Who NOT to Call from Jail

. Monday, October 19


You know how it goes. You go out to a few bars with friends, tie on a good one, and three sheets to the wind later, you’re climbing behind the wheel of your car to head home. In no time at all, you see flashing lights in your rear view mirror, you fail the sobriety test and the next thing you know, the officer has his hand on your head, guiding it safely into the back seat of his cruiser. Well, maybe you don’t know how it goes. I don’t either, but I saw it on TV.

Next thing you know, you’re at the police station, ticketed and told when to show up to court. And, there’s the door. Only, your car is still out on the highway and you are miles away. What do you do? You call your friend, the only one that will answer the phone at 2:00 a.m.

That’s about what happened in upstate NY last night. All’s well that ends well, right? Not quite. Stacy Kolinski, 22, showed up at the police station to pick up George Reddick, her drunken friend – with a blood alcohol level of .20, more than twice the legal limit. Kolinski was charged with aggravated DWI and also given a summons to appear in court.

Yep, that’s a match made in heaven…
