It was six months ago when Scott Petredis' family heard a knock on their door and was told by police that their son was killed in a wreck on I-275. Now, a man will serve six years in prison (for crashing into him and killing him in the process) while drunk driving last March.

just as doubletop i also have the same question here... how the fcukl can casino be responsible for the fact that some drunk idiot instead of taking a taxi decided to use his car instead... so what next- some random shop is responsible for some freak who drank a bottle of vodka and went on shooting in the street?

. . .Police reports show he reached speeds up to 140 miles per hour when the crash occurred. . .
140 miles per hour? No wonder he got charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, instead of involuntary manslaughter and DUI, in connection with the death of Scott Petredis, the motorist, who was involved in the crash. My condolence to the victim's families, friends, and colleagues.
one thing I know for sure - in any case do not sit behind the wheel drunk ... and do not try to convince yourself that you can get home without incident ... drunk driving potential killer, and they must be judged very severely, even if it's just the police caught .. even if he had not violated more - take away the right to drive
Well speed and being totally wasted don't mix to well this guy made the wrong choice and should be punished accordingly. A couple beers won't hurt I think in most countries it's one beer an hour anything over that and you will be over the Legal Limit.

So... It was only a matter of time before some lawyer or other decided that there may be something in it for them to defend a drunk driver and claim it was someone else's fault. How on earth can a bar be accused of causing someone to drink to excess and then drive? I can see it now, I'm sorry judge, I was only speeding because I filled my tank with super premium fuel and it made my car go faster than normal so therefore it's the oil company's fault.

Isnt there a law for not serving the drunk customers? How hard was to see if he was drunk or not, and they kept serving him ? The penalties, or punishment for the casino should have been more that a fine, or a loss of the liquor license. 140 mile per hour. Thats 225 km. Being sober you cant control much a car in these speeds, imagine being drunk.
Nobody held a gun to his head to continue drinking so I guess the casino is only responsible for things which happen on their lot and not the things which their customers do after they leave. just my two cents.
