A few thoughts . . .
He's from Texas, everyone has a gun and feels entitled to it. Many are not registered. People in TX have guns like office workers have staplers.
Video shows he was 100% compliant.
Had a beer with him. OMG way too many people drink & drive, his crime was getting caught. Don't get me wrong, my point is the vast majority of those who drink/drive with regularity NEVER get caught (and if you asked them, they'd say they cannot believe they have not been caught).
As bad as this is, at least he didn't exacerbate the situation with poor behavior.
He'll probably get 4 games for 1st offense, but looks like he'll pay a larger price if there's any clause in his contract re: behavior.
Looks like he was ATV'ing, who knows where, could have needed gun depending on where he was (wild game in that area could have been a hazzard).
