NWCN - The driver who crashed into the railing on the Southwest Denney Road overpass and was stuck dangling over Highway 217 for over an hour had been drinking at a friend’s house in Beaverton during the Civil War game, police said. Matthew Hamilton, 34, of Beaverton had a blood alcohol content of .5 percent, which is more than 6-times over the legal limit, when he crashed through the guardrail. He was trapped hanging over the highway for nearly an hour before rescuers saved him around 3:40 p.m. on Saturday. “A .50 blood-alcohol content is very high. In my career, I have never seen that nor have I ever heard of anyone having a blood-alcohol content that high and still being able to be talking and communicating,” said officer Mike Rowe with the Beaverton Police Department.
How did the cops know this guy was drunk? Like what gave them the right to just stop and harass him while he’s driving minding his own business? So fucking fed up with these cops and their power trips thinking they can do whatever they want. Can a guy just watch the Oregon/Oregon State game and slam a few brewskis without getting hassled? Not like he was bothering anybody. Hey wait a minute
Yeah on second thought probably shouldn’t be driving around legally dead.
