Steve McNair, The Non-Driving Drunk Driver

So Ravens quarterback Steve McNair was arrested in Nashville this morning for a DUI, which is impressive considering he wasn't driving the car.

McNair was a passenger in own car, and his brother-in-law was driving. When the car was pulled over, the driver refused a breathalyzer, and, thanks to an odd (but perhaps justified) Tennessee law, McNair — because he owns the vehicle — was charged with a misdemeanor DUI himself. They did not test McNair's blood alcohol content.


Again, we understand the idea behind such a law — we tend to consider it a bad idea, in general, to let drunk people drive our car — but still aren't sure how to react to this. We just want to point out that it was not, in fact, Kyle Boller driving the car.
