As always, Graham has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and we should all be incredibly grateful that’s the system we live in.

However, if he’s guilty of driving while under the influence, he should be ashamed of himself for making such an idiotic decision.

Nobody enjoys having a few beers more than I do, but I’m never hopping behind the wheel of a car. It’s not worth it. There is no upside and the downsides could change your life forever in the worst ways.

Get a driver, stay with a friend or walk home after you’ve had a bit too much to drink. Whatever you do, don’t drive!

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of what happened and deal with it accordingly!
