    It's better to be upfront an honest rather than let them find out and you get in worse trouble later.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    Shoot, we had a PT supe get a DUI. Drove a couple months later, just long enough to become a FT supe.

    Got canned about a year later for making drug deals on the company line in a satellite center he was running.

    You'll be fine.

    you'll never go Ft driving anyways so it really wont affect you.
    I'd be upfront and report it just to CYA

    was always told if they didn't ask then don't tell, basically i shouldn't tell ppl unless they ask and if they do then don't lie.
    i saw one pter not a sup go to county jail for 2 weeks straight, pt sup just setup his vacation for those weeks.

    greengrenades To be the man, you gotta beat the man.

    Not sure if he does any driving, but if you don't why would you even have to tell? As long as it doesn't effect your work it's none of their damn business.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    That is not the point of this thread and, to be blunt, is none of your damn business.

    To the OP----you need to be upfront and honest about this. FT management has a bad habit of reading the police log in the local paper.

    Better stick with the twinkies, and leave the alcohol alone.

    I think it's everyone's business when some irresponsible jerk gets out on a public highway drunk.

    They are only reading to make sure their picture and arrest report isn’t in the headlines

    Someone correct if im wrong but I believe that all managers are required to have a valid DOT card. So you might as well be upfront.
