As I always say, there’s never an excuse to drive under the influence. I love beer as much as the next guy, but I’m not going to hop behind the wheel after a few too many.
Mark Few makes a ton of money as Gonzaga’s basketball coach, and he has more than enough resources to get a driver or an Uber.
When you drive drunk, you’re putting everyone on the road at risk.

Now, he’ll pay a fine that is the equivalent of pocket change to him, do some community service and sit out a game.
I think it’s very fair to say that he has gotten off very easy.
Update: As part of his guilty plea to DUI, Gonzaga coach Mark Few will have to pay a $1,000 fine, do 24 hours of community service and have an ignition interlock installed in his car until January 2023.
