Mark Few busted, charged with DUI.

Blog King, Mass Appeal

COUER D’ALENE — Gonzaga men’s basketball coach Mark Few teaches his players to obey like dogs and refrain from arguing with members of his coaching staff. But, when it comes to law enforcement, he doesn’t practice what he preaches. TMZ released video footage of Few’s DUI arrest on September 6th. The 58-year-old skipper was pulled over around 8 p.m. in Idaho amid reports he was driving erratically. His SUV was also packed with canines. Police body cam footage shows a drunken Few experiencing contretemps with an officer before pulling out his cell phone to call his lawyer. But the cop shut that sh*t down. Few claimed he only had “a couple of beers.” His deportment, however, said otherwise. He was drunk as a skunk. Few also refused to participate in field sobriety tests which left officers with no choice but to handcuff his ass. He later blew into a breathalyzer and his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was .120 — well above the federal legal limit (0.08) to drive.

Few, who’s white, was given a citation for misdemeanor DUI.

He also received a measly three-game suspension in lieu of getting fired.

Few issued an apology to his players and school administrators.

“I believe as a leader and role model, I am expected to set only the best example,” he said. “The decisions I made… do not exemplify this standard and for that, I sincerely apologize to you all. I recognize that operating a motor vehicle after consuming any amount of alcohol exhibits poor judgment.”

Did Few get a slap on the wrist?

  1. Look white male privilege working at it’s best. If that was anyone else we would be thrown in jail and treated like dirt, but because its Mark he gets a slap on the wrist. I don’t see the cops ripping him out of his huge suv and sitting on his back or neck.

  2. He’s already owned up, is completing his assigned punishments by both law enforcement and the university. Why is this even being allowed to be aired?

  3. Huge Mark Fan. Getting this DUI might have saved his or someone else’s life in the future. So I’m not mad at all about the 3 game suspension or anything like that. #BLESSINGINDISGUISE

  4. Fire the coach, bad 👎 judgement?, isn’t this guy a college coach who have won many collegiate basketball games over the past two decades. Try telling that to the judge buddy. Any other athlete would’ve been arrested immediately and made an example in the headline, this is called white privileged 🤔 . This reminds me of a white female whom stated to me, that she have been stopped five times for dwi, and was escoted home by the police 🚔 all five times.

  5. These cops must live under rocks to not know who Mark Few is. But they did treat him with a lot of respect. They may have saved his life by getting him off the road that night.

  6. well I certainly didn’t just get a citation last March when I got mine.. What a joke

  7. @Extra Terrestrial: He got the normal punishment anyone does for a dui. Sometimes they have to stay the weekend in jail before they see the judge but other than that it’s completely normal! (yes, i have an ex-husband who was a great example)
    Coach obviously isn’t going to skip the country! The officer spoke up for him because he felt he could! Would you feel better if he had to spend the night in jail?
    Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

  8. His new nickname should be Hadda. Get it? Hadda Few?

    I’m just kidding. He’s probably a good guy.

  9. Does his name protect the other drivers on the road? Will his name keep victims from being injured or killed if this guy plows into a family of 5 while driving intoxicated? NO, NO, AND HELL NO………which means his name shouldn’t have kept him out of handcuffs. I can’t even wrap my mind around this–the man was LEGALLY INTOXICATED behind the wheel and the police are apologizing to him?? TO HIM!!!!? Are you fucking kidding me?! You or I would’ve gone to jail …..

  10. The only troubling issue I see after viewing this video? Wait! No terrorist bodyslams! No vulgur language! No shattered windows! No guns drawn! No pepper spraying! No chokeholds! No stomps to the head! Wow! Polite Terrorist,s! Now, I truly have seen everything!
