missmya 12/14/2013 6:17:20 PM Report

I'd call that a hat trick!

Trevor Seaton again!? Hat trick for sure. I agree with the photo, enough with the probation already, it clearly isn't working for Trevor.

Wow. What was this fool thinking?

Hope you enjoy the food in prison, pal. You deserve it!

Whoops, correction- in my above comment I'm referring to the picture in this story - but the fact that Trevor Seaton (also on probation) was busted in the previous Blucher Street drug bust story.

Did you read it the article? He's a car thief and on probation , I think caring how he get his sorry self home is not a major concern in this losers case.
Probably would just rob the cab or "Drivers Seat" driver.

There has been cases on the books, where a person wants to go and retrieve his/her car the next morning after a night out of drinking and partying and was found to be still impaired.

oooops .... No I hadn't seen that ..! I was just commenting what "normal" people should do to be responsible ...!! In his case ..he's not worth worrying about I guess.. unless he has a head on with someone in a vehicle he stole and under the influence. He sounds like a loser for sure..!

This city is infested with drunk drivers!
crashed13 12/16/2013 10:04:25 AM Report

I don't think a person who steals a car warming up in a driveway cares about drunk driving.
Kind of like a getaway driver does not care about speeding tickets after a bank robbery.
