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.

Johnson's black sport utility vehicle was pulled in Horry County near Myrtle Beach in March 2009.

According to the South Carolina Court Administration, Johnson's bail at the time of his arrest was about $2,200. That is consistent with a person with a blood-alcohol level of 0.16 percent or greater. A person is considered too drunk to drive at a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent.
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?

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?

I'll bite...

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.
