I'm confused; he wasn't driving. He may be an idiot but at least he wasn't found driving while drunk.

I believe the law is if the keys are in the ignition, whether the car is running or not, you can be charged with DWI. So give the guy a little credit for sleeping off his stupor but next time take the keys out of the ignition. Which brings up a question - how do they handle the cars that now have the push button start ???
