This irritates me. First off, I hate DUI with a passion. And these athletes should be setting examples for kids. Hines should know better. One thing I can say for certain...20 years ago, almost all these athletes got a pass on criminal offenses like this. Now, they are being treated like the rest of society, as well they should.

Twenty years ago, I suspect, his BAC would not have been DUI.

Did you see what his BAC was? I did not. But the reduction to .08 for the legal limit changed DUI results very little. Very few of those arrested for DUI are under .10% I will try and find some statistics. But I can guarantee you it's very little change.

Oh, and one more thing about Hines. He needs to go back to being a FOOTBALL player and NOT a celebrity. Winning DWTS has changed him.....went to his head.
