This Is Not How You're Supposed to Fly Out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport
Dallas Observer ^ | Jun. 2, 2010 | Robert Wilonsky

Posted on 06/03/2010 10:05:18 AM PDT by txlurker

A good Friend of Unfair Park, through a friend of a friend of a friend, just shot us this extraordinary video captured early yesterday morning at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Took place at the north toll plaza, which served as a launching ramp for one drunk driver trying to exit the airport in a hurry. DFW spokesman David Magana confirms: "The driver was, as you might guess, suspected of inebriation and investigated for such and arrested for such."

I have so many questions, like, why is there a ramp there?

Looks like his car got bent on the takeoff.

The landing? Who knows, but probably not something to take on a long trip.

DFW makes you want to do that. I feel for the guy. And I guarantee that they will get the airport toll out of him.

Will you post the pic of the driver? She looks like a winner. And I think most of you guys will say she is guilty.

She was not DRUNK! She was battling those Men-In-Black! Her name was Brucine Willdeness and she saved all the quarters in the toll booths!

I think her actions were Kool! (the Kool Beer)

They are there to redirect speeding and crashing cars through the toll lanes rather than through the booths where people are.

Straight out of “Live Free or Die Hard”. Except Bruce Willis character jumped from the car before it hit the ramp. Took out a helicopter BTW.

Yes they are.

Tats are an all or nothing proposition anyway, and only justified if one is a Cossack, Scythian warlord, yakuza, ca. 1930s sailor, or Russian convict.

I hate tho think how this rash of tattoos will look in 40 years. It really makes my brain cringe.

Hispanic/Latin/Levantine = white in officialese.

Greater Caucasian (Turks, Magyars, Semites, Uzbeks etc. etc.) - not necessarily northern European.

Hispanics are often listed as white on police reports. They would really hate to let you in on the real numbers.

She’s tattooed, she’s ugly, she’s guilty.

It’s a miracle she didn’t take out the toll booth and kill or injure the toll collector.

Anybody guess how fast she was going?
