The Questioning Sort

The story ended with Vernon Milton Jordan, 57, of Fredricksburg, Va., being charged with drunk driving after a breath test found his blood alcohol level was .31 percent. The story started when two women in a supermarket parking lot in Rock Hill, S.C., watched as a car drove in “erratically,” drove across the grass, and crashed into a ditch. They ran over and asked the driver if he was OK. That’s when Jordan allegedly got out of his car with his pants around his ankles and stumbled toward the women, asking two questions: first, if they thought he would be arrested for drunk driving, and second, if he could have a ride away from the scene. Their answer to the first question wasn’t recorded, but to the second, they said no. When police arrived they asked Jordan if he was OK after the crash. His reply: “I’m drunk,” due to drinking a dozen “tallboy” beers. (RC/WCNC Charlotte) ...Which pretty much guaranteed the answer to his first question would be “Yes.”
