That happened 15 or so months ago. He was over the limit so should lose his license for a while, although I have no idea what the laws are down there.
His attorney is trying to say the police had no reason to pull him over in the first place. What a load of crap. The guy was nearly 2 times over the legal limit so I'm sure he may have been a little unsteady behind the wheel.
McNair also used the classic, "Do you know who I am" line when the police pulled him over. The officer simply replied, "Yes."
Not that I know anything about the law, but wouldn't a video be the same as a police report, i.e. Public record? TV stations and newspapers get their hands on police reports and criminal historys all the time.
A great example would be Court TV's thesmokinggun.com All kinds of good stuff on that site.
I doubt it is illegal.
If I'm not mistaken, didn't McNair also have a handgun in his car as well?

[b] I believe he had a permit for the gun (and I don't blame him for having a weapon) but it was concealed and that isn't legal.
not quite gainzo...
he had a weapon- legal
it was concealed- legal
he had a permit to carry it concealed- legal
BUT.....he was driving under the influence and had a legal gun in his possession while he was intoxicated and the gun then became illegal to possess while intoxicated and that is what the gun charge was about
