An arrest does not mean a conviction, however, being arrested for DWI usually means that there's at least evidence of being intoxicated. August 14th DWI arrest of natasha wesley is interesting since she posted on facebook how parents should take note of their teenagers texting while driving. What a hypocrite! Her daughter was texting while driving, she was "alledgedly" intoxicated while driving. Way to go Mom,..you're setting a great example for her.

I will be the first to admit that dwi means there is evidence. However lets not forget we are innocent until proven guilty. Beware rx by your dr. Is also considered dui. Taking an aspirin before you drive is considered dui. Unless you a judge juror or jesus I don't care what you say. I don't drink nor do I do illegal drugs. How about you?
