The veteran news anchor, Sam Donaldson, started his month with a day in jail after being arrested for driving under the influence.

According to recent news reports, the ABC news veteran was initially pulled over by police on December 1 for a traffic violation. Subsequently, the apprehending office determined that Donaldson was impaired; therefore, he was given a field sobriety test which he failed.

Consequently, he was taken to a police station wherein he was booked but was later released. So far, no details are yet released regarding how he was released.

Further reports claimed that law enforcement officers told media sources that Donaldson has been cooperative during his arrest.

Incidentally, the 78-year-old Donaldson was one of the prestigious news anchors of ABC. He started his career with the giant broadcasting network back in 1967 until present. Donaldson was the network’s chief White House correspondent twice and later became a co-anchor of the same network’s Sunday program ‘This Week’.

Apparently, in his years in service, the veteran newsman has gone too far this time. Nevertheless, a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer here hopes that he does not consider his recent arrest as one of his achievements.

Generally, driving alone provides greater chances of being injured in a vehicle accident than in a natural disaster. Therefore, when you combine driving and alcohol intake, your chances of being injured or killed is significantly higher. For this reason, a veteran Los Angeles personal injury lawyer reiterates the age-old adage: do not drink and drive.
