sounds like fairly deep ish to me. Tyler James reporting.
lied, that will be reported, too. NDInsider doesn’t do hatchet jobs.
NYPost has picked up the story, which is nice.
Charges are underage drinking, battery, resisting arrest. Misdemeanors. He is out on $250 bail.

You're relying on NDInsider as an authority when their lone source is a police report.
It doesn't matter which or how many media organizations have reported on it at this point, they're all relying on the same source, which is not terribly reliable itself.
Perhaps there is not. Either way, it is certainly better not to make judgments based on police reports. Or, on media reports based on police reports. As you suggest.
Perhaps that's how it happened. Or perhaps the police wrote a report favorable to them.
Especially when the only charge is resisting arrest.
I’m not sure whether he had any obligation for the cops to assist him home. Although I understand the police not wanting a drunk person to flee for his own safety. But if there’s no public intoxication charge, I’m having trouble seeing why they would have a right to detain him if he did not want help going home.
No matter the circumstances.
1) It doesn't add any value; and
2) It's a dumb position to take.
Circumstances always matter. That's the whole point of circumstances.
McKinley’s ND career might be over, but that’s that’s not what you said...
Times have changed a lot since then.
