Not even the United States Congress, despite the best efforts of Duke Cunningham, Bob Ney, William "the Cooler" Jefferson, Mark Foley, et al., can claim [a 15 percent arrest] rate.They weren't all DUIs. One was for "boating" under the influence. Other arrests were made for such infractions as carrying a concealed weapon, drug possession, spousal battery, vandalism and burglary.
What is in the water in Cincinnati? Vodka apparently.
With Deltha O'Neal's arrest for drunk driving [Dec. 8], the (Cincinnati) Bengals organization has broken its own single-season record for stupidity and selfishness.

Last night on NFL "Monday Night Football," one member of the broadcast team reported that the Cincinnati Bengals front office had arranged for a limousine service to provide a ride for any Bengals player who felt he was too drunk to drive.
Given the salaries most of these players receive, you'd think they could easily afford to have a limo and driver waiting outside the bar at which they're drinking.
