Default today's WTH .... drunk driving at a whole new level

Drunk father arrested while driving on Laguna Seca Raceway
Posted Oct 23rd 2007 1:56PM by John Neff
Filed under: Motorsports, Etc.

When pulled over while under the influence and driving his 1980 Porsche on Laguna Seca Raceway last Sunday around 5:20 PM, John Patrick Krukar told police that he was lost and trying to find his hotel. Well seriously, what would you say? The situation is actually more serious than it sounds, as authorities found Krukar's 5-month-old son riding shotgun in the car with him. The intoxicated man had reportedly reached speeds of up to 90 mph on the track, which had just seen a big weekend of racing including the final round of the 2007 ALMS Series. Krukar, however, is no Dindo Capello. Local police actually implied that this type of thing has happened before, Laguna Seca being so large and apparently difficult to lock down. They booked Krukar on driving under the influence with the added bonus penalty of having a child under 14 in the car at the time. His son was also taken into Child Protective Services, which sounds like the best thing for this involuntary co-driver.

Even though I know it's completely wrong, I'm confused. How can anyone receive a DWI for driving on PRIVATE property? Luke, have a link?

Could he fight the DUI part, claiming he was not on a public road at the time?

While at once tragically stupid, it's pretty funny. They apparently clocked him, so were they pacing him or using a stopwatch?

How many entrances are there to the track? I mean it's not like you simply make a wrong turn and wind up on the course

Ok.... I stumble out of a bar, locate my jeep, climb in and fire it up right in front of a cop. Even though I'm still on private property (parking lot) they got me. Drunk driving is drunk driving..

So...onto the real WTH...money says the fella is back on the road inside 30 days. Illegally or not, he will be driving. Hopefully not with his child.

People like that should be freakin ankled up like on home arrest. You get in a car, it senses the EM from the engine, gives you a moment to exit and if not, BOOM off goes your foot/ankle. I believe that would encourage quite a few people to stop acting like actions don't have repercussions. Ride the bus you worthless piece of trash.

speeding isnt criminal traffic, and the state has no say of what the speed limit is on private property.

and how is it reckless endangerment? everyone on the track knows the risks and is willingly there knowing of those risks and what can happen

Exactly, most states have changed the law to get around this loophole.

The thing is that he had to drive on public roads to get there, when he leaves, he will have to drive on public road. Unless he had a trailer there and someone to drive it, he has no recourse. Plus having a child without protective equipment, no judge is gonna let that slide.

Objection!

The prosecution has failed to prove that the defendant was under the influence before he arrived at the race track.
