Tennessee State Democratic Rep Arrested For DUI, Vandalism, Full-On Meth-Tweakin' Insanity
Update: Video Added!

Reason he was weaving in and out of lanes? His SUV has a wide stance.

I hope he gets Al Gore Jr.'s lawyer, because he's going to need it:

video of the arrest of House Judiciary Chairman Rob Briley over the weekend shows the Nashville Democrat alternately berating police and breaking down in sobs.

At one point a profane Briley asked officers to take him out to the woods and shoot him in the head.


Briley called the officer a Nazi and a brownshirt, then sang the first line of "Springtime For Hitler" from the Mel Brooks movie and musical "The Producers."

The video is not yet available, or at least I couldn't find it; let me know if you do.

Incidentally, he was arrested for vandalism after being released on the DUI -- cops found later he had done about a thousand bucks' worth of damage to the back of their cruiser trying to kick out the glass when he was left there alone.

So, let me answer the questions liberals want to ask:

Are you saying the arrest of a psychotic state rep means the war in Iraq is won?

Yes. And...?

The Vid:

It takes a while for the howling and sobbing to begin. Then it gets pretty good.

Thanks so much to SarahW.

Update: Actually, when confronted with the actual human suffering rather than just dryly reading about it, it's not as funny as I first thought.

It's far funnier.

No, really, it's not funny at all. I take no delight in this at all.

Well, some. But who's counting?

I'd have more sympathy if he didn't fall into the default whine about it being "Nazi, Germany" when someone's pulled over for driving in jerk-eyed meth cyclone.
