D BAG Of The Day: A Drunk Driver Runs Back to His Burning Car to Light a Cigarette

A 25-year-old idiot named Robert Quigley was driving drunk near Sacramento, California on Sunday when he rear-ended an SUV, and his car caught fire.

He was going about 80 miles an hour when he ran into a traffic jam, and couldn't stop in time.  Luckily no one was seriously injured.

Anyway, a cop stopped to help, and saw Robert switching seats with his passenger to avoid a DUI.  Yes, the car was already on FIRE at this point.  So . . . great priorities.

Then after they were both out, Robert ran BACK to his burning car . . . so he could use the flames to light a cigarette.

He burned part of his eyebrows off in the process, but told cops he's not afraid of fire, because he, quote, "deals with this kind of stuff all the time."  (???)

It's not clear what he meant by that.  But it turned out it was his second DUI in less than a week.

See the aftermath video below!
