Al wasn't driving. It's No big deal. He's an idiot, but he was just a passenger. That's why the driver was arrested. Lots of people speed to get to the airport. I've probably clocked close to that once or twice going to an airport.
The driver was being told to continue, and he paid the price.
granted, your reply is a bit off the wall......However, I DO agree Rev. Al was not drive the car. Sort of like the military, You take the chiefs orders but the bottom line is you did the behaviour.
Ig it were up to me, I'd drive Ronald McDonald around town.....MUCH more handsome, and more of a message :)
I'm no lawyer, but I don't see the high-powered party, (Sharpton), being chauffered 'in a hurry' to the airport as having clean hands in this affair.
If the driver happened to be Sharpton's chauffer or employee, he could be considered an "agent" for Sharpton and if he were taking orders, that could make the good reverend an accessory. Personally, I hope this is the case.
Eluding the cops in Texas is a felony.
