Video: 'Super Drunk' Driver Strikes Cop at Drive-Thru

VIDEO: Mich. Cop Struck at Drive-Thru

A man later declared "super drunk" under Michigan law struck a Pittsfield Township Police officer at a restaurant drive-thru in February.

Police released dash-cam video of the incident from 1:38 p.m. on Valentine's Day to AnnArbor.com.

Robert Addie, 39, had a .25 blood-alcohol level when he swiped the officer while pulling out of a Burger King drive-thru. Police were called to the restaurant because Addie and another man in a 2003 Ford Taurus were causing a disturbance.

Addie was sentenced to 2-5 years of prison last week. Addie had four previous drunk-driving convictions.

Shouldn't the headline be "Courts Let Down the Citizens AGAIN!" 4 previous convictions and still gets a slap on the hand. Wow! Our system is built to rehabilitate. Court system is working well isn't it.

Does Michigan have a felony habitual offender statute? He should have gone to away for a while on the fourth incident.

Not a good idea to take your patrol car to a drive - thru, because you have a line of stopped cars in front of you and a line of cars stopped behine you. What if you have to respond code 3 ? Looks like he was a sitting duck for this drunk driver.
