Grand Old Police Blotter: Too Drunk To Duck Edition

This is the best Holiday Season ever. And Atrios has gotten me just what I wanted for the Holidays:

Hoosier Edward Bruce Tinsley, creator of the conservative comic strip Mallard Fillmore, was arrested in Columbus Dec. 4 and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence -- his second alcohol-related arrest in less that four months, according to the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department.

Tinsley, 48, who lives in Columbus, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.14 -- almost twice the level at which an Indiana driver is considered intoxicated. He posted $755 bond. On Aug. 26, Tinsley was arrested for public intoxication, according to the sheriff's department.

The right-wing tosspot knows all about the dangers of drunk driving; in fact, it's a running gag for him:

Perhaps Tinsley was endangering the lives of others in solidarity with his idol, Mel.

And it looks like Tinsley's liquored lawyered up already.

Kudos to the Bartholmew County Sheriff's Department for keeping Indiana safe.

Update: Damn, Nicole Richie beat me to the punch.
