Now this is preciously priceless. Coors Brewing Chairman Pete Coors, tha man who always urges responsible drinking in Coors ad campiagns, was arrested yesterday for drunk driving. He was stopped for rolling through a stop sign and his blood alcohol level was found to be above the legal limit for the state. For his part, Coors was conciliatory saying in a statement, "I made a mistake by driving myself home after a friend's wedding celebration. I should have planned ahead for a ride. For years I've advocated the responsible use of our company's products. That's still my message, and our company's message, and it's the right message. I am sorry that I didn't follow it myself." Oops.
