Woman suspected of DUI after driving on SMART train tracks

The Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit system temporarily ground to a halt Saturday after a Santa Rosa motorist suspected of driving under the influence veered off the road and onto the SMART train tracks north of Rohnert Park Expressway, officials said.

According to Rohnert Park Police, 23-year-old Tyra Ingalls said she was driving west on Rohnert Park Expressway when another unidentified vehicle began swerving, causing her to leave the roadway.

Ingalls’ car came to rest 70 feet down the train tracks, stuck parallel with one of the rails.

SMART officials were on the scene at the time of the incident, police said, and halted all train service as a tow truck removed the car from the tracks. No passengers were put at risk during the incident. 

An investigation determined that Ingalls was driving under the influence of alcohol or another controlled substance, with a blood-alcohol level of .263 percent — three times the legal limit, police said.

Nick Nolte has been taking GHB ‘for four years’

Nick Nolte has been taking GHB 'for four years'

Nick Nolte has been taking the date rape drug GHB for “four years”.

The 76-year-old actor – who starred in ’48 Hours’ alongside Eddie Murphy – was arrested in 2002 for driving under the influence of alcohol and the drug, but he’s now admitted to being a regular user of the narcotic.

The actor said: “I’ve been taking GHB for four years and I’ve never been raped.

Despite checking into rehab, the actor continued drinking on and off until he stopped for good.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, he explained: “Now I can have drink and stop, but I used to fill the gaps between adrenaline rushes with booze and drugs.”

While starring in acclaimed director Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’, the actor was unable to remember a line for the first 10 days.

Recalling the surreal experience, Nick said: “I started so high that I couldn’t remember a line for the first 10 days.

“And Ang came up and said ‘do you think it’s time we string two words together?’ And I said ‘just about’.”

Nick – who has a 31-year-old son called Brawley with his third wife Rebecca Linger and a nine-year-old daughter by his current wife Clytie Lane – also confessed being famous can make people feel lonely.

He shared: “Fame is a parenthesis you live in and when you die they close those parentheses.

“Then you get a real definition of who you were. It’s living under the spotlight. Your mistakes are going to be seen and then they’ll be glorified in not a positive way.

“It’s a lonelier kind of life than I think anonymity is. It also teaches you how much privacy is valued and how much it is really what the citizens of the world would prefer to have rather than constantly being scrutinised by cameras and questions.”

Class 4 felony

My son received a DUI on 8-16-2006, DWAI in July 2017 and again 7-17-2017 which has not gone to court yet. If convicted does the Class 4 felony apply?

Yes, if he is prosecuted and convicted as such.

WALKS INTO A BAR… BASEMENT CHALLENGE

Three men walk into a bar. The barman tells them, “If you can sit in my basement for a day, I’ll give you free beer forever.”

The first man walks out after five minutes and says, “It’s impossible, you got a swarm of flies in there.”

So the second man tries his luck, but can’t take more than an hour.

Finally, the third man goes down. When he returns a day later, the others ask him how he did it.

He says, “Easy! I took a dump in one corner and sat in the other corner!”
