Here's an interesting lawsuit... which I hope he wins:
Why shouldn't you be allowed to be drunk in private? One more case of the nanny state at work. He wasn't going to drive, he just wanted to get drunk. The officers allege that they investigated the party after bottles had been thrown at the squad car, but then they couldn't prove it. So it sounds like they just arrested this guy out of spite. Sounds like a simple abuse of power to me. They then claim he was being beligerent. Wouldn't you be beligerent if someone wanted to haul your ass to jail for doing nothing wrong, especially after drinking? I sure as hell would be. That's not a crime.
What's next? Cops being able to arrest a smoker in his home because he presents a danger of giving himself lung cancer? If my home is my castle... maybe it's time for me to build a moat... with big fucking aligators... and a draw bridge.
