It is funny watching this. I really am suprised the NFL Oklahoma team fans aren't jumping on this to get some payback I am kidding of course.

Bottom line is this.. He made a mistake and Luckily noone was hurt. Coleman doesn't walk on water.. Heck even Steve McNair last year drank a little much. Many of us have drank a little much.

I think the problem with this is when people read "arested for DWI" the 1st thought is a person that is so drunk they can't walk and are stumbling all over. Sometimes that is the case and sometimes it isn't ..
State may prove intoxication in three (3) different ways:
- not having the normal use of physical faculties OR
- not having the normal use of mental faculties OR
- having an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more.

Basically what that says is .08 is no doubt the line of charged with intoxication... I am sure you have seen some people drink one or 2 beers that have never really drank before.. well that is another way of DWI without the .08 boundary.. esp if you wreck or do something stupid..basically is that you can have lower than a .08 and still get a DWi.. (in general, and not saying Coleman was or wasn't lower than .08)

I read that Coleman didn't take the breath analyzer.. big whoop... almost everbody bypasses that if they think they are over .08 or have any doubts in their mind that they might be close. And if many of yall where in that situation.. you'd probably risk that too and get your "driving pass"

I am not defending Coleman, but some people seem to swing to the left and others to the right on the issue. And basically we don't know all the facts of the case or seen the tape of him that night.

All I know is that he drank and wrecked..Cops came and smelled alcohol on his breath... who knows after that.. heck all the wrecks I had.. no drop of alcohol here
