Dustin Johnson Pleads Guilty
By mustang6560 on 2/15/11
Dustin Johnson plead guilty to a reckless driving stemming from a drunken-driving charge back in 2009. His original DUI charge was reduced for "evidentiary issues" so he only had to pay a $445 fine.
Assistant Horry County prosecutor Paul Taylor says the 26-year-old Johnson was fined $445 last week after charges were reduced because of evidentiary issues.I am not going to be the first to cast the first stone, but I hope Dustin is through with this part of his life. He's proved he has the talent to be a PGA superstar, however, he's not convinced me he has the brain for it. In modern sports, raw talent alone not longer wins. You have to be a smart, hard-working person who learns to stay out of trouble.

I wonder if he was aware that he was on Myrtle Beach. There's a joke in there somewhere. Kurt?

Dustin Johnson walks into a bar....
Ahhh...got to love Celeb justice. I like DJ, but if it were a regualr joe like me that got stopped: I would be picking up trash on the HWY, lost my DL for at least 6 months, and would have a heck of time getting Car Insurance.
Dustin Johnson walked into a bar.......You would think he'd have seen it.
tell me this isn't so, Dustin?
cops in Horry County are the worst. I lived there for 6 years. Dustin went to my college, Coastal Carolina. Maybe this is why he had to leave Hawaii?
So Dustin Johnson walks into a bar after a round of golf and sits down at a table opposite a flashily dressed blonde who says to him" I'm a hooker" and he says "well, if you turn your hands on the shaft a little bit to the left... you'll tend more towards a slice.
South Carolina is notorious for letting people out of DUIs. There are so many loopholes in the laws that it's ridiculous. That being said, this is not different than a pretrial intervention in that someone with a "clean" record gets a second chance.
I'm aware of his troubles as a teenager, but I am convinced that he has put that part of his life behind him and will be much more cautious in his decision making moving forward.
