Trib: Frank Coonelly charged with DUI

The pertinent details are here. In short, he got a DUI shortly before Christmas, he’s ashamed, and Bob Nutting is disappointed. It seems like Coonelly is willing to accept the consequences for his actions and it seems like Nutting is willing to stand behind him. I don’t really have a lot to add: I’m sure that the significant portion of the fanbase that dislikes Coonelly will villify him for this and in this case he’ll certainly deserve it. All I really feel comfortable saying myself is that from the details Coonelly gave of the incident (he turned the wrong way up an HOV lane on the Parkway North), it seems to me that this could’ve had a distinctly more tragic ending and I hope this is something he can learn from.

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
