What a freaking idiot... I can't believe anybody would want to post this video of themselves...Wow! That police officer needs an award for dealing with this guy... Lock him up and throw away the key...
- - March 12, 2012 at 09:52:39
What a moron.......is he proud of this? Should be in jail!

This nonsense needs to be deleted from the internet. RCMP did their job.
- - March 8, 2012 at 20:34:54
How dare all of you to make such hideous comments when you have NO idea what the circumstances surrounding this are......yes to drink and drive IS WRONG!!!! and he will face punishment for that.......but relax he does have family and friends who are awaiting the outcome! And to all the Bay/Newfie haters, take a look in the mirror!!!!!!! "Don't judge a MAN until you have walked a mile in his shoes!"
- - March 8, 2012 at 12:46:05
He looks like he's wearing reflective coveralls - I'd like to know where this loser works, particularly if he's dealing with heavy machinery on a worksite or something. Talk about a workplace hazard. To be at work, smelling of booze and so clearly hammered, one has to wonder about his employer...

This shows this man,s intelligence and i use the word man loosely ... In this day in age we all know full well how dangerous it is to Drink and drive We all know full well it is against the law and we know what can happen. As far as im concerned > This guy and any one who gets behind the wheel of a car while over the limit she get no second chance to kill someone Their license should be taken away for life

What a loser. Thank you RCMP for getting the drunk driver off the road. Sure won't hire this guy to do work for me.

Despite taking and posting the actual video itself (idiot), it's the middle of the day and you're driving impaired! What a winner this gem is! GOOD JOB MOUNTIES, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! You're keeping our roads safer out there!
- - March 8, 2012 at 08:42:29
I am really shocked to some of the ignorance towards fellow Newfoundlanders in these comments!!! Because it's only people from small communities that drink yeah right, you folks need to take your head outta the clouds and look around, we are all from the same island!!!! I agree that Chris's punishment sound be more then a tap on the wrist being he not only put himself at risk but the entire community of spaniards bay ffs! I'm sure you will nod when reading this, we all know of or has lost a family member,friend or even neighbor to a intoxicated driver and in my opinion anyone to even think of driving with any substance that can obsecure your vision deserves punishment!!!!

First of all this man left his work place to go get his lady friend,what kind of boss does he have to even allow him to be at the work place in the first place,maybe OHS should be brought in and investigate this.Not only was it unsafe for him to be there while imppeared,it was also unsafe for his co-workers,he should been sent home by taxi,also being called stupid Newfies ,if most of you watch the news other then just the local news you would find out that this drunk driving is happening all over Canada and the world.As for being called a Newfie I certainly corrects people when they refer to me as a Newfie or a goofy Newfie.I,m from St John,s drunk driving is a big problem in the city not just the small ares outside the city limits.

We have just had a horrible highway crash here in Alberta involving a drunk driver smashing into another vehicle and killing 4 of the 5 passengers. If anyone in their right mind thinks it is okay to drink and drive ,put yourself in the position of the families who have lost their loved ones due to someone elses stupidity.
- - March 7, 2012 at 21:22:10
Great job by this RCMP officer. His professionalism was very outstanding. A perfect example of what these police officers have to deal with on a daily basis which has to be difficult. As for Hayward, there are not enough words to describe that!
- - March 7, 2012 at 20:33:43
Ya all would do well if you got him into a treatment center . Maybe the Police will suggest that when he stands before the judge. Yes he did a foolish thing. He needs help.
- daily occurrence
- - March 7, 2012 at 20:24:07
The sorry thing about this is, this is an everyday occurrence and not just in NFLD.As you can see these offenders THINK they are doing no wrong and that their LAWYER is in contact with GOD or something..and will pull this rabbit out of a hat and save him from the action 's of the the courts.All the while they are being mislead by the disease they have which is alcoholism(and stupidity and ignorance)....and from the sounds of things this guy is a repeat offender and has a record for violence....there is research saying that before you get picked up for impaired..you have done it a hundred times before...and to top it off his female partner is a big time enabler and tolerates this behaviour....but then again birds of a feather stick together.............. these are the people who kill innocent people....then blame somebody else.................Good job by the RCMPolice
- - March 7, 2012 at 19:21:01
It's obvious why he recorded it all. Remember, we only got the edited version. By him. I'll bet Heidi started recorded the moment the cops lights flashed. He was hoping the officer would slip up during the arrest allowing him to get off on a technicality. I mean the guy got on the radio proclaiming that his rights were violated. Even though he nor anyone else would be able to say what was wrong with the job the officer did, a devious enough attorney could spin something together and turn it around just enough allowing him to walk away. People who are always in trouble with the law become pros at dodging it and keep lawyers in business.
- - March 7, 2012 at 19:05:13
This man is not an idiot. He is actually a nice person who would do anything in the world for you. I agree it wasn't the smartest thing to post, but everyone has their bad moments in life.

You get idiots everywhere in this world and clearly chris is one. Newfoundlanders are good people and it is people like him that shames me. I am a proud Newfoundlander who don't drink and drive , nor do I have to move to a big city to have class. I am from the same town as Chris but nothing like him, and shame on anyone you sterotypes people on others actions.
- - March 7, 2012 at 17:47:57
To Dave J...... We're not all silly newfies as you put it,you j... a.. You should be ashamed to call yourself an honest newfoundlander.Crawl back in the hole you crawled out of.It only takes an a.. like this to make the rest of respectable honourable newfoundlander's LOOK bad.
- - March 7, 2012 at 17:44:31
Kudos to the Const. Loder and the employees who ratted him out!! After seeing this video don't you all feel just a tiny bit smarter??? I know I do!!
- - March 7, 2012 at 17:38:51
A lot of people are calling him an idiot. They should apologize to all the other idiots.
- - March 7, 2012 at 17:26:20
This past Monday morning I had the misfortune of having to listen to this idiot as I waited in Carbonear hospital emergency room. He was there showing everyone who was willing to listen this video. Basically bragging and claiming the cop put him in danger. Anyone with with common sense could see that he was a complete idiot. His idiotic nature continued to shine through over the next 7 hours I had to wait. With him talking loudly on his cell phone and showing the video numerous times.After seeing the video on here its clear he was imparied at the time of his arrest. I commend the professionalism of the police officer who had to deal with him.
- - March 7, 2012 at 17:12:47
I'm amazed at how the Officer had to handle this guy with caution as to not "violate his rights". What kind of a system have we created??? Be nice now be nice...don't hurt the poor man (idiot)...
- - March 7, 2012 at 16:57:37
First and foremost, this guy should be ashamed to admit he was drinking and driving. That in itself, speaks for what kind of a person he is... a big loser who has no regard for others. Secondly, to take a video of it and put it on YouTube just go to show how low functioning he is. This man needs help. First though, I think he should be thrown a stiff jail sentence for driving under the influence before he kills or seriously hurts somebody. I hope he's reading all of these comments and realizes what an a** he's made of himself and decides to change his life for the better!

Mr.HayWIRE,I'm stuck for word's and that's not me.You're friend in the car with you should go to jail also.For letting you drive..Sounds like she could make a good Mrs. HayWIRE..Thank's for the RCMPolice...
- - March 7, 2012 at 16:45:02
This guy thinks the officer did something wrong? He did nothing but follow procedure. All this impaired driver is doing by recording his arrest is embarrassing his self, way to show to world how deserving you were to be arrested! It would have been a different story if he hit another car or person, he probably wouldn't of recorded that!
- - March 7, 2012 at 16:30:21
To sillee newfie. Your comments are about as smart as the guy in the video.

He should have been picked up for being stupid. For the idiot (Sillie Newfies) that mentioned the thing about town and around the bay. You are just as much of an idiot, that is being arrested. I spent 30 years in the military and it is idiots like you that give us real Newfoundlanders a crappy name..Smarten up!!

This is the stuff our officers have to face every day!! Bravo officer for keeping your cool. Not sure if I could be so calm. Really was there any need of this guy being such an idiot. At least there's one more drunk driver off the road (for now) Bet ya he'll do it again.

I hate the "N" word some people who fit the stereotype use to describe Newfoundlanders. Anyone who uses that vile word, this is an example. That word should be struck from our vocabulary.

The only right violated here is the right to be an IDIOT! He even makes most idiots look good. Drunk driving at 9:00 in the morning; resisting arrest; trying to bribe an officer; and to top it all off, he videos it and shows it to the world. Gene pool shallower the a beer cap.
- - March 7, 2012 at 13:01:44
This person's existence is a danger to the public, and an embarrassment to civilization.
- - March 7, 2012 at 12:28:42
In the court of public opinion... the prosecution rests, you're honour! As if the fact Mr Hayward has phoned radio talk shows to claim innocence, protest his arrest and "violation of rights," he makes available a video showing the exact opposite. Bloodshot eyes and smell of alcohol is all it takes to be detained, and Mr Hayward had to make it worse by making a scene. Also, to everyone from outside the province... this man is not a fair representation of what us Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are like.

- - March 7, 2012 at 12:10:30
This should be a real eye opener to us and the Judges.Idiots like this who drive while drunk cause so much hurt and harm in this Province and take so many lives they need to have their driving license removed for no less then 10-15 years.This vidio should be played in court before his sentence and the time given for driving suspension once he is found guilty should be 12 years.

What an ass,I don,t know what point he was trying to make,I agree with Carol Ann if you are impaired at 9am in the morning,how much did you drink,or when did you start to drink.I still don,t know why the media and police constantly report these people who are behind the wheel drinking and driving,and all these losers who owe all these big fines,they know the system and they know they are getting off with a slap on the wrist.And Heidi find yourself a new friend he,s not worth it,unless you are as bad as he is.
- Sillee Newfies
- - March 7, 2012 at 11:55:14
The guy being arrested is pretty typical for most Newfies I've met who aren't from St. John's. I'm not sure why anyone is surprised here. His sentence should be to move to the big city and learn some class.
- why did you post that??
- - March 7, 2012 at 11:27:32
did you pass or fail the breath test by the RCMP technician??
- - March 7, 2012 at 11:08:47
Not quite sure what rights this man feels were infringed upon. In my oponion Constable Loder handled him very professionally and should be commended on a job well done.

- carol ann rogers
- - March 7, 2012 at 10:47:04
I am gob smacked. I guess you felt entitled to do this but, filiming your arrest was one thing, why on earth did you film yourself attempting to bribe an officer?You blew the breathlizer, that is the result of technology not the opinion of the officer. If you drank that much the night before to still be drunk at 9am you have a serious problem. Do you know that if you worked on a minning site and showed up sick from a hang over your supervisor would not let you go down into the mine, it is considered equally as impared of judgment and a risk to others safety...that's a hangover, you don't get a breathlizer there, just the smell and blood shot eyes would get you sent off the job site. Who do you work for is the next question, because they let you come to work in that state, smelling of booze. You got more problems than just an impared charge. This video was your subconcious screaming for help.
- - March 7, 2012 at 10:42:35
Looks like the product of a small gene pool. He could barely open his eyes, acted like a fool and to top it off says "lets not make show of it" but decides to post it on YouTube. Yes sir, a real intellectual giant. Too bad he couldn't be charged for being an idiot.
