During the video of the incident, he lies, again and again and again, to the officer claiming he isn’t drunk and hasn’t had anything to drink. He later tested over the legal limit for alcohol.
The police report clearly shows that his license was expired. It also shows that he claims to weigh 175 pounds.
Here’s the report:
And here’s a shot of Mecklenborg taking the field sobriety test:
Bad pants and poorly fitting shirts aside, I’d say Meck probably weighs closer to 250 than 175. Which puts his driver’s license info in the big-fat lie category.
It’s not a huge deal. No one is going to file an ethics complaint about him lying on his driver’s license info. But it does seem worth pointing out that Mecklenborg has a history of lying. And if he’ll lie about something as trivial as his weight, it seems like there’s no limits to his lying.
Speaking of lying without limits, we’re all looking forward to his court date later this month so we can see how well his ‘not guilty’ plea goes over with the court.
My personal guess: “not well”
