"shortly after 11 a.m."
Suggests a bigger problem than a DUI
Driving Unser the Influence.
It's not the first time for him either. The last time it was domestic abuse and drugs. The IRL needs to adopt the NASCAR stance on this sort of thing.
Al Unser Jr. must be feeling the same way right about now.
How fast was he going? ROFL
So much for rehab.
wasn't he picked up for this about 6 months ago or so???
If Al Unser Jr. couldn't outrun the cops, no one can!
The Unser boys are plain hellions, livin' on the edge. Wild men. Al Jr. isn't the only one in trouble with the law....
Honea said Unser failed several field sobriety tests before being taken into custody. Unser was charged with driving under the influence, misdemeanor hit and run, failure to render aid in an accident and failure to report an accident.
Unser also has had bouts with alcohol abuse and depression. He underwent treatment for alcohol abuse in 2002 after his girlfriend said he hit her in the face while drunk in Indianapolis. Prosecutors did not file charges against him.

As usual, my first thought is why don't these well to do drinking "celebrities" have enough sense and money to get a driver or chauffeur to drive them to and from their escapades?
I think they can all afford a hired driver or friend for a few hours.
Mel Gibson, Nick Nolte, Paris Hilton, they've all got millions of dollars.
Heck, call a cab. Cheaper than a DUI.
Glad no one was hurt,, I'm sure he'll be receiving lots of good advice the next few days. Whether he listens to it is another thing.
Looks like Mr. Unser may have a case of the Irish cancer.
Only 23 days till the Daytona 500!!!!!
Hey! I drive that stretch of road all the time, it is pretty hard to screw up there even when drunk, so he must have been plastered.
You just can't reason with some people about driving drunk. You see people who aren't too sober at weddings who seem to think nothing of driving home.
