So as I'm driving down Lower fayettville Rd, I see a large sign that says "prison work detail ahead". As I continue, I see a prisoner on a large grass cutting tractor, slamming down a 40 of Budlight, while the Gaurds stand on the side of the road a ways back. The people in front of methe obviously saw the same thing and stop to tell the gaurds. I over hear the guy say "hey one of those inmates is drinking a beer" Gaurd says" what? Really? Ok thanks" and waves him off and looks like he did not even care. Question? Isn't driving a tractor on the side of the road and consuming alcohol considered to be DUI. I've seen it on these cop shows where they bust some old redneck on a riding lawn mower. Secondly isn't an inmate driving a tractor on the side if the road while drinking alcohol wrong to begin with? I blame sunday alcohol sales..lol but seriously the gaurds were like ok and let him continue on a county/ state issued equipment. What if that inmate pulled out into traffic because NOW he's got a slight buzz and is not paying attention and causes an accident that hurts someone pretty bad or even kills them. Is it because the gaurds have no help watching 20 guys or do the just not give a s**t. I'm a firm believer that if you're in jail you're there for a reason and if break the rules in jail then you should get the fulliest of punishmnets. Now i don't know if they ever confronted him about later on, but i think it could been handled quicker
