Best laugh I’ve had all day.
He was pretending to be back at work.
Do they protect their own?...This happened Dec 1st and we are just hearing about this?
Nice to see SAM in the news these days...and I hope he gets some evil treatment like he so often gave to others......
You know what this means..obviously we have to ban booze/sarc
One of nation’s moralizers! Will there be a 60 Minutes story on that? Holding my breath.
What did Sam drink and when did he drink it?
Delaware beaches are some of the worst places to drive drunk, especially in winter with nothing else to do. Basically it’s speeding and DUIs for revenue generation.
Did they need a cage that rat he wears on his head? ;-)
He also ought to have been charged with impersonating a Kennedy.
Mug shot please!!!
I remember seeing Sam in Q&As in some kind of public formum. The hubris and arrogance of their inflated opinions of the “reporter” profession were astounding! Both he and that Alfred E. Neumann-looking guy whose name escapes me. Both were/are arrogant assholes.
Did Sam know the frequency? We know Dan didn’t.
When I quickly scanned the headline and saw “ABC News Anchor” and “DUI” I assumed it was Diane Sawyer.
He’s a former reporter? I didn’t realize he’d retired.
Sam would have failed sobriety tests through out most of his career....no surprise here
I didn’t know Donaldson drank until I saw him sober once.
And how many children are killed each year by drunk drivers?
Say it isn't so .... the King of the Uni-Brows driving drunk.
Time to ban cars for everyone...for the children.
Delaware beaches are some of the worst places to drive drunk, especially in winter with nothing else to do. Basically its speeding and DUIs for revenue generation.
So true.... and don’t get caught doing 26 m.p.h in the 25 m.ph. zone on coastal highway in Bethany Beach.
Which rug was he wearing? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday of the festive rainbow weekend one?
All in the name of safety...nothing to do with generating revenue.
Didn’t Sam get a government-issued car and driver in his retirement package as a reward for his loyal service? :)
They have a tiny tiny stretch of I95 and they toll it. It's 4 or 5 bucks to go 20 measly miles and loaded with speed traps.
Other states have hundreds of miles of I95 without any tolls. But Delaware thinks it's entitled to soak everyone. It is highway robbery.
Is the title “network reporter” close enough in importance to be allowed “trial as celebrity”?
Delaware shouldn’t even be a state anymore.
I’m in lovely Wilmington, DE right now.
To paraphrase Joe Biden, Delaware is a big f***ing deal!
Nah, his hair piece has a chin strap...
I wonder if Jack “Hit’n’Run” Cafferty will mention this?
Trying to keep the help from murdering each other on your ranch is enough to drive a man to drink.
All toll roads are highway robbery. I’m so glad we don’t have them out west (well except California, but who would go there intentionally)
It’s amazing really, some of the highways out west are engineering marvels. Through canyons, over mountains, across deserts, through some beautiful scenery. Some of the bridges are master pieces. Yet they only cost your fuel tax. Meanwhile across the midwest perfectly straight across flat lands cost tolls aplenty. The skyway bridge outside of chicago is a short bridge, extremely ugly, and perpetually under construction, but it costs 3.50 each way (really?)
“And how many children are killed each year by drunk drivers?”
I don’t know, but it’s time for us to have a serious national conversation about restricting automatic transmissions.
None taken. :)
Check out these tolls:
Finally, a little good news. Bet he gets off, though.
Always the first or second one in Reagan’s face during pressers...with his plastic hair. Gone are the days when antagonistic reporters dogged the President.
I’ll enjoy this moment of shadenfreude..and hope he pays dearly. Creepy creepy man.
Best bit of news I’ve read all day. Enjoy your experience with the American legal system, Sam.
his toupee was released on it’s own recognizance.
The tolls between Baltimore and GWB are almost 40 bucks now. Weather permitting I take the shunpike: I83, I81, I84. A little longer to go to/from NE but saves 70-80 bucks.
Where is the mugshot?????
Sammy always looks, talks, and acts drunk to me.
That’s ridiculous. I remember driving from FL to DE while in the military. I thought it odd that I was paid with tax dollars, then taxed myself. Then driving on roads my taxes helped make, I was made to pay to use them. The government has quite the racket going.
