If you've ever watched WKRP in Cincinnati, you've might have seen the episode where they bring in a patrolman to show the effects of alcohol on people.

They test their reactions to show how much slower they get when you're drinking.

Venus Flytrap is so lit by the end of the show he thinks he's at a racetrack. But, Johnny Fever, who's natural skittish, keeps getting faster the more he drinks.

I'm surprised they don't ban this episode. People will think that they're like Johnny Fever. Sorry, no one is like Johnny Fever. (He's not real).

This is a long winded way of saying don't drink and drive.

A Fort Hood soldier, Cassandra Julianne Perez, 19, was standing next to her stalled car when she was struck and killed.

Today Edward Leo Magallan, 25, went before a judge Saturday and was charged with intoxication manslaughter.

He chose to drink and drive, allegedly, and now two lives have been changed forever.

Now the man believed responsible for the death of an active duty service member has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.

CBS 4 News is reporting that Magallan's bond was set at $150,000. And he has to be alcohol free at all times. That includes carrying a portable hand device breathalyzer.
