    Cops: Drunk postman delivers hit-and-run

    Cops: Drunk postman delivers hit-and-run
    Wis. police say mailman was drunk when he drove into oncoming traffic

    WAUKESHA, Wis. - A mail carrier had a blood-alcohol level nearly four times the legal limit when he was arrested for driving his delivery truck into oncoming traffic and crashing into a sign, police said.

    Thomas Lahiff was incoherent Friday when he returned to the post office, where he was arrested about an hour after the crash, Police Capt. Mike Babe said. He said tests showed the 46-year-old’s blood-alcohol level was 0.31 percent.

    Lahiff now faces a drunken driving charge and was ticketed for hit-and-run causing property damage, Babe said. Police said Lahiff’s postal truck had crossed into oncoming traffic, jumped a curb and hit a “no parking” sign.

    It happened about an hour before he returned to the post office, and it’s not clear where he was in the meantime, Babe said.

    Postal Service spokeswoman JoAnne Blackburn said Lahiff was involved in an accident and would not be delivering mail pending an investigation, but she would not elaborate.

    So much for sticking a bottle of brandy in the mailbox to tip your carrier. Next year try a cheese sampler.
