| O-T Lounge|| Legal Question-- Consequences of skipping town on a DWI. - mikelbr on 2/19/14 at 2:27 pm|
If someone got a DWI in BR and then moved away to another state, what can/will be done by BRPD to bring that person back here to face justice?
Even if not extradited to face judge, will it go on their record if said person applies for jobs around the country?
Does that warrant ever expire?

Does this course really make runners turn around after 8k at top of overpass, run back down, and then under the bridge? Kind of odd and clumsy IMO.
I gather something happened last year but why didn't they just make the course go ...

Also, is the new principal Matt Moscona's brother? Name is Brian Moscona and went to CHS from the bio on the site. Looks like a good guy to run the school from credentials. :cheers:
