At first, the CHP figured they were dealing with just your everyday average kind of drunk-in-Passat driving on the wrong side of I-80 the other night (when the ethanol-enhanced Passat pilot realized the law was onto him, he figured he'd be all crafty-like, shutting off his headlights and speeding up). Then, tragedy: the Passat smashed head-on into a Grand Prix... also driven by a drunk, causing serious injuries to the two drivers plus the Passat's passengers. We like to see drunks taken off the roads, but not this way.
