If you were pulled over for driving drunk, I don’t think you would expect any mercy from the law. Your absolute best case scenario, would be spending the night in jail, and facing heavy financial penalties for your crime. But just like every other crime, when a cop does it, the same rules and consequences don’t necessarily apply.
On October 16th, Officer Danielle Branes received a call from a movie theater employee, claiming that a drunk man was about to drive home from the parking lot. That man was Deputy Jim Porter, who instead of having his life completely ruined, was treated with kid gloves and was even offered a ride home (which he refused). Here’s how the whole incident went down according to several body camera clips.
Despite driving home drunk, and even admitting that he was drunk, he wasn’t arrested. They didn’t even give him a breathalyzer or field sobriety test. Instead of being called out for endangering the lives of other motorists, he gets an apology. And who knows what transpired between his fellow officers when the body camera was turned off? Just as it’s obvious that Officer Porter was drunk and broke the law, it’s pretty obvious that his peers are conspiring to keep him on the force, and out of jail.
