Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith in Ohio as a means of offering a support and recovery system to individuals to fight their addiction to alcohol. Many people are familiar with the Twelve Step program that was established to help these committed individuals master their goals of sobriety with the help of many supporters and peer accountability partners.
According to recent news reports, A Massachusetts man was recently arrested in the state of Vermont for driving under the influence, and where he was caught is somewhat ironic. Police state that he was arrested after driving across the lawn of one of the Alcoholics Anonymous co-founders estates. The Wilson House was built in 1852 and is where Bill Wilson, one of the co-founders of the program, was born and raised. Sadly, Bill Wilson died in 1972, but his legacy goes on, affecting and changing the lives of many individuals across the country.
Reports state that Donald Blood III, a 55 year old man, was arrested for the DUI on Christmas Eve this week, for allegedly thinking that the Wilson House was a parking lot as opposed to a front yard. While the exact charges against him have not been released, he is set to appear before the court on the 14th of January.
