A Commack woman was arrested early Thursday and charged with driving while intoxicated on the Southern State Parkway, police said.

I thought you needed to be convicted in this country before they publicly hang you.

whoever wrote this article needs to re-evaluate their choices in what makes a story. you moms need to get a life.. A young girl gets a dwi, woop-de-freakin-HOO! let's alert the media! I came on her to hopefully see any semblance of news and yet not a single article here manages to be beneficially informative. Instead of being real news, every article acts as a platform for jobless mothers to make their voice heard bc their husbands aren't around to listen. Judging from a few of these comments, I can't help but see these comments as a desperate cry for attention while their hubbies are out having affairs with a 21 year old hottie behind their back.
