On February 5, 2017, following the 51st Super Bowl game, a man who authorities came to believe was driving under the influence of alcohol was involved in a hit-and-run accident when his vehicle made impact with a bicyclist. He reportedly drove off quickly without stopping after the incident took place.

An investigation to locate the perpetrator of the accident, which occurred in Laguna Niguel, was opened by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Their findings led them to believe that the person responsible for the event was 53-year-old Timothy Anthony Cronin.

As a part of their year-long inspection of the evidence, authorities collected statements from people who had been in his presence that day, and those interrogated informed deputies that Cronin, a proclaimed New England Patriots fan, was allegedly intoxicated on Super Bowl Sunday in 2017. Investigators surmised that Cronin was on his way home from a celebration and under the influence when the accident took place.

On Tuesday afternoon in Warren County, Kentucky, a school bus driver was involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle eleven minutes after dropping off the last of the 25 middle school and high school passengers on his route. He was suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol.

As stated in the police report, Warren County Public School bus driver Robert Marlette made impact with a Dodge truck traveling in the opposite direction as the bus at 4:01 p.m. When the sheriff’s department arrived at the scene a deputy spoke with the driver of the truck, and he claimed Marlette was driving the school bus down the center of the road when it crashed into him.

A deputy interviewing Marlette reported that the accused had bloodshot eyes and smelled of liquor. After a preliminary breath test showed positive results, he was issued a standard field sobriety test which he failed. Marlette was arrested and taken to the hospital for medical clearance, and while there he consented to a blood draw.
