    1. You’re forgetting ‘girly-man’ that ran down the teenaged boy who had the AUDACITY to cross WITH the light in front of girly-man’s split-level (and UNINSURED!) pimp-up up at 1st and Hitt a couple of years back. After a bit under a year cops finally caught up with IT, and some P.A. (hint: DOESN’T mean Prosecuting Attorney!) Bonneville County ‘prosecutor’ bargained him down to TRAFFIC violations. This DESPITE the fact that anyone with an I.Q. over that of, say, a TREE, knew damned good and well the P.O.S. was ‘impaired’ at the time OF the hit and run.
      “….injuries that were described as non-life-threatening.”, so Petunia here won’t pull a DAY in ANY sort of confinement! 🙁

  1. “He was struck by a 2004 Ford Exhibition,..”
    Oh, boy, those Ford “Exhibitions” are really huge!
    Way to get those details straight. KIFI does it again.
    Looks like she may have been at McDonald’s pounding down some Big Mac’s and the leftover McFat Pills.
