Briggs did not address a TV station's report that he had visited two Chicago clubs before the crash, although the owner of one - Level - said he was not there.

"He comes here frequently, but he was not here the night of the car accident," Mike Bloem said.

Gutierrez reiterated Tuesday that "it's undetermined" if alcohol was involved and said, "We're not pursuing that at this point."

Briggs' attorney Frank Himel said he wasn't sure how his client would plead. He also said he was not sure where Briggs had been or if he had been drinking.

"I never asked him any of these questions," Himel said. "If I did, I don't know how he could answer those questions."

No other cars were involved in the incident and no one was with Briggs, he said.

I think that's the deal there. He just wrecked a $300,000 car, and while he left the scene, it looks like he did call the cops.

given the time of day and the circumstances of the "accident", there's a pretty good chance that he had been drinking. everyone knows the best way to beat a drunk driving rap is to not be there when the cops arrive.

my points are this, did he luck out and not kill someone this time? absolutely. should that be good enough? no.

riggs was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, a misdemeanor, and was given traffic citations for failure to give immediate notice of an accident and improper lane usage, when he met with police on Monday afternoon.
if it was you or me would it have been acceptable for us to meet with police the following afternoon? i don't know about there, but here, they would make every effort to have you in custody immediately.

if i'm average joe, heading to work in the wee hours of the morning, how this was handled isn't giving me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

in the words of my favorite caveman,  what? what does the fact that he wrecked an expensive car have to do with anything? are you saying that he has already been punished enough?

and he called the cops 45 minutes after THEY found the car. i have never seen the term "around" used so much when quoting the police. usually its "we rolled upon the vehicle in question at 3:11 am"

Illinois State Police said they have no record of Briggs reporting a stolen vehicle. They did say that Briggs placed a 9-1-1 call at around 4 a.m. Monday, after initially saying he did not call police until sometime between 8 a.m. and 9.

But Master Sgt. Luis Gutierrez said Briggs gave "no indication of his car being stolen" during either call.

Illinois police found the abandoned vehicle, which had hit a light pole and a concrete bridge support, alongside the Edens Expressway on the city's North Side around 3:15 a.m.

I don't doubt that he was 'Probably' drunk, but there's no way they can charge him with anything but what they did.

I just don't think this is that big a deal.
