“Pulp Fiction” writer arrested after suspected DUI related death

I know celebrity drunk driving arrests have been all the rage for a couple years now, so perhaps its inevitable that vehicular homicides resulting from celebrity DUIs is now becoming an unfortunate trend.

Roger Avary, the Oscar winning screenwriter of “Pulp Fiction,” was arrested early Sunday morning in Ojai after crashing his car and killing a passenger while allegedly driving under the influence. His wife, also a passenger, has been hospitalized with serious injuries. [LA Times]

It is truly a shame that drunk driving is repeatedly taken as an acceptable risk in our society. Can anyone remind me why we can’t permanently revoke licenses and impose stiff prison sentences for repeat offenders until they kill someone?

  1. I couldn’t agree more… People fail to understand or believe that driving is a privilege, not a right. If you kill someone while driving under the influence, there should be an automatic and permanent revoking of your privilege to drive. Of course revoking someone’s license doesn’t necessarily stop someone from driving.. perhaps jail for a very long time would stop someone from driving.

  2. revoke their license? screw that- THROW THEM IN JAIL FOR MANSLAUGHTER or NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE. That will keep them from driving.

    In the meantime, we must stop these unconstitutional traffic stop and searches. Orwell was right, BushCo is evil incarnate.

  3. The problem with taking their licenses away you wind up with unlicensed people driving, and without a license they can’t get insurance so it only compounds the problem.
