I was charged with DUI by a small township PD a long time a go.  When asked if I had anything to drink, I told him I was on my way home from a class reunion where I consumed 2 beers over 3 hours with a full meal. The officer was also aware that I was a police officer. The field BAC confirmed my story with a reading of .005, yet I was placed in handcuffs and transported to their station.  My car was towed and contents inventoried, and impounded. THEN, I was administered the official BAC test at the station.  The results reconfirmed the field test (.005) and I was willing to take a blood test to prove I was not under the influence of any chemical agent. The officer apologized and stated that everyone claims they've had 2 beers. I was not able to drive my car since it was impounded and was not available until the next day. All charges were subsequently dropped but the humiliation, inconvenience, and costs can never be recovered. I suspect the arresting officer could not relate or sense brotherhood with a non-Caucasian police officer and chose this opportunity to make his statement that all would be treated equally under the law. There are many good officers but there is the hillbilly racist element that ruins the image for this often thankless profession.

I am not in the mind of Mike Mitchell nor was I a coach of Ohio States linebackers, but I remember specifically that M Mitchell stated prior to committing that he had no intention of red shirting. I am conjecturing that MM did not appreciate OSU using the preseason light injury as a pretext for keeping out for the entire season. If Fickell actually communicated with the  few linebackers under his tutelage, then the team would have been appraised of this grave concern. I think MM would have stayed with the team in spite of his father's health concerns. I am curious to see what his brother decides to do.  If he stays with OSU, it will lend credence to my argument.
