Judge: Suspected Felon/Seahawks Fan Can Leave State for Super Bowl
 
By Andrew Johnson

A Washington man accused of a felony after a drunken high-speed police chase will get the chance to watch his Seattle Seahawks play in Sunday’s Super Bowl, as long as he wears an electronic-monitoring device. Police apprehended suspect Shaun Goodman at gunpoint after he led authorities through a 100-mile-per-hour chase in his Ferrari in Olympia, Wash. last month.

On Thursday, a superior court judge approved a court petition by Goodman’s lawyer requesting that his client be allowed to leave the state for “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see his hometown team” play in the Superbowl, but only under one condition: He must keep on his SCRAM bracelet, an electronic device that determines whether he has consumed alcohol. Additionally, Goodman cannot drive while the case is pending, so his lawyer said he will takes taxis to get to the game, according to the Olympian.

Goodman left for the game in New Jersey on Friday, and will return to Washington on Monday.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
