Such a wise move.. You have to wonder what logic he used to decide to skip and screw up the rest of his life. What was worth betraying the public trust and the trust of the penal system? Like leaving the scene of the accident when drunk is less of a punishment than a DUI. This dude probably got stoned and knew he's fail the UA or something.
