Deedy Drunk?

Nobody knows if Christopher Deedy was legally drunk at 2:30 AM when he shot dead Kollin Elderts in a crowded Waikiki McDonalds.

Surely both men had been drinking.

Deedy admits shooting Elderts. But because Deedy was an off-duty U.S. Federal employee, he was treated specially.

Reportedly (link), Deedy refused to take a blood-alcohol test.

Instead, while in custody Deedy might have demanded to be alcohol tested in order to clear suspicion of drunkenness. He did not... perhaps he dared not.

Inexperience, deadly force & alcohol are a terrible combination. Don't take your gun to town.
