They don't think they'll get caught. But they always do, and get away with it.

Huh? He hasn't got away with it. He was caught. He has also admitted wrongdoing and apologized for it, unlike Patrick Kennedy who was given no breathalizer and a police escort home and got off by blaming it all on Ambien.

What Fosella did was wrong, but I respect his admitting his guilt before getting a sweet plea bargain.

It takes a real man to admit he was wrong. Ché faccia bella!

Same reason actors and actresses dont ! They get paid to be scene and photographed in the car.
For example Paris Hilton get's paid to drive a dealers Bently + a bonis every time its seen in a tabloid.
If they do get a DWI the car is not theirs so the cops cant confiscate it.
Besides The citys not gonna confiscate there own cars.

They just want the $$ made by these expensive fines and drinker-driver programs.
DWI and DWAI is a slam dunk $$$ making deal
