Macklemore Struck by Drunk Driver: In July Macklemore was involved in a high impact traffic crash while driving his pickup truck.  Both vehicles had fully deployed airbags and crushed front ends.  The other driver was found to have a breath alcohol content of 0.19 grams per 210 liters of breath.  The legal limit is 0.08 grams per 210 liters of breath.  The police report indicated that the intoxicated driver swerved into Machlemore’s lane.  This accident occurred in Langley, Washington which is about two hours north of Seattle.

Macklemore Struck by Drunk Driver:  Macklemore discussed the crash in a radio interview.  He described his thoughts as he observed the other vehicle speeding toward him around a corner and swerving into his lane thusly:

There’s just that split second of like, ‘I’m gonna die,’ — BOOM — and then you get hit. I thought the other guy was dead. Everyone in my car was safe. My little 10-year-old nephew was using curse words that I didn’t know he knew.  Macklemore said he felt thankful his Maybach was a “tank,” but he knew if the car had not been so strong, he might have died. He then tried to dissuade anyone tempted to drink and drive. He urged people to “take Ubers, walk, take the bus,” and he said. Just don’t drink and drive. It’s not worth it.

Hot Cop of Castro Runs Down Pedestrians

Hot Cop of Castro Runs Down Pedestrians

Hot Cop of Castro Runs Down Pedestrians: Police allege that on the last day of November, 2015, invalided Officer Christopher Kohrs struck two pedestrians who were crossing the street and then fled on foot.  Kohrs has been called the “Hot Cop of Castro” and is something of a celebrity in the Castro District of San Francisco and on the social media.  Kohrs was not apprehended until the next day when he turned himself in at the police station, probably with his lawyer.  Kohrs was charged with two felony hit and run offenses and was subsequently released upon the posting of a $100,000.00 bond.  The bond is a payment made by or on behalf of the accused to gain his release from jail pending trial.  The bond is a financial assurance that the Accused will appear for all court dates and remain of good behavior pending trial.  #HotCopOfCastroRunsDownPedestrians

Hot Cop of Castro Runs Down Pedestrians: District Attorney George Gascon expressed some concerns for his case due to the lack of drug and alcohol testing of Kohrs after the pedestrians were run down.  It is not clear how Kohrs’ alleged failure to render assistance and failure to remain at the scene would be affected by the Government’s inability to prove he was drunk or high at the time of the collision.  The felony hit and run statutes are neutral as far as the sobriety of the driver who flees the scene.  #HotCopOfCastroRunsDownPedestrians

Hot Cop of Castro Runs Down PedestriansThese two felony charges have cast a shadow on Kohrs’ internet fame as it has been reported that his Facebook page has been taken down.  That is probably an expected result since the allegations put Kohrs in a less than favorable light.  According to police, Kohrs’ orange Dodge Charger struck the two middle aged men and then stopped.  The driver’s image was caught as he raced away on foot from the scene.  The video shows everyone else rushing to the scene to assist his victims.  Ironically, Kohrs was on medical leave status at the time due to a work related knee injury.  From the video the person racing away from the injured persons seemed to be in top shape based on his running form and great foot speed.  Also, ironically, Kohrs cannot be suspended from the force while out on medical disability.  If and when he goes off disability he can be suspended without pay.  Until then he continues to draw his disability pay and is entitled to all other benefits.
