The Woodward family may need to add a keg to their family crest. Three members of the family — Nicholas (right), 19, Joshua (left), 22 and father Brian, 46 — were all arrested on the same day in Vermont on separate incidents of driving under the influence. Perhaps we could call this an intervention for the family? The successive arrests occurred when family members allegedly drove drunk to the scene of an accident involving the first family member.
The drunken chain reaction began when a Vermont Fish and Wildlife Game Warden found a car rolled over around 7:50 p.m. Police found that the driver, Joshua Woodward, had a BAL of about three times the legal limit. After that crash, Joshua’s young brother Nicolas drove to the scene and exited the truck to check on his brother. His father, Brian, then slipped over to the driver’s seat. The warden believed Brian was impaired and ordered him to stop. He was found also to have a BAL that was three times the limit. As troopers arrested Brian however they say that the observed Nicholas drinking intoxicating beverages. He was then arrested as well.
This was the second DUI for Nicholas as well as Joshua. Joshua was also charged with driving with a suspended license.
