Layne Flack: Official Statement on DUI

From Layne Flack's reps:

"I attended the Draw Party at Pure on Friday night and then met with my brother, who had flown into Vegas for Heads Up. I was under the impression that I was to play in the last bracket the next evening at around 8 pm. I was pulled over for speeding and refused a breathalyzer test as I have been instructed to do. I have no idea why I was written a ticket for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. There were no emergency vehicles around, besides the police car. A test, given by the Las Vegas PD, later revealed that I had a blood alcohol content of zero. I also took a blood test, as I have nothing to hide. I was held for the mandatory 6 hours and released. I always go out of my way to not drink and drive. I regret that I was not able to play in NBC Heads Up and hope to be invited next year to play in this prestigious event." 

Ok, this Layne Flack DUI arrest statement is just going to fan the flames. We're really to believe Layne had a blood alcohol level of zero? Sure, maybe if he was sober (as in, kicked the drinking in rehab) we'd be willing to suspend our disbelief just a little bit. But dude was drunk last weekend at the WPT Invitational, so we know he's kicking a few back. We're really expected to believe a guy known for having some alcohol issues was pulled over for driving 21 mph over the speed limit and was subsequently thrown in jail for no other reason? Come on, Layne.

UPDATE: Andrew Robl writes that he did tequilla shots with Layne at the draw party. Hard to believe a few hours later Layne would have a blood-alcohol level of zero. Read here. Thanks to reader Faybarpio for the link.

UPDATE II: Robl for some reason took the part about Flack off his blog. Yeah, nobody saw it man. It wasn't pasted all over the place. You deleted it off the face of the Earth like it never happened! Sly one, that Robl.

Lastly, I was admittedly quite drunk and somehow convinced the legendary Layne Flack to take shots of tequila with me. I was not thinking straight, so it was not the most responsible idea to convince someone who has had his battles with his vice demons to jump back into the hell of temptation. We ended up getting quite drunk and I went home to get some sleep while his night continued. This afternoon, I was alerted to a 2+2 gossip post that revealed that Flack was arrested for a DUI and had to forfeit his tournament entry. I feel pretty guilty about it. As anyone who knows Layne knows he is a super nice and charismatic guy regardless of the mistakes he made.

This is a specialty area of medicine, and to qualify for it, the doctor has to complete medical school and then take a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation thansks for this information.

As of 9:00 PM EST, Andrew Robl's blog has been edited and he no longer claims to have chugged tequila shots with The Andy Dick of Poker.

Mr. Andrew Robl has a different recollection of events...

... and the biggest bluff of 2009 thus far goes to the Flackster.
