McNair arrested

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Steve McNair was charged with driving under the influence last week even though police said his brother-in-law was behind the wheel of the pickup registered to the former Tennessee Titan. Although McNair was just a passenger, he was charged with a misdemeanor under a Tennessee law that prohibits a vehicle owner from letting it be driven by someone who is inebriated. The driver, 31-year-old Jamie Cartwright, smelled of alcohol, failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a breath alcohol test, police said.

Why would you let a drunk drive your car in the first place? That is unless you were paranoid that Ray Lewis had a hit out on you for not leading the team the Super Bowl. In which case, having a decoy behind the wheel is genius. Riding shotgun with a drunken driver is better then seeing Lewis's limo pull-up beside the driver's side of your ride with a red laser pointed at your temple.
