Drunk driver arrested after 'trying to take deer he hit with car to the emergency room'
UK Daily Mail ^ | 22nd December 2011 | Daily Mail

Posted on 12/22/2011 2:18:41 PM PST by iowamark

A driver under the influence of alcohol was charged after being stopped by police taking a deer that he had struck with his car to the nearby hospital.

Andrew Caswell, 29, hit the wild animal in the early hours of Monday, according to police.

Caswell and three companions argued over what to do with it before he decided the deer needed to go to the emergency room of a hospital in Greece, New York.

Residents who live near to the scene of the accident and had heard the men talking loudly, gave police a description of the vehicle.

An officer who later pulled the car over discovered the deer had been put in the trunk and had died.

When I read this story, my initial thought was "that's a nice guy."

A dangerous drunk, but a good-hearted dangerous drunk. I hope he gets sober.

So, I guess he wasn't the only drunk in the car. Maybe the deer could have been the designated driver.

I think that they are trying to point out that there are World-Class drunks in countries other than England.

I think I surfed through an early “Gray’s Anatomy” where a deer emergency was one of the story lines.

Good deed? Nice guy? Good at heart? Are you kidding me?

This excrement-for-brains got into his car and drove with a blood alcohol level of .16. He could have hit another car and injured or killed someone else and/or the three others in his car. Instead he hit a deer. All you Bambi lovers together now: AAAAWWWWW! There are too many deer out there committing suicide on cars already.

Mind you now, this designated drunk is nearly 30 years old, out with his pin head buddies getting wasted when he crumples his hood. And what does he do? He puts the deer in his trunk and drives to a hospital. Ever hear about the level of damage and injury a revived deer can do to a car and its occupants?

"Golly, he had good intentions..." no, he is an IDIOT! They do not treat animals at the Accident & Emergency center of a hospital. They treat the people he might have maimed if he had not hit the stupid ruminant.

Someone can call this dangerous moron good hearted, or a nice guy or whatever. The label I use for this level of stupid is: Obama Voter.

That is the MailOnline, and it's based here in the United States, or so my browser's Flag Add-on says. They do report on American stories, usually.

Not far from where I came across a deer accident, and moved the vehicle for the distraught driver. Noting two hooves sticking up in the back seat, the driver asked if the deer would be ok, if it would make it. “No.” “Are you sure?” “The other half is in the ditch down the street.”
