    Man says he shot car with paintballs to deter DUI
    From Associated Press

    KENNEWICK, Wash. - A man who reportedly told police he was trying to deter a friend from driving drunk by blasting the friend's windshield with paintballs wound up in jail. In the words of Kennewick, Wash., police Sgt. Ken Lattin: "This is a very creative way to prevent someone from drinking and driving, but not legal or safe."

    Responding Tuesday night to a nearby resident's report of a man shooting paintballs at a car, police found the 41-year-old man, who explained his rationale.

    The Tri-City Herald reported the man was arrested and booked into the Benton County jail for investigation of unlawfully discharging a weapon and an unrelated misdemeanor warrant.

    Lattin suggested a designated driver would be a better approach.

    a state of irrational (not thinking) panic, no doubt.

    I'd bet money the shooter was drinking too, probably more intoxicated than the wannabe driver. And it said he was arrested also on an unrelated warrant=real "winner".

    I hate when the police trump up carges. Discharging a weapon? A paintball gun is not a weapon.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
