As if to prove the point of my last post about the pervasiveness of Drinking and Driving in the New York metropolitan area, I just came across the article about a prominent New York Attorney, Albert Gaudelli getting arrested in Queens for DWI.
What particularly caught my attention about this case is that he was apparently drinking at a party hosted by Queens District Attorney Richard Brown who will now be responsible for prosecuting Mr. Gaudelli. In addition, if you read the article, you will see that Mr. Gaudelli, a prominent criminal attorney in New York, also tried to escape from the police by backing away and hitting a police car in the process.
Many of you may remember Albert Gaudelli as the attorney who represented Nicholas “Fat Nick” Minucci in the Howard Beach, New York hate crime trial.
Interesting that a trained criminal defense attorney felt it was better to try to evade the police than to attempt to fight these charges in Court.
