*** UPDATE *** January 6, 2008
Earlier reports were incorrect. Robert Castle only has two DUI citations in the last decade. In order to qualify for the Washington State felony DUI law a suspect must have 5 convictions within the past 10 years. Castle does not qualify. It is very difficult to collect 5 DUI convictions in 10 years. This law needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
Seattle, Washington – December 29, 2007. Robert Castle loves drinking alcohol. Robert also loves driving while he is drunk as evident of his fifteen (15) DUI arrests. However, the State of Washington does not love individuals that drink and drive. Washington now has a felony DUI law, and Robert qualifies as he has 5 DUI convictions within the last 10 years.
When Robert Castle is busted for DUI the police must earn the arrest. Robert probably has been in jail and alcohol treatment a lot, and most likely does not like either. He knows when he is busted for DUI he must do both jail and treatment.
So last Saturday night Robert is cruising around with a buddy in the passenger seat. As Robert was getting off of Interstate 5 he rammed another vehicle with his pickup truck. Robert Castle did not want to face the consequences, so he drove away from the accident scene. Rob did not get very far until police corralled him.
As the officers approached Castle’s vehicle, Castle exited his car and started to fight. Fighting armed sober people is not a good idea when you are completely hammered. Robert was tasered and lost the fight. < Check this out if you want to see a drunk guy getting tasered >
Robert was booked into the King County Jail and most likely will face the following criminal charges: DUI, Hit and Run Attended and Driving While Licensed Suspended. Robert also has a few outstanding warrants for eluding and a previous DUI.
The day before this event Robert Castle had a date at the Seattle Municipal Court for a prior DUI. He decided not to attend court. Shockingly, the municipal judge only imposed a $10,000 arrest warrant. As of Friday this guy had 14 previous DUI arrests. Only a $10,000 warrant? I would have imposed at least $500,000 and directed the Seattle Police to immediately track this menace down and drag him to my court.
Anyone wondering why Robert’s friend did not drive that night? Well during the police stop the passenger opened the pickup door and fell out of the truck and injured himself. He was very drunk. Winner.
Robert I hope you become a long-time resident of Walla Walla or Monroe.
