So I went on a little rant when Tank Johnson was let go basically for a speeding ticket. I felt that there was not enough to charge him because he was not legally intoxicated. Blood tests are used when either the person is not cooperating and refusing a breath test…or when the cops are really reaching and throwing out a last ditch effort. Johnson was said to have been cooperative so with all the information given it was my belief they were reaching. I WAS RIGHT! (For those not in the know…I know Tank was drinking. It does not take much at all to hit a .072)
Tank Johnson’s blood alcohol level was below the legal limit when the former Chicago Bears tackle was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving June 22.
Johnson’s blood alcohol level was .072, under the presumptive limit in Arizona of .08 percent, police Sgt. Andrew Duncan said Monday. No charges have been filed pending results of a completed investigation.
Like I said before, Tank Johnson was essentially cut for going 40 mph in a 25 mph zone. I’m guessing that there was not a no tolerance with drinking in any agreement with he and the Bears or they would have mentioned it when they let him go to further make them look in the right. Don’t get me wrong, he was their property and they could do as they please. I think they look stupid though.
