Officers arrested him for refusing to submit to testing, driving with a revoked license and on suspicion of being a habitual drunk driver.

Are you seriously reporting a DUI arrest as news? Well, I guess it's not April Fool's yet, so it looks like you actually think this is a serious news report. Give me a break. I see people getting booked on DUI on all the time. Report some real news.

Company should be just as guilty for not even checking if this guy had a license, and allowing this idiot to drive their vehicle.

Hopefully a judge with some cajones slams this guy once and for all and gives him a decent jail sentence since habitual DUI is a class C felony.

Allegedly refused? It's either or! It's shown that revoking a license doesn't prevent someone from driving again! Should have stiffer penalties for habituals but then again criminals have 40 plus convictions and they're still running in the streets!
