Police said alcohol apparently played a big role.

I'll bet they had just finished doing some Christmas Shopping at Walmart. I felt the same way after shopping there the other day. How does a van run over your legs and you receive only 'minor' injuries? Is he a man of steel? Oh wait. He was drunk. That explains it. Drunks rarely get hurt.

I think I have stopped at that gas station. Easy access for lots of police to join in the fun!

I'd say that the family will have an interesting Christmas dinner if both manage to make bail in time.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas...

Note to self: put a little less rum in the egg nog this year.

Another heartwarming Christmas miracle story...oh wait, it's just a drunk daddy-daughter debacle.

Sounds like Chuck Norris got a sex change and beat the crap out of that youngster (I was going to say old man, but hell, we're mostly all older than him).

Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry!

You might be a redneck if you live along US 12 in northern Illinois. That could have been one of several of my neighbors growing up. Our town boasted more taverns than cops.

ML, you say that like it's a bad thing . . .

You know that moment when you haven't had a drink in a couple of hours and, through your foggy, confused brain, you start to wonder why a Neandertal mouse has been nesting in your mouth, why you seem to have fur growing INTO your brain from the skull, and why you are sitting on a concrete bunk?
Neither do I. But I bet they do.

Families should be together at Christmas. The drunk tank is a festive holiday place.

The (apparent) fact (?) that he wuz 16 when she wuz conceived might offer sum hints as to familial bonding and moral upbringing ... not to be preachy or nuthin' such as that ... merely sayin' ...

Also, too bad that the "reporter" needs sum remedial classes in English Usage and the AP Stylebook ...

*snif* I just love Christmas...it is just so heartwarming to see families get together and celebrate....or, alternatively, cause mayhem...

Daughter to father "Now THAT was a party."
Father to daughter "Sniff. I just love it when we do things as a family."
