This is not really Casey-related news per se, but I thought I’d post about it anyway.
So… while trying to be crowned State Attorney, The Laughing Guy is also gearing up to represent his son in a DUI case.
Here are the facts as reported:
- Alexander Ashton blew a .174 & .177 on a breathalyzer test — twice the legal limit,
- He was going 68
mph in a 45-mph zone,
- When first pulled over, the Seminole County deputy said he could smell alcohol on his breath. The video shows him stumbling and unable to walk a straight line…
The Laughing Guy’s response to all of that?
“We believe he is not guilty and we will argue it’s not guilty to the jury and ultimately the jury will decide or not.”
Yeah, right. This clown could easily have killed a bunch of people while speeding & being twice over the limit – but hey – let’s not worry about the minor details!
Alexander is out on a $500 bond. He’s charged with a second-degree misdemeanor charge and faces up to two months in jail and a fine. The trial is set for Thursday.
It’s amusing to me that The Laughing Guy managed to get the breathalyzer results thrown out because the device was considered “unreliable” — but he had no problem at all wheeling out the infamously flawed “can of air” as evidence in Casey’s trial.
Jeez… couple that with the news (just out) that The Laughing Guy filed for personal bankruptcy fifteen years ago… and it just goes to show that Karma can be a real bitch sometimes
***>>> FEB 16TH UPDATE: Alexander Ashton found guilty of DUI. Judge Herr revoked his license for six months and gave him a year of probation. He will also have to pay court costs and take court-ordered classes.
