Drunk Driver Was Dressed To Kill

MAY 22--Meet Kevin Rutkowski. The 23-year-old Wisconsin nitwit was arrested Saturday night and charged with vehicular homicide in connection with a crash on Interstate 39.

Police officers estimated that an inebriated Rutkowski was driving about 100 mph before he slammed his car into a truck driven by David Heffernan. The 57-year-old victim was ejected from his vehicle after it crossed the median and flipped over.

When Marathon County Sheriff's deputies arrested Rutkowski, who fled the accident scene, he was, remarkably, wearing a t-shirt with the phrase "I can't be drunk...I'm still drinking." You'll find a copy of Rutkowski's booking photo at left.

Charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and hit and run resulting in death, Rutkowski is being held in lieu of $50,000 cash bond. He is scheduled to appear in Circuit Court on May 28 for a preliminary hearing. (1 page)

Wow. Now he has to live with himself knowing what he did to this guys family. That's a horrible thing. I don't know how I'd handle that.
People like this get a slap on the wrist too often. Someone who takes my life, your life, everyone's life into their hands when they drive drunk should get severe punishment.
