    Popular Cleveland DJ Arrested For DUI

    A popular Cleveland radio personality faces charges.

    John Lanigan was arrested Friday night for drunken driving after a minor car accident in the parking lot of Westlake's Dave and Busters' Restaurant, NewsChannel5 reported.

    Officials said the 61-year-old DJ refused to take a Breathalyzer Test.

    Lanigan was released Saturday on personal bond.

    Lanigan and Malone's early morning radio show on WMJI is one of the highest rated in the region

    No, he was not the one. But he is the lead guy on the show with the employess that did (Lanagan, Webster, and Malone Show).

    If I did not know any better, I would say that the Westlake Police must enjoy popping local celebs. In the past weeks they have arrested William Green (Running back, Cleveland Browns) for pot and DUI, his babies' momma for attempted murder (stabbed Green in back), John Lanagan for a DUI, Dick Goddard's(Cleveland Favorite geezer weather man) wife for beating the old man, and Chuck Gialtti (Sports commentator for the Indians) for pot.

    At any rate, I doubt Lanagan or his listeners care about this. Another victimless crime, a bunch of lawer fees, a fine, and some tax payer money.....yet nothing will change.

    1) A minor vehicle accident is not a victimless crime.
    2) The only difference between "victimless" DUI and vehicular manslaughter is luck.
    3) Aggressively arresting people for DUI and making the experience socially and financially painful is the only way I know to attack this huge problem. If "nothing will change" under this system, how do we effect much-needed change?

    Yeah, no one cares, victimless. Talk to MADD about that, or how about remembering Ken Kifer.

    Sorry my post raised eyebrows, but I'm not sure there were enough facts to condemn John Lanagan for suspected DUI. It was reported here locally, that Lanagan did not cause the accident. Refusing to take a breathalyser is the common legal advise given to everyone in Ohio.

    If it bears out in court that he was drunk, then that is a crime and he should be punished accordingly.

    Well not to slight other public personalities or professions, I see Glen Campbell has also been arrested for DUI/hit and run/and assaulting an officer.

    I may be no expert on this, but how exactly does one assess the drunkenness of someone if they refuse to take a breathalyser test?

    It is very difficult. You begin with field sobriety test, but if those are refused and answering questions are refused, it is very difficult.

    The police try to explain what the smelled and how the driver acted, but there is no quantitative evidence.

    Chris, it always takes a normal person like you to ask a simple question. Now all we need are simple answers.

    Lanigan pleaded "not guilty" and will be returning to court in January.

    Why give the option to legally refuse to take a breathalyser test?

    --J

    [edit] Oops, now that I looked into it more carefully it is possible here too. But if you refuse, the police can require that you give a blood sample. The procedure is not optional, it takes more time and is more complicated for you. So most people take the breathalyser test. [/edit]

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    So refresh my memory but Lanigan was around in the 70's WGAR? or something like that. Refusing the test is the first thing a lawyer will tell you in any case not knowing the circumstances I don't feel I should judge (I had a DUI ten years ago) the guy whether he works for Clear Channel or not.

    Dick Goddard is still alive?

    Yep, same guy. He even hosted the "Prize Movie" on 43 for a while.

    Yes, Dick is still alive and doing the weather.

    Captian Penny is dead.

    As long as we are being honest, I had a DUI 13 years ago, but I was set up

    Juha gave that simple answer. Simply do not give someone the opportunity to refuse a test - at least not one carried out by a law-enforcement officer.

    Down here, it is illegal to refuse a breath test, except for medical reasons. If the driver refuses the law assumes he/she is over the limit and they will receive a maximum fine and loss of points.

    CHEERS.

    Now all we need are people in government who give simple answers.
