It would seem odd to charge someone diagnosed with ADHD with impaired ability for taking prescribed meds that are supposed to improve attention. Now if a blood test comes back and shows they took way more than prescribed then it would make sense. 

 

It does seem odd, but my wife heard the cops threaten my son for exactly that. 

 

There is a lot of conjecture going on here. I’m not sure how many attorneys are present and laws vary from state to state. I think we just need to wait to see how it plays out, hope he gets a break (if he needs it) and learns some lessons.

Thanks NoSaint.....but let these boys have their fun.  It's like they are whistling past the graveyard.  

 

There are those that answer questions and there are those who can only yell at the questioner.  I welcome all responses.   It's a significant part of the entertainment value of this site!

 

True, some people are "whistling" and others have him and his career "buried" in the graveyard.

As to the drug implications, the testing will tell and until then ALL this talk is speculation whether good or bad.

 

People can have trace elements of pain killers and other drugs in their system but it's not a crime unless the levels "impair" your driving.

When the results come back then and only then will it be determined IF a crime was committed and what charges are appropriate.

Then the lawyers and courts will do their jobs.

Patience is needed by everyone including Ed.

Dion Jordan was shocked to learn his TUE was not valid when he tested positive.

 

Too bad for Jordan.  Means nothing for Oliver.

What this would be saying is that anyone on Adderall can't drive.  Doesn't seem like a legit charge and one that could easily be defended by a competent attorney.

I've kind of avoided this thread because every time these things happen, people go batschitcrazy, but I can't just let you throw this low floater over the plate.

 

They're probably sitting on the BAL info specifically and exclusively so you can have another week of hope that he'll fail the test, get booted from the team, and lead to the gutting top to bottom of everyone at OBD so you can finally have your shot to show the world why, really, you're the only person qualified to run the team.

 

Yeah.  It's interesting to see him float (sometimes pages and pages of) theories of how Cheaters players/owners might be innocent or skirt charges, but how Bills players might be guilty and shouldn't be shown leniency.

Lol what?  But as for how anyone might defend against any charges (never "skirt charges")---it's all pretty obvious stuff and is discussed pretty much anywhere (the Kraft Knob Kaper was a prime example--and the outcome of that one was seen by most a mile away).  Instead of simply acknowledging how it obviously would go down ,you attacked the messenger. 

 

Anyway.  Some states disallow driving while under the influence of controlled substance (including amphetamines/adderall)--Operating While Intoxicated.  Michigan is one, for instance.  The charge is applied whether you have a legal prescription or not.

 

I was asking previously if Texas was such a state.  The implications for Oliver, regardless of his BAL, are obvious.  You could have just answered the question, but I know that's impossible for you.
