Brown is the college front man.

The president hides behind him!

He'll fit right in with all

He'll fit right in with all the other criminals at Paine.

The Augusta National isn't going to like it that he's wearing one of their shirts in his mug shot.

A bad decision many of us have made. He just got caught.

I'm sure he is a great guy and I'm truly sorry this happened to him. I bet many of you are being hypocritical.

Truth Matters, I have no

Truth Matters, I have no tolerance for drunk drivers, they are just a little bit of luck away from killing people, and yes, they are criminals.

Nor do I have any tolerance

Nor do I have any tolerance for drunk drivers. But to indict an entire school, students, faculty and staff because of this man's DUI is a bit much.

The only ones who haven't

The only ones who haven't been there are the ones that do not drink at all. Never been arrested but sure could have in my much younger days. Don't drink much now because it isn't worth it to feel bad or take the chance on getting caught.

Well who gets a DUI is

Well who gets a DUI is reported and if it is a public figure then an association is made. Like Rep Harbin, Julian Osborn's son, etc. just goes with the territory.
