What an effing embarrassment. Kenny "The Drunk" Stabler earns his 3rd DUI in 13 years:
Kenny Stabler, former football star for the University of Alabama and the Oakland Raiders, was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence early Sunday in Robertsdale.
Around 1 a.m. Sunday, Stabler was pulled over for a traffic offense on Alabama 59 and charged with a DUI, said Brian Middleton, assistant chief of police for the Robertsdale Police Department.
Stabler spent the night in jail and was released on bond 12 hours after the arrest, Middleton said. His bond had been set at $1,000.
Prior to Sunday's arrest, Stabler had been charged with DUI on at least two previous occasions. In 2001, he pleaded guilty to drunken driving after being arrested in Orange Beach. Stabler entered that plea as part of a deal whereby the police dropped drug and reckless driving charges. Also, in 1995, the former quarterback pleaded no contest to a DUI charge in Escambia County, Fla.
A class act, that Kenny. What is the deal with UAT's "legendary" honkey quarterbacks? I'm pretty sure if you look up "dirtbag" in the dictionary you'd see a picture of "The Snake" Stabler (see also: "I wanna kiss you"). How dysfunctional do you have to be at sixty-three-gosh-damn-years-of-age to rack up your third shitfaced moving violation (or SMV) since you qualified for membership in the AARP?
This asshat needs help. Mental and emotional assistance. He certainly doesn't need to be an on-air role model for the rest of our great state's drunken rednecks...reliving old Pell City High School badassery and driving the streets near me at 1am on a Sunday.
In many states, multiple DUIs in a 5-7 year period constitute a felony. That makes things a tad bit harder to find a job, much less keep one. This begs the question, what does it take for a legendary ole drunk to get fired from his/her obnoxious color-man gig at UAT? (Paging Jay Barker) And how many times did this college and NFL legend have to drive drunk and get pulled over in the last fifteen years before he got hauled in on three extremely separate occasions? He's practically a god on the gulf coast. ("it's them sumabitch Barner cops again")
If The University of Alabama does not sever its business ties with such an obvious, potentially felonious cancer such as Kenny Stabler, then it will do nothing less than perpetuate the already rock solid insinuation that The University of BAMA is the poster child for the morally and ethically ass-backward, good-ole-boy Deep South.
Free The Snake...again. And RTR!!!
