I was thinking the same thing reallyhaha. Even though it is negative attention, he is probably loving it. Just like a little kid does. I hope he gets the book thrown at him.
On DA Files DUI Charges Against Armendariz

I'm curious as to why it is taking so long to get the blood results? Does anyone know the answer? Seems other people are arrested right away.
On Carpinteria Councilmember Joe Armendariz Arrested for DUI
Posted on December 7 at 8:24 a.m.
What are the ramifications? I don't know, but I will say that I think Mr. Armendariz should absolutely set an example this second time, and step down. He fooled the people of Carpinteria into thinking he was going to get sober the first time, and he failed. This time he should humble himself and remove himself from public office. It seems he needs to concentrate less on politics and more on his own disease. I hope the judge keeps him off the roads for a long time and doesn't let politics sway his/her decision.

Being that this is a second offense, I really don't see how he can get away with it. Especially if he is at a .16 or higher. To let him get away with it again and again, only enables him to do it again sometime in the future.

I really hope we don't hear the "he has a disease" thing until they are blue in the face. Seriously, if this were an ordinary "Joe" on the street (i.e. one of our coworkers, neighbors, etc)...he would get the book thrown at him, and you know what? Nobody would care if he had a disease. Mr. Armendariz chose to drink again after the last incident. He could have killed a mother, a father, a brother, a sister, a child, a grandchild, a family! I certainly hope the press and the judge gives him no mercy. Disease or not, until this man is sober for a very long time, he should never get behind a wheel and he should do jail time just like the rest of us would. If this doesn't happen, there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with our judicial system!
