Remember, kids - only professional athletes are allowed to drive drunk

Rafer Alston = Not Guilty.

This even after Alston admitted to having a few drinks to the officer. 
After leaving a bar at 2:30am.
And, yes, he was driving.

The lesson?  Athletes can drive drunk (or do most anything illegal) all they want, so long as no people or dogs get hurt.

Granted, I am somewhat happy with the result - the Rockets' only real weakness is depth at point guard, and Rafer is needed.  Somewhat.  But you'll never convince me he was sober when he was pulled over that night/morning.
