Father arrested for DWI after bailing out son

It's no fun to spend a night in jail, so when Trevor Brown of Gothenburg, Nebraska called his father after being picked up for drunk driving, he was probably relieved when his dad agreed to come down to the jail to bail him out. Problem was, dad was also drunk, and when he arrived at the...
