Police in Navato, CA will be holding a checkpoint Friday night in honor of Melodie Osheroff, a woman who was killed by a drunken motorcyclist in 2009. Although checkpoints encourage safety and help decrease traffic accidents, is this the best way to honor someone? Does it seem as if police are exploiting Osheroff’s tragedy to nab drivers?
In an accident that made national news, a Chicago caretaker is being honored with saving the life of a toddler in Saturday’s Gold Coast DUI accident. The toddler’s nanny was able to shove the stroller out of the way just the driver plowed his truck over a curb. Although the caretaker did get injured, the toddler suffered only minor injuries and should be okay.
Jalen Rose, former Michigan star and NBA player, pleaded guilty today to a DUI. Most shocking was that Rose admitted that he had six (six!) martinis that night, plus road conditions were terrible due to snow. Rose is very lucky to have come out of that accident alive. He’ll be sentenced in July where he most likely will face some time in jail.
