Would you kick your DH out because he got a DUI? *UPDATE*

My BIL got a DUI on Saturday and got arrested. He spent 24 hours in jail and then was released. He only had a few nips, so he wasn't drunk, but he was buzzed. Anyways, he is currently bunking on our couch because his wife kicked him out. She said he got arrested on purpose so he didn't have to spend mothers day with her. Which is absurd. IDK if I understand her reasoning for kicking him out. I mean yes, I would be pissed if DH got a DUI, but I wouldn't throw away an 11 year marriage over it. Would you?

UPDATE

Ok, first, I'm not defending him. I think drinking and driving is the most ridiculous thing ever. But he made a mistake, he paid for it, lets move on. If he was a habitual offender, that's a whole other story, but this is not the case. 

UPDATE 2 

He went home today, thank God. I felt bad for him, but it was just such a sad situation. He had to bring over his dachsund, who while he was in jail, ended up with paralyzed back legs. My SIL claims she doesn't know what happened, that she just woke up and he was like that. I'm not so sure. I've seen her rage fits and it makes me wonder if she kicked the dog or threw something at him. But, anyways, the vet said he wasn't in any pain, he just couldn't feel anything from mid back down. He walked around dragging his back legs, and would randomly pee because he didn't know he had to go. It made me so sad. 

But they are home now, and hopefully everything works out. I hate divorces within the family. Both are seeking anger management and both are going to AA and couple counseling. I truly do wish them the best of luck.

No, I would not kick him out over that. But I would be pissed.

I would kick anyone out that I was seeing/married to for a DUI!  There is no excuse for it.

He's not, but she is a heavy drinker.

Yes. If he's dumb enough to get behind the wheel rather than call me, even after only a drink or two, he obviously doesn't know very fucking well.

 I wouldn't, but he's not my husband and my husband wouldn't drink and then drive.
