Comments (0)

Thomas Scott Vandegrift plead no contest to a 2008 Virginia DUI charge and received a six-month suspended sentence, a $750 fine and a 12-month loss of license.  Vandegrift is now filing a lawsuit which alleges Roanoke, VA sheriff's deputies beat him while in custody when they became annoyed with his burping.  The burping is said to have been caused by acid reflux which is a stormy issue in the world of DUI defense.
