He deserves more than a firing, he deserves to be in jail for years in my opinion.  I hate that DUIs don’t get greater punishments in this country.

SalemPirate,

Did he have a suspended license at the time of this DUI? I think his license was just revoked in reaction to this incident.  Or at least that’s all the article stated.

The guy definitely messed up, and this was a completely irresponsible move.  I’m not calling for his firing, or otherwise, but if this is the first time something like this has happened, I would lean towards giving him a second chance. 

I’m sure the board and NH know a lot more than we do.  So if he’s a closet lush, in that case, this is the perfect opportunity to purge him from the organization.

Nutting has issued his statement and didn’t condemn him. Happened 2 months ago and wasn’t mentioned. But if he made a damning internet tweet, like Sanchez, would all hell break loose? He was pretty well looped, put himself and others in potential danger and had a suspended license? WOW.
