    i hate that no name is ever released. I do not even want to hear about it unless they release names.

    Just for clarity’s sake, this driver was not charged with drunk driving.

    Disqualified does not mean drunk. No names should be released until facts are confirmed. It’s very difficult to undo what’s already spread through media.
    First point being you can’t even correctly read an article without commenting in negative facts. Imagine if a name was released what rumors could be tied to the person.
