Too Drunk To Drive?

BOSTON (AP) -- A Massachusetts state senator got a ride home from police after acquaintances said he was too drunk to drive - about 13 hours before he was involved in a hit-and-run accident.

A Cambridge, Mass., police report on Sen. Anthony Galluccio says officers were called to a gas station about 4:40 a.m. Oct. 4 after receiving a call about an intoxicated man.

The station attendant told police he believed Galluccio was too drunk to drive. Police say another man said he was trying to drive Galluccio home but couldn't find his house.

Police say they drove Galluccio home.

About 13 hours later, a vehicle driven by Galluccio rear-ended a minivan. Galluccio has said he fled because he panicked.

Galluccio declined to comment Monday, citing the ongoing legal process.

    My guess is that he and his family are totally disgraced and embarrassed. He got a ride home, and went right back out into 'public', as Ron White says in his comedy routine, except this is not at all funny.

    Had he killed someone, he might have a long political career.

    Ahh Ted Kennedy reborn? Don't worry he panicked, he wasn't drunk. All is well.
