Police say man was drunk when he was pushing son in stroller

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A South Charleston man is charged with putting his child in danger by walking him in a baby stroller along a busy roadway while under the influence of alcohol.

Kanawha Deputy J.R. Hatfield was dispatched to the Go-Mart convenience store in Jefferson Sunday when concerned store clerks called police after a man purchased beer in the store with a small child in tow, deputies said.

Witnesses at the store told Hatfield the man, later identified as Richard Lee Craddock, 30, of Kentucky Street, left pushing a baby stroller carrying his 4-year-old son eastbound along U.S. 60, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.

Craddock was spotted pushing the stroller on the north side of the roadway. As the deputy got closer, the man crossed the five-lane road to the south side with the stroller and the child inside, the complaint said.

Deputies stopped the man and questioned him, the complaint said. A preliminary breath test showed Craddock's blood-alcohol level to be .167, twice the legal limit, according to the complaint.

Deputies could not comment on where the child has been placed.

Craddock was charged with felony child neglect creating the risk of injury and is being held at South Central Regional Jail.


Whats the big deal? The guy wasn't driving. He was walking down the street pushing his child in a stroller? You can't even do that anymore?

Darts update Week 4

We started the week in 3rd place just 2 points out of first. Early in the night we were looking like we were going to rack up a huge amount of points and climb into 1st place. We played well in the 601's and the cricket matches and jumped out to a 4-1 lead. Unfortunately as last week proved, the tide can turn quickly in the singles matches. In week 3 we went from a 5-1 deficit to a 6-5 victory and tonight we did the opposite and found a way to squander a 4-1 lead to lose 6-5.
After throwing away a bunch of close singles games MW stepped up to stop the bleeding in the second to last match to tie it up at 5-5. I failed to win the final match which would have sealed the victory for us and we ended the night down 6-5. We should still be in good position to secure a playoff spot, but we must work hard to come in 1st place to secure a bye.


Anyway, here are a few of the memorable statements made during the night. Again, keep in mind that I only hear a small percentage of the BS that is said during the match! While some of these statements may seem funny in this forum you gotta witness them live to get the true context and comedic value.

  • I wore my lucky underwear today.
  • No one over 40 has silk boxers.
  • Who smuggles drugs (coke stuffed up their ass) into Jamaica and then offers it up to their friends?
  • The best 3 darts Foley threw all night were 2 on the floor and 1 off my shin.
  • I can't believe Jeff beat us all to the 'White men cant jump' lines when DW was stretching before his dart match.
  • We may all hate Gary but apparently someone loves him because he is getting married.
  • I could build my own dining room table and I'll build one for you for less than $400.
  • I don't shit drunk! I'm working too hard in there to do it with a buzz on.

Next week we are at home against the Centre Bar. I hope to see you all there!

Hello World!

To steal a line from the great (in many ways) Tiger Woods...
"Hello World!"

Like many of you, I have enjoyed reading DW's blog on a regular basis. The fantasy football updates (who is wearing the dress this year?), things I've learned this weekend, the Smiddy updates, the food contests, the Pub Crawl announcements, and of course the many 'Lists', etc.

Some of you may remember I ran a very successful blog a few years ago and at the time it seemed like fun. Unfortunately, some people took it a little too seriously so I decided to shut it down. Wanting to get back into the creative writing mode, I asked The King of Booze to give me a password so I could share with his readers some of the funny stuff that happens on Tuesday nights. So without further adieu, here we go...

On Tuesday nights a group of 5-8 guys get together to have a few beers, throw a few darts and compete in the Minute Man Dart League. http://www.mmdl.org/ The talent level on our team on ranges from 4-8 on a scale from 1-10 but we somehow find a way to win most of our matches. Tonight is a perfect example of that considering we were down 5-1 early and somehow came back to win the last 5 matches to end up with a 6-5 victory. Go figure??? Anyway, here is a quick breakdown of this weeks matches:

2 games of 3 player 601 double in - double out (1-1)
3 games of 2 player cricket points (0-3)
6 matches (best 2 of 3) singles 301 double in - double out (5-1)

6-5 Victory!

As we are in week 3 of the season, I wont waste time filling you in with details about the first 2 weeks other than to say we were tied for 1st place with 15 of 22 possible points after week 2.

A quick recap of Week #3:

We lost too many close matches early and were looking like we were going to get smoked until Jeb pulled out a nice victory in his singles match to set the tone for the rest of the night. Jeff, and Supa P followed suit and despite Crazy Bob looking like he was going to go winless for the entire season, he stepped up to also get a win. I'll give him extra credit for playing considering he was in a car accident earlier this evening. I closed out the night beating a pretty good player who after the match in a fit of rage threw a few chairs around the bar. We could have taken all 3 cricket games, but we always struggle against teams that love to point. (Could be time to rethink our strategy) The 2 601's were a toss up and could have gone either way but unfortunately they hit the key darts in the end.

Each week I'll try to remember some of the funny one liners that come from having too much down time between matches and way too many beers. Keep in mind that I only hear about 50% of the BS banter and my memory sucks so if you have nothing to do on a Tuesday night and you are looking for a few laughs, feel free to drop by!
This weeks interesting statements:
  • What's a Falcon Punch? That's awesome, I just made it my new screen saver!
  • Parking at the Banshee in a snowstorm really sucks.
  • Can you get away with punching a girl for rear-ending you?
  • Halls medicine tastes like the smell of cat piss.
  • I was at home trying to get a BJ and it wasn't happening so I came to darts instead.

We are at Peggy's next week for a home match against the St. Marks Post.

Until then...Prez

Olympic break

In September I had my NHL season preview(here is a refresher).

http://www.drunknothings.com/2009/09/nhl-kick-off.html

Here is what I said then:

Playoff bound from the East - Boston, Carolina, Montreal, New Jersey, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington.

Playoff bound from the West - Anaheim, Calgary, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, St. Louis, San Jose, and Vancouver.

Here are the current standings of the teams that are currently in the playoffs:

EASTERN
Washington
New Jersey
Ottawa
Pittsburgh
Buffalo
Philadelphia
Boston
Montreal

6 out of 8 aint so bad. I didn't expect Buffalo and the Sens to do this well.

WESTERN
San Jose
Chicago
Vancouver
Phoenix
Los Angeles
Colorado
Nashville
Calgary

4 out of 8 isn't as good as my Eastern picks but hell I'll take it. Who knew that the Kings, Coyotes, Avalanche or the Predators would be this good? I don't think I could name 5 players total between them four teams.
I can not believe the Red Wings are this bad.

I have Boston vs Washington and San Jose vs Calgary with the winners moving on to the Stanley Cup.
This could still happen but man oh man it is not looking promising.

Snows coming

It is going to snow tomorrow. So I can't wait till the summer gets here:









Presidents day

I remember back in the day when we had Washington's and Lincoln's birthday off. I am pretty sure some bureaucrat decided that was too much time off. Now they rolled them into one day - Presidents day. Happy Presidents day.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. William J Smiddy actually got shot down this weekend. This is a 1st for him.
2. Barlow has pretty good food and a nice vibe.
3. Jeffrey is upset that Smiddy blew him off on his birthday.
4. Mark Welch is rocking a AAA gold member card.
5. This sums up Jeffreys birthday pretty well:

6. Beers at the Bell n hand $5.25. Beers at the Golden Banana $6.50. I mean really?
7. The Fours has half priced pizza after 10 pm.
8. Smiddy always wants a 3 way (mother daughter) with Joanna Kerns and Tracey Gould from Growing Pains.

9. Apparently Jeffrey wears moose knuckle jeans because he got his junk stuck in some piece of sheet metal at work. He now has a scar on his junk, that he will show you for $5.00.
10. Funniest thing I overheard this weekend - "Hello, is your name Officer Smiddy?"
11. Handstand offs between strippers and waitresses are not for the faint of heart.
12. I guess every piece of candy the bathroom attendant give you is worth a $1.00.
13. Valentines day is a joke.
