I'm Not Saying He Wasn't Drunk, But

Matthew Roloff was arrested on suspicion of DUI about six weeks ago. Roloff is the star of the reality show Little People Big World which is one of the few shows I actually watch. The fact that it comes on Saturday nights should tell you volumes about my personal life. Now, it doesn't say that Roloff failed a blood test, only that he failed a field sobriety test which was administered after he had been seen swerving in his vehicle.

For those of you who have seen the show, I'm surprised he doesn't swerve that big ass truck everytime he drives. With all the gadgets he's got going on in that truck, anyone of them could come loose and cause him to swerve. In addition, how is a guy who needs crutches to walk going to perform a field sobriety test. There is no way he ever would walk a straight line, sober or not, and wouldn't be able to touch his nose either because he would need that hand for balance on his crutch.

Now, if he was really drinking and driving, then throw the book at him because he is considered a role model and an example for little people and big people every where. But, I would also be really sure via a blood test before I just accepted the results of some swerving and a failed field sobriety test in this situation.

i agree ent, he cant walk in a straight line normally they should have gave him another test and with everything in his car driving drunk would be very stupid because i am sober and i probably would be swerving in that thing.

The most troubling thing for me is that Matt refused the breathalizer test. That pretty much speaks volumes. He has also not addressed this prior to hitting the news. I hope he plans to address this in the show. This is a major misstep on Matt's part. He is a motivational speaker at schools and has done so much for little people as well as big people, like you say.

I hope this incident can be used as a wake up call to EVERYONE who thinks that drinking and driving mix.

He could have failed a cognitive field test (zyxwvuts...etc)

That's a cheery looking mug shot. But he was busted 6 weeks ago...who leaked it suddenly? His publicist? He should have a plan together already and a statement prepared!
