Actor Wes Studi on Monday issued an apology for his behavior in the early morning hours of Friday, July 26, when he became loudly abusive and vulgar toward Santa Fe police officers who arrested him on a charge of aggravated DWI.

Studi, who refused to submit to sobriety testing and has pleaded not guilty, issued a statement through a Seattle public relations firm whose advertised services include “crisis communications” and “reputation management.”

    Sounds like he was channeling Mel Gibson. [beam]

    Please clarify your statement, "Last year 361 people died in alcohol related accidents...". Is that for New Mexico only? Seems low, were it national. And what is the definition of "alcohol related" as regards that number? Thank you.

    Barbara, you seem like a really compassionate person, however neither lack of respect for his talent nor historical trauma are acceptable reasons to endanger the other members of this community. Last year 361 people died in alcohol related accidents - all the result of a fundamentally nice person making a really poor choice. So I will save my sympathy for their loved ones. I completely respect him for apologizing to the police for his attitude, but he didn't own up to making the conscious choice to drink and drive. He still has an opportunity to create a positive outcome to this situation and I hope he chooses to do that.

    FYI, my sarcasm is well-founded and based on the 43 minute backseat video he starred in, which KRQE-13 has posted to their YouTube channel.

    Was the female passenger in the car with him, the woman who owned the car, his spouse?

    Apology accepted, now I hope you get the maximum penalty allowed under the law, I hope the same for all drunk drivers.

    Am so happy Mr. Studi issued an apology to law enforcement. I have always had nothing but the highest respect for his acting skills. I have never understood why mainstream Hollywood never fully utilized his abilities in other non-Native American roles. Without meaning to condone his behavior while he was intoxicated, I cannot help but wonder if maybe historical trauma was at the root of it. Also, am certain Mr. Studi recognizes the outstanding wife and family he has. Having such a talented, wonderful, loving spouse and family is the highest of blessings. I know for I do not have any.
