One report spoke to the fact that a considerable amount of vomit was discovered all across the steering wheel and dash area of the car.

Stooping pretty low for KRNV to report the bad and personal news of a competing anchor.

Kramer, your an idiot. If he was allegedly drunk they would not have booked him for all the charges he was booked for including the child endangerment and the DUI. He had to have blown over the limit, you might think the cops are stupid but believe me, he tested drunk and he had his child with him. No respect for someone like that no matter what his role in the community is.

I like Pat, he was in Sacramento. Unfortunately he is one of the all-time champeens at leading most story intros with "well". Totally uncessary, U are on the Air, U can relate 2 us, don't feel awkward.

LASD: "allegedly" drunk, he has a right to be adjudicated. this is why he reads the news while U choose rant beyond reasonable limits. this is a forum, not a lynch mob.

All I can say is that I like Pat. He's very professional, has excellent stage presence and is also very steady reporting the news. I had noticed that the last few days he appeared rigid and distant, so there was something going on with him that he was trying to cover up while on air. I prefer KOLO news above the rest because of his daily performances and because KOLO goes directly to the news and not some feel good stories. I hope he overcomes his circumstances soon and returns ASAP. Hang in there Pat.

Of course this is news, what part of the fact that he was DUI and had his child with him did you miss? I dont care is he was the Vice President, he was still drunk and his child was with him. Too bad he is a known figure and KRNV put the news out there, HE WAS DRUNK AND HIS CHILD WAS WITH HIM! Get a life Tonysam and quit commenting with your nonsense crap.

Of course this involves somebody at another station, one of the competition. You don't really think Channel 4 would report on their own staff, do you?
