I understand he broke the law
No, at this point he is accused of having broken the law.
Folks, a little perspective here--drinking and driving can have horrendous consequences so obviously it should be discouraged, but before you step up to the plate to swing away at him, be honest--everyone sees hundreds of people in their lives that could be DWI, do you step up and talk to them to stop them from harming themselves and others before they drive or just criticize people afterwards. Driving after drinking is so endemic because the vast majority of people waive goodbye to their potentially drunk friends and acquaintances and turn to their significant other and say, boy sure hope he makes it home safe. Don't complain at athletes/stars on the internet because they make money, show your disapproval to the people you meet in everyday life before they drive.
