DUI charges dismissed against Tachibana

November 23rd, 2012

Linebacker Alema Tachibana has been cleared to play against UNLV tomorrow after a District Court judge dismissed a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The key witness, the police officer, failed to appear in court this morning. The case had been postponed when the officer failed to appear during the first scheduled hearing.

Tachibana had been allowed to practice but not participate in games while the outcome of his case was pending.

The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning the state may resubmit at a later time, although that is unlikely.

Health permitting, legendary local coach Skippa Diaz will address the Warriors today.

Diaz is the Warriors' honorary captain for tomorrow's game.

We all make choices in life.

Chad Owens' decision to remain in Canada instead of pursuing a free-agent deal with the NFL was a very good choice.

Is this jersey up for bid?
