There's No "I Was Watching the Texans" Defense to DWI

If you feel like the Houston Texans are driving you to drink - and drive- you should be aware that is no defense in Court. While police, prosecutors, and potential jurors may feel sympathetic to your predicament, the Texas Penal Code is not.

Drowning your sorrows in suds may seem like the natural thing to do at your family game watching party or local watering hole. You'll certainly not be alone as misery loves company. Just ask old Oiler fans, we know. But when imbibing crosses the line to intoxication its best to play it safe and take a knee and a cab. If you don't, you're likely to be intercepted by the police. They're better on game days at intercepting Texan fans than opposing defenses are at picking off Matt Schaub passes.

If that happens, you may be looking at spending the equivalent of a pair of season tickets to defend your DWI case. The most commonly disputed issues in a DWI case are the basis for the stop and whether the driver was intoxicated. If, like Bernie Kosar, you refuse to play the game, Houston area law enforcement routinely obtain warrants for blood. In either event, blood and breath tests are frequently inacurate. Moreover, if a pro bowl athlete like Bernie Kosar won't attempt field sobriety tests, why would you?

DWI can happen to any fan, and does. Area law enforcement target fans leaving stadiums and bars in the hours after big sporting events. Be safe, drive sober, or get a ride from at teammate who is.
