Was it his first offense? Does this mean that all DWI incidents result in jail time for the first offense in Texas?

I believe it was a first offense, however, Coleman asked for the jail time instead of probation.

I would feel the same even if it was Tom Brady!

Exclamation Is it me or....

Does it look like Coleman is not showing any remorse? He doesn't think he has done anything wrong



http://www.click2houston.com/sports/3577385/detail.html


1.Why is he smiling coming out of Court?
2.He didn't take the Breath test at the scene
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Back in May, an officer responded to a traffic hazard and found Coleman's vehicle damaged and partially on a curb within a lane of traffic. He was offered a breath test after a DWI task unit was called to the scene, but refused.

At the trial, a police video showed Coleman stumble when asked to walk a straight line and he lost his balance when asked to stand on one leg.

Coleman claimed at the trial that he wasn't intoxicated, blaming the crash on a distraction while adjusting the car radio.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
He claims he wasn't intoxicated why not take the Breath Test?
3.He refused Community Service for jail time
Rather sit in jail then help inner city youth.
4. Never apologize to the judge for his actions! After being found guilty!
If this is a so-called mistake shouldn't you be man about it and admit it not deny it? People on here show more remorse than he does!
Coleman is not acting like it is a mistake!

By the way remember this:

http://www.click2houston.com/sports/2641246/detail.html

Wonder what he did? He is a season veteran not a rookie. Looks like he is not dedicated on being a TEXAN! Tell you what if Jammal Lord does well in camp.Don't be surprised for the Texans to move him! Texans are a top notch Organization. They want Model Citizens not just Football Players! Aaron Glenn now that is a Model Citizen and Consummate Player!

He got in a fender bender while drinking and driving. Why crucify the guy? Makes zero sense to me. I have made mistakes in my past and I can smile today, why can't Marcus?

I think it is silly to dog a man who is standing up and taking his punishment. He isn't whining about it. He is just dealing with it. Get over it.

To me the picture of Coleman smiling looked grainy and was from a possibly TV interview. So you don't know when it was taken or what circumstances(as in a question asked of him).. I am sure he didn't come out of the courtroom high fiving and leading the wave in their either..

As far as taking 3 days in jail over community service..none of us know why he did that. I don't know.. I wasn't there.. I don't know how that works, it could be possible that taken 6 months of community service would have interfered with the work schedule who knows..

Although I am pretty harsh on guys like this, In this case I think it's enough by having it thrown into the spotlight, being embarrassed while it's thrown onto every media outlet, spending 3 days in jail, and having your license suspended for a year. Imagine. "Welcome to the 5:00 news, this just in, Vinny (of course they would use your full real name) from the Houston Texans message boards has been arrested tonight and charged with public intoxication while raming his Yugo into a PortaPotty on the side of a road."

How would you feel?

His lawyer said he requested jail time so that he could be done with this quickly and put it behind him.

with doing the jail time it gets all his punishment behind him so he can focus on work...smart and selfless thing if you ask me...put yourself in jail so you don't hold back your teammates

Maybe because he could have killed someone. IE. Leonard Little.

It is a first offense. Lets hope he learns from this mistake and lives his life with a little more responsibility.

Also lets be glad he is being a man about it and doing jail time so he can focus on football this season. Not picking up trash on the weekends.

crucify him...are you joking...come on guys we went through this when this thing happened...it's like you guys hold everyone so high that you forget people are human...especially yourselves...people make mistakes...people learn from them...be a grone up about it and stop throwing it back into their face...but hey if you wanna look down at someone who had too much to drink and drove home hit a tree not a person and is being a man about it and taking the jail time...then fine...but this should be a dead issue...look around the league there are several players being arrested for dui and very few getting punished for it...steve mcnair was cleared of it but he was just as guilty as coleman...the reason...he's the QB and not some DB...anyways...this is a touchy issue for a lot of people i just find it funny that people get so bent out of shape over it

I agree, I dont like to live with "what if" people. But sometimes you have to say what if. Like with Drinking and Driving. This is a serious thing. People die all the time from this.

But I agree, I like him doing jail, not probation. Lets move on
