Stuart Irby arrested for DUI. (Video)



Stuart Irby was arrested for DUI yesterday in Ridgeland. I don't think I need to add any comments to this story. WAPT has it on their website and it will undoubtedly be on the other stations. Let the media frenzy begin. I'm sure Claiborne is grateful.

Anyone think SI might have a problem with alcohol?

I said from the beginning, give him enough rope and he will hang himself, he is on Noose No. 2, first the stalking and now DUI...............the third time will be the charm??????

Claiborne has the upper hand on the DUI's. Low Life sob's...

Don't forget a disgruntled husband calling the cops to drive SI home from the Bacchus Ball at CCJ. He is very very fortunate that the husbands of at least 2 women that he hit on that night had known him for decades and didn't further scramble his brains.

SI's up to about life #8 by now, not many more left. Do any of his siblings care what happens to him or are they content to just let this nightmare play out in the public eye?

Anonymous said...

Don't know if the third time will be the charm, but this makes TWO arrests this month.

(There are 10 days left in March...plenty of time for another arrest if someone doesn't intervene to save SI from himself.)

Maybe Judge Danks will revoke the bond on the stalking charge

From WLBT. The idiot got a DUI while driving his motorcycle. OMG.

RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Stuart Irby has been arrested again, this time for DUI. He was arrested on his motorcycle on Old Canton Road, in Ridgeland, around 7:30 Sunday evening.

Irby has bonded out, but no other details are available at this time.

Irby surrendered himself to Madison Police on March 3rd, and was charged with Cyberstalking. He's free on $50,000 bond on that charge.

Story updated on WLBT now with more details.

RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Stuart Irby is free on bond, after being arrested for DUI and careless driving. He was arrested, on his motorcycle, around 7:30 Sunday evening in Ridgeland.

An unidentified witness says she saw Irby pull his boat into its slip at Pier "C" in Madison County around 7pm, adding that he had a hard time keeping his balance as he left the boat.

The witness says that the first time Irby tried to crank motorcycle, he fell over, but finally got it cranked and left.

According to the police report, a Ridgeland police officer saw Irby run a red light on Old Canton Road, at William Boulevard, and he was traveling at a high rate of speed.

When the officer pulled him over, his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, he seemed lethargic and slurred his speech. He told the officer he had one martini.

Irby tested 0.09 on the breathalyzer. He was released after posting $1,000 bond.

He's notorious for tearing around on that motorcycle. Now he doesn't have his sheriff's deputy girlfriend to get him out a jam.

After interacting with Stuart I honestly have to wonder if he has the mental capacity to understand right from wrong. After seeing him struggle at social functions, my question isn't "why was he Drinking and driving?" but "who's letting him have keys?"

From WAPT:

A witness called the Ridgeland police and reported that a man driving a silver Harley-Davidson motorcycle appeared to be intoxicated. The witness told police that the driver fell over and stalled out several times while trying to drive down Dyke Road near Rice Road, according to a police report.

Officer Ryan Ainsworth spotted the motorcycle, which was driven by Irby, on Old Canton Road and followed him, police said. The officer reported that Irby ran the red light at the intersection of Old Canton Road and William Boulevard and then sped off southbound on Old Canton Road.

The officer pulled Irby over about 7:20 p.m. in a parking lot in the 6500 block Old Canton Road. Ainsworth said that Irby's eyes were bloodshot and glassy and he seemed to be lethargic. He also slurred his speech and smelled of alcohol, Ainsworth said in the report. Irby, 57, declined to take a preliminary breath test but did agree to a field sobriety test, after which he was arrested. Irby later was given a breath test, which registered .09 percent, which was above the .08 legal limit, police said.

Ridgeland Police Chief Jimmy Houston said he knows Irby, but said that will not play a role in this case.
"It's a shame. It's sad that anyone goes to a bar, comes out, gets on a two-wheel vehicle that has to be propped up when you get off of it, goes down the road, drops it a couple of times, has problems getting it started, goes down the road at a high rate of speed, runs a red light -- how silly," Houston said.

Irby posted a $1,000 bond and was released, Ridgeland police said. He's scheduled to appear in court on April 19.

was he out drinking with Claiborne? That would be classic! They could swap sherry around ...

Anonymous said...

SO...why isn't his bond being revoked on the cyber stalking?

Anonymous said...

"....how silly," Houston said. HOW SILLY??? How about "how dangerous", "how risky", "how serious", "how reckless", "how Seriously Stupid".

Silly makes me thinks of laughing...and this is no laughing matter. Far from it.

It's just a matter of time before Stu Irby kills himself or someone else. I'm more concerned about the 'someone else'.

Autogyro said...

Dang, pretty unprecidented for the police to release footage of the field sobriety test to the media, isn't it?

Anonymous said...

What's the deal with him pulling his pants down? Was he taking a piss before he got on his bike or was he just that shitfaced that he fell out of his pants?

Anonymous said...

Why would the sheriff make that many biased comments on this arrest? Seems like it would taint the jury pool and jeopardize the criminal case. I'm not well versed in criminal law so maybe someone else can help out on that subject.

Anonymous said...

must be some good meds to be that shitty at .09

Curt Crowley said...

5:34, assuming it's a first offense (w/i the past 5 yrs), he's not going to get a jury trial. There won't be any risk of jury taint.

There's something wrong with this picture, though. He had "bloodshot and glassy" eyes, and was "lethargic." He also had slurred speech. That description does not exactly square up with a BrAC of .09%.

By all accounts, Mr. Irby is a "power-drinker." Absent some evidence of another substance, it's not very likely that he would be impaired to that degree at a .09.

Anonymous said...

Kingfish, will you be posting the RPD's Chief's campaign finance reports? I understand him and Stuart were pretty close.

I am shocked they didn't hold him until the bond revoke hearing scheduled for tomorrow. In addition, I am surprised he was able to bail out Sunday night.

Was he cited for lack of insurance as well? How can someone with the brain issues he has legally have a license (especially a motorcycle rating)?

This latest episode could get very interesting, fast...

Anonymous said...

I thought he was not supposed to drive secondary to medical issues. Does he still have a driver's license? Should he? If he is too disabled to testify, isn't he too disabled to drive? Did his physician or the highway patrol clear him to drive post Brain Injury? It seems that someone should intervene before he kills someone else!

Anonymous said...

If he was trashed at .09, he may have been taking some pills that intensified the alcohol in his system. Still shouldn't have been driving if he was .09 and no pills.

Anonymous said...

He is going to hurt someone again and we all are forewarned. So when are the authorities going to man up and do something to protect the citizens of the metro area?

Anonymous said...

If the comments made my Houston were true, he's an idiot. Think about, his comment came off as "just because he's my friend, an idiot and silly, I'm not going to show preferential treatment" (thanks Crowley for the hint). And was a blood test administered? THAT would give the true picture of the influence he was driving under.

Ridgeland continues to show their colors. Let the chips fall where they may.

I imagine if he can no longer ride a motorcycle, maybe he could try a Craftsman.

How many times does someone want to tempt fate?

Is this the lost Domestic Violence video?

Maybe Stuart has suffered a near-stroke.

Anonymous said...

I don't understand why some of his family doesn't come forward and try to at the least hire Stuart a keeper. At this rate, he's going to keep on until more carnage ensues. Honestly, I don't think Stuart has the mental cognizance left to make even decent judgments, let alone good ones. I can't believe his family doesn't try to help him. I mean, he's got grown children. Did he alienate them along the way, and they washed their hands of him, or what? If this was my father, I would try to help him because I really feel he doesn't know what the hell he is doing. This really is like an unfolding gothic southern family nightmare.

Kingfish, my iPad and iPhone had no issues, but my work PC and home PC are having "script issues" on your page. It takes quite some time to load, and then asks me if I want to keep running a script on this page. Since I see the red "x" after declining to run said script, I assume it is the ad below "The Crowley Law Firm" and above "Worst Weatherman in Jackson?"

$50.00 says he skates. Two errors on the Intox machine at start combined with his "other" problems. He's going to get off the hook.

I wish the local media would stop referring to him as "prominent local businessman." "Son of a prominent local businessman" would be a much more accurate statement.

So irby has the excuse of possible stroke or brain injury. What's claiborne's excuse?

I'm having the same "script running" issue, but didn't say anything because I thought it was probably peculiar to my computer, which got its last software upgrade when Reagan was governor of California.

I did enjoy the Reno 911 clip...

10:05, "gothic southern family nightmare" is pretty much another expression for "trainwreck". Same thing. Tomato / Tomato.

5:58, I agree.

I got stalled with "script running" messages all day yesterday on two different PCs. No problem today on a third machine, also the most current machine.

Anonymous said...

All other reporting set aside, why does it state he was at a bar? Did someone see him at a bar? The police assumed he was at a bar? Not all people who drink go to a bar...

Anyway, hate this happened. But, anyone who has any conversation with him knows he isn't in a right state of mind after the accident with Karen. His mind isn't right. Not justifying anything, but someone needs to stand up and take over. He is going down a very steep hill and no one seems to care. His head/mind isn't right.
And the stalking charges were BOGUS people. It was a stupid thing he did but he wasn't online stalking minors. He has gotten photoshop happy and photoshopped a picture. That hardly is stalking. His mind is of a reckless teenager now. WHy hasn't anyone stepped up to intervene before he kills someone or himself?

Frugal Gal said...

Ditto on the script thing -- relieved to know it wasn't just me.

Kingfish said...

I think the script thing was caused by that poster I put up yesterday. Scribd switched to HTML 5 a few days ago and I think its messing with things a little. Think I fixed it though. Ran into this problem one time with one of WLBT's videos when I embedded it. DIdn't have a problem yesterday with firefox but saw it in IE.

Kingfish said...

Obviously Mr. Irby is not well. Anyone who has seen him in public sees what I see. He is definitely better after rehab but its clear something is not right. Scuttlebutt I'm getting is Danks revokes the bond. In my opinion, he should revoke the bond with condition he is placed back into a rehab center for his injuries. This is not the first time he's recently driven his motorcycle at high speeds.

Danks' order bars Irby from drinking. That's sort of like ordering the sun not to rise.

All of you who are enjoying making jokes and rude comments about and towards SI, need to realize that this situation is very very sad. I have always believed that SI's mind/brain isn't right after the wreck and that SI doesn't remember the wreck AT ALL! There's NO way in my opinion that he can be right after that kind of brain injury. His brain suffered a lot of trauma. Who actually caused the wreck is water under the bridge at this point but at the end of the day, Karen was the one behind that wheel.

So, instead of throwing stones at SI, why don't you try to look at this situation in a different way. He needs help and hopefully something positive will come out of the latest stories. I hope that many of you can find a place in your heart to pray that someone gets a hold of SI and helps him rather than allows him to destroy himself.

@3:58 p.m.- my understanding is that a DUI 1 is a misdemeanor which stays on your driving record for seven years.

I could be wrong.

We're not out there asking for public humiliation. And I would hope Irby's family has tried to do something about him (or they are all heartless) and failed because SI doesn't meet the standard for determining him incompetent to run his affairs.

I thought it was five years. I may be wrong. Second one is longer. Third, who knows.

Let's see, eggs too scrambled to testify at wife's trial. Serious brain damage, just not the same as before the famous wreak.
Get on the computer for a little cyberstalking fun, within 24 hrs. violates bond agreement. Told not to drink by judge.

Fast forward, Evil jumps on 500 lb. scoot, drops said scoot several time while trying to get underway. Show up on RPD dash cam as poster boy for "America's Dumbest Drunk Drivers". Blows an .09 yet gets house arrest.

A Harley and not a Ducati, huh? Over a decade ago when my friends and I used to drink and drive around Eastover, we stopped by his place to take a whizz. He came out and got on that Ducati and chased us all the way back through Fondren.

Excerpt from the WLBT piece- "An unidentified witness says she saw Irby pull his boat into its slip at Pier "C" in Madison County around 7pm, adding that he had a hard time keeping his balance as he left the boat."

Irby should have also been charged with operating a boat while under the influence. Does anyone wonder where he might have been on that boat? Was he out visiting someone and partying on someone's houseboat or just having a joyride all by himself?

He told the arresting officer that he had drunk only one martini. Wonder where he got that "one" martini?

Just curious...

I agree, the man needs help and will probably need help the rest of his life. Someone in his family needs to step up to the plate and gain control over him.

DUI's stay on your record permanently. They cannot be expunged, they do not "go away". HOWEVER, they can only be "counted" for enhancement purposes for 5 years. For instance, if you get a 1st offense DUI in 2010 you stand the risk of being enhanced to a 2nd if you receive another DUI within 5 years. 3 within 5 years would be a felony.

Anonymous said...

what would 3 in six years be??? would that be a second second offense?

Anonymous said...

That would be time to quit drinking.

Anonymous said...

12:04 pm: It would depend on how many of the 3 DUI's a person received in the 5 year period.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
