      Hate to break it to ya Rod but B.H.P.D has been giving dui suspects a ride home for years, I know this because i was given that ride myself when I was 19 I’m now 28. It is odd and believe I was surprised and confused when I was dropped off in the parking lot of the apartment complex I was living at at the time.
