Great intentions ... lousy implementation ...
I hope the case gets dismissed by the judge but realistically the guy with the paint ball gun showed pretty bad judgment.
OK, how would you stop a drunk that is determined to drive?
Depends on circumstances ...
If the guy was already in the car trying to start it (not clear from the link in the OP) then the situation was already well on the way to being out of control.
Physically blocking the car would often be a safer approach, depending on circumstances. Calling a cab would be an alternative before the guy got into the car. Or maybe even afterwards. Confiscating car keys before he got to the car might be safer than shooting paint ball rounds.
There is too little information in that brief news article to make any firm conclusions.
jack the drive wheels off the ground
leave it up on blocks. Tell him his transmission is shot when he realizes he goes nowhere, and give him a ride home.
Kennewick Man lives !!
This may be the ultimate nutty news day story. As noted hope he gets off with a warning, but as Diana says, what else do you do if the guy's already in the car and is trying hopelessly to fit the key into that pesky little hole that seems to keep moving?
glue something over the keyhole, lol.
super glue it, sets up quick. Put your lockbar on his steering wheel. Pop the hood and pull the plug wires. Give him the wrong set of keys, that should be good for some laughs.
RE: or safe.
nothing worse than a drunk driver unless it's a drunk driver with paint on his windshield.
