Man Who Drove Car Off Parking Deck Was DrunkS

Yesterday we told you about the guy that drove his Ford Taurus off a parking garage only to be saved by a few cables that prevented the oval auto from crashing into the ground 200 feet below. We were fairly sure that it was a botched suicide attempt, but we were wrong. It turns out the guy was just totally hammered.

I don't care what you've done when you were drunk, unless you accidentally killed someone it's not going to be worse than waking up from an unconscious state to see the concrete seven floors below. After being released for a cut to his shoulder the driver was charged with damaging property and a DUI. Let this be a friendly reminder from the folks at Jalopnik that you should stay sober when you get behind the wheel this holiday season if only because we doubt anyone will be this lucky again.
