I think McNair can beat this rap with the Commissioner by saying he did not know his driver was drunk and that because McNair is such a solid citizen (and apparently an alcoholic given his prediliction into his mid-30s for not just drinking but getting legally drunk) he did not want to get behind the wheel because he was too wasted to drive.
So much for any Budweiser endorsements; maybe McNair can work out a deal with cab companies that encourage bar patrons to take a taxi home.
And for McNair... In one sense, I admire the fact that HE didn't climb behind the wheel... but I am befuddled that his good judgement stopped there.
McNair... Here is a hint... If the guy you're giving the keys to is staggering around like he was in the presense of Ray Lewis and a knife.... it is best to get someone ELSE to drive, or take a cab!
