Yep, Gaston Randle, Lipscomb City Councilman, has been arrested again! What for?
A Lipscomb city councilman who was arrested on public intoxication charges in Brighton on Friday says he was not drunk, but experiencing symptoms of hyperglycemia.
Gaston Randle, who is diabetic, said he had pulled over along the 4400 block of Bessemer Superhighway late Friday afternoon and was standing outside his car, dizzy and stumbling because his blood sugar was high. Randle said he had not taken his insulin “in a couple days.”
Uh, Gaston… why weren’t you taking your insulin? I’m diabetic, too (Type II, though) and I know how important maintenance is to us. And why were you driving at all, knowing your sugar levels were messed up? And why were you wandering around outside a funeral home? Are you planning to run for mayor of Birmingham at some point? So many questions…
