Want to Kill A Friend And Almost Kill Your Wife? Have A Drink And Then Drive


Roger Avary is the latest celebrity to decide he would rather kill someone than to take a cab after having too much to drink. In this latest incident, the Academy Award winning screenwriter of Pulp Fiction was arrested Sunday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and felony drunken driving after a car accident in the Ojai area in which another man was killed and Avary's wife was injured.

The other man killed was a passenger in the car named Andreas Zini who was visiting Avary from Italy. Welcome to America Andreas. Oh, in the backseat was Avary's wife who was completely thrown from the car. The only reason she is still alive is that she was thrown so far out of the car that she landed on the grassy shoulder on the side of the road. If she had hit the cement she would have been dead also.

Luckily Avary's car was the only car involved in the accident. Otherwise he could have tried to add to his death total. I mean that must have been what he wanted when he allegedly drove under the influence right? Why else would you do it? To show you are a man and tough to your Italian friend? To not lose face in front of your wife? Too proud to admit you were allegedly drunk? Of course you could go the whole Hulk Hogan route and blame it on the fact that neither passenger was wearing a seatbelt. Can't wait to hear what you told your wife, and what you say at the funeral. Oh, you probably won't show up will you? Maybe you will be off in a bar drinking, and then can take a little drive home afterwards.

Yeah drinking and driving is definitely disgusting and unnecessary. John Mayer actually posted a blog this weekend about how cool it is to use a designated driver, which I thought was a cool thing for him to do.

what i thought strange was from what i read the italian guy who died and Avary's wife were in the backseat and there was no front seat passenger? maybe there is more to this than just DUI.

unless i read that wrong on a diff site.

I am not wishing death on anyone and to the family of the guy that was killed i am very sorry for your lost but I am actually thinking that now they and i mean california will offer tougher penalties especially on celebs that drive drunk....

AMEN Hollywood lawyer!

There just isn't any excuse to drive drunk, and this story is why drunk drivers ought to go to jail. While I understand celebrity justice, it is an outrage that Parasite Hilton, Blohan, and Junkie Ritchie get a few hours for driving blasted and endangering all of us on the road. Parasite Hilton should have gotten the chair, instead of a measly 21 days. And she should have been forced to get assraped in a cell by Bubba instead of spending her sentence masturbating her valtrex vagina in the prison infirmary.

Dirnking and driving celebs really p*ss me off. Know what else really p*sses me off? Friends and spouses that get in the car with people that drink and drive. Use your brain, people. Drive AND ride responsibly.

les, thank you for using your vulgarity and anger in a healthy and positive way. More power to you (in this post).

Jolara said...

I ditto what dnfrommn said re: Les!

Drinking and driving is the most stupid, selfish, uncaring thing anyone can ever do. And anyone who rides with them are idiots and anyone who lets these a-holes drive knowing they are drunk are pitiful a-holes and are not friends! Call them a cab, or call a cop. I am so sick of hearing about these preventable homicides happening to innocent people and especially children. People need to get a grip and take responsibility of their actions.

sorry for the rant.

__-__=__ said...

Thank you for your comments les, but I truly think Parasite would have enjoyed getting assraped.

Now, back to the subject. I would like to say that some people don't mean to drive drunk. Some people are functionally blacked out and drive and you might never know they are blacked out. They don't even have a clue what they're doing. Somebody has to stay sober and drive and take that task seriously. Recent death in such a situation. Very sad.

Of course cabs are a good answer to this too. Just something to think about.

Dijea said...

Idiots. Everyone who drinks and drives deserves to be put in a cell with the parent of someone who has lost a child to drunk driving. A cell with no windows, no cameras and no consequences.

Les Suckno For President said...

I try to amuse but tend to offend.

When Parasite Hilton worked as a prostitute out of her apartment during her first year in LA, she was known for two things: not requiring condom use and letting her johns perform anal sex on her. Sh she might very well enjoy being assraped in prison.

Personally, I think Parasite Hilton is the devil personified. She represents everything ugly and untoward in this society, from her various venereal diseases to her extensive prostitution and abortion history to her ability to earn a living by smiling and pretending to be stupid. I'm glad her grandfather effectively disinherited her. I'm glad her career is in meltdown. I hope she is killed by a drunk driver.

jax said...

oh Les..you's crazy! Did you not know she PAID THEM?

Drunk drivers should have to do the following:

-lose their license for a min of 5 years.
-Be on call and participate in police ride alongs to accidents involving drunk driving.
-clean up the roadways of the carnage.
-witness a police officer telling next of kin of accident and possble death.
-donate %5 of their annual earnings to MADD.
-serve 30 days in a real jail.

Let's see who drives drunk then.

My Grandfather was killed by a drunk driver, I and my children have been hit by not one but TWO drunk drivers! The first of which stumbled up to my car and preceeded to hurl profanity and myself and my young children while pouring out his alcohol onto the street so the police wouldn't find it?!?! Fortunately, that moron is in prison, and we lived to tell the tale. I assume this prick was at a bar where someone should have cut him off? And his wife should have "lost" their keys...people need to get a clue, no matter where they live. No one takes this seriously until they lose people they know/love.
<---(getting of soapbox now)

jlb said...

All that fucking money those people havex and their egos negate the logic of a driver or a cab. I will never understand that.

Twisted Sister said...

Les must be tired of seeing her/his posts deleted.


I don't wish death on anyone either, except if they're driving drunk. Those assholes don't die - they only kill innocent people and that really pisses me off.

Alpine Summer said...

When I was 13, my best friend was killed by a drunk driver while on the way to my house. He died instantly. His cousin, who was driving, suffered a broken femur and lots of cuts and bruises. Drunk driver walked away (stumbled?) without a single injury.

Oh, and this was in the middle of the afternoon.

Twisted Sister said...

Jax, the way I'm reading the item here, the visiting friend from Italy was in the front seat and the drivers wife was in the back seat.

Reese said...

Sounds like my story, Alpine Summer. Fifteen year old friend who lived two houses down was killed in the middle of a summer day while out walking his dog. Drunk driver (multiple previous DUIs) ran over the honor student; he and I had several classes together and were good friends. Ten years later and I'm still furious and sick about it.

Ror said...

Just remember that everyone accused of "Drunk" driving isn't necessarily "drunk". They are in the eyes of the law. A BAC of .08 to someone who has tolerance and weighs over 200 pounds isn't going to have the same effect on a 115 pound teenager.

Angela said...

This really burns my biscuits. In kindergarten, a close friend was hit and killed by a drunk driver on his way to school. I have never understood why someone would A) drive drunk; and/or B) be drunk at 7 a.m. For God's sake, he was only 5. I have no pity for drunk drivers and the 'inconvenience' of having their licenses revoked or any other punishment. In this particular case, a family in Italy is grieving for their son that is an ocean away.

Jones said...

I can drink a bit too much when i go out, but the thing is i cant count on any of my friends being a designated driver. So i simply bring my cell phone and have someone in my family or a friend that isn't drinking pick me up, of course they know ahead of time tho. I like my mom to pick me up, strange as it seems because she's got a high tolerance of people. That includes me and the people we usually end up dropping off somewhere else. I don't mind looking dorky, or childish to someone else... its simply that i do not care about what people say about me, but i do care about what i do in life. It's a decision people must make (to think about others) before they drink. Oh also, at least for down here, to get away with murder you just have to be (or know) a cop.

Ror said...

We just had a High School principal pulled over for DWI. Blew WELL over .08, failed every single test. So what does the principal do? Pulls out his cell phone, calls a cop he knows, and hands it to the cop. The cop DROVE HIM HOME! It was all on video tape. So Jones is right. It's who you know. Fucking cops are assholes. They let go a obvious drunk who has a "high profile" job, but won't cut a "nobody" any slack.

Rhianna said...

I have several nurses in the family. The sad consensus is that "drunks bend, victims break". I have no issues letting them swing from a short rope, especially if someone is permanently injured or killed. I do like the idea of a jail cell, no windows, no cameras, no consequences.

Oh, and do civies not push DDs? Hubby has been a DD at all our bases, to the point 2AM calls don't disturb my sleep any more. He gets up, he drives them home safe, he comes home. WTF is so hard about that???

Kara said...

It's amazing how many seamingly well educated, compassionate & smart adults think they're OK to drive after drinks!

Every time I hear of it, I want to smack my forehead.

Either plan to sleep over or have a DD. Period.

Miss X said...

Ent, great post.

I'm yet another person affected a few times by drunk drivers killing my friends. I won't go into details but when is it not sad?

I recently had a friend get a DUI. I have no patience for people who whine about their DUIs. They were driving intoxicated, they should be thankful they didn't kill anyone!

Anon said...

Ror there's a reason for laws and people should follow them, period. We don't need to debate whether or not someone's impaired *just because the law says they are*. If the law says they shouldnt be driving then they shouldnt be driving.

Kate said...

drunk driving is disgusting and inexcusable. get a DD, driver, yo momma, whatever to pick you up.

HOWEVER, a cab in Ojai ENT? are you high? the town is roughly the size of my backyard

bewbs said...

Sooperserial: yeah, John Mayer's post was admirable.

Another notable turn was David Arquette seen prominently on TMZ securing DDs for himself and Courtney yesterday...

KEEP IT UP
