If they tested him and he wasn’t drunk, I would give him the benefit of the doubt. He doesn’t have any history of bad driving, as far as I can tell, and he had no reason to flee the scene of a fender bender.
That’s how I thing and this is ominously like what happened to Bob Novak. Hence, the benefit of the doubt. If anyone here thinks I’m a stealth Obamunist, just read all my other posts about the Illegal.
Bryson is said to have “an unnamed underlying medical condition.” If it is epilepsy his seizure could be mistakenly diagnosed as substance abuse or mental illness.
“Society's lack of understanding about the many different types of seizures is one of the biggest problems for people with epilepsy. People who witness a non-convulsive seizure often find it difficult to understand that behavior which looks deliberate is not under the person's control. In some cases, this has led to the affected person being arrested or admitted to a psychiatric hospital. To combat these problems, people everywhere need to understand the many different types of seizures and how they may appear.”
I have witnessed an epileptic seizure in the VA hospital. The staff thought the patient was drunk or drugged. They called security but before they arrived the symptoms—slurred voice, maniacal laughing, staggering—subsided. Then a nurse discovered the man was epileptic from a medical bracelet he wore.
I'm not a fan of Bryson. He's tied to the Energy Department BrightSource scandal and is part of perhaps the most corrupt administration in more than 100 years.
Withdrawal from alcohol or benzodiazepines can cause seizures, so he could be a alcoholic who recently decided to get clean on his own.
