Ballston Spa Football Coach Charged With DWI
It’s never a good look when a teacher or school professional breaks the law. A law that is far too familiar with high school students who are trying to get their license. DON’T DRINK & DRIVE. Unfortunately not all adults can follow their own advice and fall short to that example they are suppose to set for their students.
According to the Times Union, the head varsity football coach for Ballston Spa, Jason Ohnsman, was charged with DWI on Saturday night. His blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit according to law enforcement.
I’m sure he’ll need to look for new employment after this charge. Adults within the school districts need to recognize that they serve as an example to students.
You have to practice what you preach, and although the toughness of the world gets us down here – there is no excuse to DRINK OR DRIVE. The Capital District has ride share programs such as Uber & Lyft that are here to help prevent DWI’s. Pay the fee to get home rather than risk other people’s lives driving drunk on the road.
