Colt Brennan's blood-alcohol reading was twice the legal limit

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:14 p.m. HST, Jul 31, 2012

Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan had a blood-alcohol content of 0.17 percent, more than twice the legal limit for driving a vehicle, when police arrested him in Kailua July 25, according to a police report with the state Driver License Revocation Office.

Police stopped Brennan shortly before midnight as he was driving in Kailua. He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and drug possession, and was released July 26 without charges, pending investigation.

The city prosecutor's office will decide whether to charge Brennan after it receives the case from police, a spokesman said.

Agree totally. But then, he still has supporters that say, "everyone makes mistakes." It's NOT a MISTAKE when you KNOWINGLY and INTENTIONALLY get behind the wheel.

Colt was in trouble with the law in Colorado at the University there. Somehow he came to Hawaii. Now he is in trouble with the law for alcohol. If it is in his genes no one can help him , maybe not even himself can help himself.

For Colt Brennan, I pray you seek and receive the Help you need to Turn your Life around for the Greater Good. It goes without saying that you should and hopefully will be Held accountable for your irresponsible actions and decisions. Hopefully this will teach you Vital lessons for your future life. No One should ever be Above the Law, which means that the Hawaii Politicians and all others in those "privledged"elected/selected positions of authority, Must be held by these same Standards. DUI's, Misappropiation of funds, Lying, Stealing, etc. These crimes committed by Elected Officials must not go Unpunished. So all of the people that have harsh words regarding Colt Brennan, use this same energy and focus across the board. Demand Prosecution for All Offenders.

We The People demand equal protection under the law from ALL public safety hazards. Colt is a convicted burglar; that is how June got him here. Colt will be the perfect litmus test for equal protection. Please list other privileged that are pending prosecution so we can equally put our anger to them and Colt. If nobody else is guilty, then Colt deserves all of it. Right?

Let's trade him in the universal loser draft for a law abiding local football celebrity. Bet we could trade Colt for cash and Timmy Chang (waiving the cell phone pass at PearlRidge). They might just throw in all the American Idol losers from Hawaii to sweeten the pot. Segundo, Jasmin, go long....Celebrating failure out of blind loyalty is the thing about our culture that holds us back. Time to treat people as equals and let them pay for their crimes. More chances equals bigger NEXT mistakes.

This guy is a disgrace. His use of alcohol and cocaine while operating a speeding vehicle places citizens in our community in grave danger. He is very fortunate that he was not charged with cocaine possession. I wonder how the packet with cocaine residue ended up in the car he was driving? Too bad he was not administered a blood test to see if he had cocaine in his system. That would probably be illegal without his consent, which he and his lawyer would never permit. Kahuku High School should reconsider his association with the football team as he is a terrible role model to the student athletes there. They really do not need is help. He is just "window dressing " for the team. He should seek out help before he kills someone.
