One would think that if anyone would know the dangers of drinking and driving it would be a law enforcement officer. Yet we see policeman – and even lieutenant’s in law enforcement – get busted for DUI over and over.

That’s exactly what happened to a Washtenaw County Sheriff’s lieutenant last December. A Montmorency County Sheriff’s Department report shows Lt. Brian Filipiak, 47, have a blood alcohol content of more than 3X the legal limit. This level of intoxication is considered to be in violation of Michigan’s “Super Drunk Law” and carries with it serious penalties – especially for multiple offenders.
