When the deputy approached the vehicle, he said he smelled alcohol on the driver's breath and that the driver appeared impaired. The report says the driver's eyes were "bloodshot and glassy," his speech was slurred, and he was unsteady on his feet.
According to the deputy's report Weiss claimed he had only one or two drinks at the golf club, and asked why he was "doing this to him?"
Weiss was a founding partner of Milberg Weiss, and was convicted in 2008 on a racketeering charge for his role in an alleged decades-long scheme in which serial plaintiffs were paid kickbacks out of the attorneys' fees for filing their shareholder lawsuits. The disbarred lawyer was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison, and apparently still is on probation.
