Thankfully he didn't kill someone like the NFL player. Still no excuse for DUI'ing, especially when you're a professional athlete whom people look up to.

I'm sorry, and I don't mean to defend him, but Stallworth had a low BAA, low enough that it probably shouldn't even be "over the limit" and the guy he "killed" walked into a high traffic, high speed, highway at 7am, when Stallworth was coming home the NEXT morning... not so cut and dry... I'm not saying he was not at fault at all, but it's not like he was 100% at fault...

I've never hit a person with my car before. On the other hand, I've also never been hit by a car either, so I'd have to say they both f***ed up.

Go in. Do your time. Move on. Just like the rest of us.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

I wonder if he'll clear waivers when he doesn't make the team during training camp?

In the US, a prison is a state or federal facility which holds those who have been sentenced to a term of a year or more for a felony. Jail is local to the area, where those who have sentences of less than a year are held, as well as those awaiting criminal trials.

I can't think of a better place for people who get pulled over for a DUI to go. Drunks belong in a bar, or at home, not on the road.

Yeah, drunks on the road make me have to swerve to avoid hitting them. They should watch where they are walking.

Tent City

Sounds like he's going to enjoy his stay. :P

It’s pink underwear, pink bracelets and pink blankets under a hot Arizona sun for Nikolai Khabibulin come Saturday.

The Oilers netminder will check into Maricopa County’s jail system under the infamous Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who bills himself as America’s toughest sheriff. There, he will spend 15 days in Tent City Jail — a prison yard filled with hundreds of Korean War military tents that are home to 1,600 inmates.

The jail is part of Arpaio’s no-frills, no-nonsense system that sees each inmate fed two square meals for a cost to taxpayers of only a dollar a day.

“There will be no coffee, no salt, no cigarettes, no porno, no movies,” Arpaio said.

“The only television we give them is the weather channel, so they can see how hot it is.”

The coming weekend is forecast to be a sweltering 41 C, even hotter under the thick canvas tents.

That will be tough for the goalie, who drops eight to 12 pounds of sweat on the ice during a game.

Khabibulin will also have to shave off his long, hockey locks to conform to the jail’s grooming policy, which specifies all inmates have conservative hairstyles with short sideburns. There are also no playoff beards allowed, and inmates can only sport the Sidney Crosby moustache that doesn’t extend past the corners of the mouth.

Inside, the netminder will wear Arpaio’s signature pink boxers — an anti-theft measure brought in after inmates took to smuggling white boxers out of jail to sell — and an old-school black and white striped jumpsuit.

He isn’t the first sports star to spend time at chateau Arpaio. Both former NBA star Charles Barkley and fighter Mike Tyson served stints in Maricopa County, and, as the sheriff decrees, they serve time like everybody else.

“Just because you play hockey, you’re not going to get a plush separate room,” Arpaio said. “He’s going to live with everybody else in the tents.”

Tent city was Arpaio’s cheap and easy answer to overcrowding in county jails. Rather than continuing to release inmates back into the general public, Arpaio obtained surplus military tents, figuring if it was good enough for soldiers, it would suit inmates just fine. An electrified fence with two watchtowers surrounds the tent compound, which was built in 1993 beside an existing stone-walled jail.

Arpaio said tent city prisoners are screened beforehand to weed out violent convicts and troublemakers so they aren’t housed there. And while there’s no facilities for Khabibulin to exercise, should he misbehave, Arpaio said the goaltender could find himself working community labour on a chain gang.

“He will be safe as long as he behaves himself,” he said. “I didn’t cause him to be arrested, I didn’t do that. I’m just running the hotel.”

And while Khabibulin can’t save himself from the heat, he can look forward to the sheriff’s special anniversary party August 3, where Arpaio said he will gladly give the netminder a slice of cake to celebrate 18 years of tent city.
