacker got off too easy: Every American should be capable of eating and talking on a cell phone while driving.
