Hit-and-Run Assistant D.A. Allegedly Had 8 Pints of Guinness

Guinness makes you strong, but eight pints of it apparently makes you strongly stupid. A Delaware County prosecutor this morning alleged in court that former Delco assistant district attorney Michael Donohue had drunk ginormous amounts of stout before a November 4, 2011, accident in which Donohue struck a skateboarding Havertown teenager and quickly left the scene. In a perhaps somewhat novel defense move, Donohue’s lawyer did not deny the hit and run — just that his client was drunk. [Inquirer]
