Alleged Drunk Driver Beaten Unconscious After Crashing Into Party
KOMO News ^ | Jul 15, 2013

Posted on 07/15/2013 2:30:55 PM PDT by nickcarraway

An alleged drunk driver who careened into a Spanaway home full of late-night partygoers Sunday night was beaten unconscious by some who were none too happy the man had just crashed their party.

Pierce County Sheriff's deputies received a report of a possible drunk driver in the area of Military Road East and 13th Avenue Court East just after 11 p.m., said sheriff's spokesperson Det. Ed Troyer. The driver ultimately blew through a intersection at Military and B Street, then drove straight through a wooden fence and collided with the front porch of a home in the 15100 block of 2nd Avenue East, Troyer said.

"Some of the partygoers, who had also been drinking, promptly got down, took the driver out of the car, assaulted him and gave him a pretty good beating," Troyer said.

Deputies arrived, found the driver unconscious next to the car and told the partygoers to step back, but several in the group refused to comply and charged the deputies, Troyer said.

"We arrived and almost had a mini-riot, and had to pepper spray to clear the crowd," Troyer said.

The deputies used an entire can of pepper spray to get the crowd to move back, then arrested two men for investigation of assault on the driver. Meanwhile, the driver was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital for treatment of his injuries and will be arrested for investigation of DUI, Troyer said.

Troyer says in those situations, it's best to leave the justice to law enforcement.

"The partygoers that were drinking should have called the police and stayed out of it instead of involving themselves," Troyer said. "And now they've got a couple of their own people arrested for assault."

Beating the guy unconscious was probably over the line.

What was the racial makeup of the driver, vs the crowd? Maybe the driver was a creepy a$$ cracker.

He got off easy. Most of the beaters were probably partly drunk.

0bangles, Holder and Je$$e Jerkson have made that acceptable for all occasions. Let the beatings commence!

I prefer beatings just shy of consciousness or within inches of life. Vigilante justice is swift. Since we’re not that much of a country of laws any longer I say dish out justice whenever.

But he didn’t. After the car has stopped and he is no longer a threat, you can’t just take the law in your own hands.

Beat him in such a way that it appears to be part of the accident.

My guess is that the party goers would have reacted the same way if a heart attack had caused the accident. Here is a lovely example of the way Holder's people react to a traffic accident involving a pededstrian crossing against the signal in LA.

Hey, Sg. Good to see ya! Yeah, I think that's the official unofficial motto of many divisions. I know it was, in mine when I was on active duty. :)

Unfortunately, he was probably already "feeling no pain".

Tie him up, sober him up, and then beat the hell out of him!

I remember the story of a rather grizzled biker who arrived at the scene of a two car collision in a rural area. One car had a woman and young child, both dead. The other had a man reeking of liquor who was injured with a part of his skull missing, but still alive. Empty bottles littered his car. He had crossed the line and hit the other car head on.

The biker pondered the situation, then inserted a finger into the brain of the drunk, and dug around until he died. He washed off his hand, and drove away.
