Arresting officer Rochelle Jones said the aggravated charge was levied because after Kohlhofer displayed signs of intoxication during a field sobriety test, she agreed to take a Breathalyzer test and her blood alcohol concentration was above the .16 threshold for the more-serious aggravated charge. Jones said Kohlhofer "was above the legal limit" and admitted she drank wine before driving.
A Manhattan judge has dismissed portions of a lawsuit Dan Rather (pictured) has filed against CBS and Viacom.
A lawyer for the defendants, lead outside counsel James Quinn, said the judge's ruling eliminated Rather's core complaints of fraud and breach of good faith and fair dealing.
Mr Quinn said the ruling was a great victory for them and all that's left for Dan Rather is a garden variety contract dispute.
CBS said in a statement: "We are gratified that the court has dismissed the majority of Mr. Rather’s claims.”
Dan Rather filed the suit against CBS shortly after he was fired as news anchor at CBS.
It all started when Rather narrated the September 2004 report that claimed President Bush skirted some of his duties during his National Guard service.
CBS determined the story was neither fair nor accurate.
A state trooper who stopped the 1993 BMW last fall says its driver, 28-year-old Justin Vonkummer of Millerton, N.Y., blamed his driving problems on an errant Oreo.
Vonkummer told the trooper that an Oreo had just slipped from his fingers as he dunked it in a cup of milk, and that he was trying to fish it out when he lost control of his car.
Hillary Rodham Clinton's brothers, Hugh and Tony, have received payments from four people who obtained pardons or commutations from President Bill Clinton.
1995 Convicted in Minneapolis for moving 800 pounds of cocaine.
2001 Commutation granted for time served with a special condition of drug testing during supervised release.
Hugh Rodham (pictured below with Bill Clinton) returned the $400,000 he received from Vignali and Braswell, after being asked to do so by his family.
Tony Rodham allegedly received $107,000 in loans as compensation for securing the pardons.
An ABC article, at the second link below, wonders if the Clinton’s repaid these amounts on behalf of the Rodham brothers. Then, instead of calling them gifts, the amounts were set up as interest free loans.
That would solve the puzzle of the interest income shown as paid to the Clinton’s by family members on their recently released income tax returns.
The article explains how the IRS imputes interest on such loans that the lender must include on the tax return.
This information probably would have been ignored while the Clinton’s were still in favor with the media. The Clinton’s get no favors from the press now that Barack Obama is the current media ‘super star.’
