Last night our extended family came over for a family party, and my FIL had way too much to drink. While my husband had run down to the corner store to get some ice, my FIL was out the door, with his keys, before anyone realized. My BILs went out to try to get him out of the car, but because he already had the engine running, was belted in and only opened the window a crack, they couldn't stop him.
Everyone shook their heads but seemed to shrug it off. Their house is a 20 minute drive away, and I was appalled. I said I was calling the police and everyone told me not to, but I did anyway because drunk driving is seriously unacceptable.
FIL was arrested and had a BAC of .19. My husband is on my side, but the rest of the family has been calling all morning to get angry with me, saying you shouldn't call the police on family. Apparently he is going to have to pay upwards of $1000+ in fines and will lose his license for a year, which will cost him his job. I stand by what I did.
What do you think?
