    Even though he could not drive the car, he could've called a friend/you to drive it home. Report it stolen (a must) and contact the insurance company.

    Then you're out of luck. If you ever find it, call the police and tell them where it is, make sure you have proof of purchase at hand.

    How in any way is this the polices fault? All they did was abide by law and put common practice into place and anyway, even if you could sue them, what would be the point? He was drunk driving... He wouldn't have been pulled over in the first place if he wasn't drunk driving.

    Best thing that can be done is to call the insurance company.

    Of course you can sue police. You can sue anyone nowadays.

    But it's hard to win cases like that.

    This is the universe teaching him a life lesson for driving around drunk and risking other peoples lives. If he was my brother the first thing out of my mouth would be "good job jackass" not lets get a lawsuit together. :secruity:

    Tell your brother to stop being a fucktard and not to drink drive.

    People who drink drive should not have cars, they kill people. This is perfect justice.

    In the UK, the police seize all uninsured vehicles that are on public roads - and send them to scrapyards to be crushed!

    If you like, you can read about the famous case Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A2d 1, D.C. Ct. Ap 1981, in which the D.C. Circuit held that there is no duty on the part of the police to victims of criminal acts unless a special relationship applies. Thus, the police have no duty to you if someone is trying to kill you, let alone steal your car. The duty that police owe is to society in general, not any particular individual.

    haha, actually believe it or not i didn't even notice.. no, i was thinking more the "we're going to sue your ass AND your balls" reflex rather than questioning oneself.
