Man Who Very Nearly Quotes George Thorogood To Cops Arrested For DUI

There's always a right and wrong way to do things, even when you're doing the wrong thing. So when you're parked on the sidewalk a hop, skip, and a jump from an elementary school at 6:20 in the morning with your throbbing skull resting on the steering wheel -- as was the case  recently in the Outer Sunset -- there's still a correct and incorrect way to deal with the cops who awake you from your troubled slumber:

Right: "I was just really broken up at how little I donated to the Police Athletic League this year. I want to give;"

Right: "I thought I was over the 2002 World Series, but I was wrong."

Wrong: "I only drank some beers and shots;"

Yes, that's what the man said. If ever stopped by the police, it's generally a poor idea, for any reason, to essentially quote a George Thorogood song (yes we know "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," was written by John Lee Hooker -- but once Thorogood got his hands on it -- that sealed it).   

The San Francisco man -- who managed to park on the sidewalk near Francis Scott Key elementary school -- failed several sobriety tests and was arrested for drunk driving.

In addition to the alleged DUI, the man lived out another Thorogood tune: "You talk too much."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
