Never drive drunk or onto train tracks.

Christian Rodriguez, a Marine, was arrested in Brooklyn early yesterday after evading police in his Charger, as well as on foot. Everyone knows that he's a Marine because he was apparently in full uniform at the time of his arrest.

Rodriguez's crowning drunken achievement is driving through the Brooklyn Army Terminal, straight onto the LIRR tracks. The 26-year-old Staten Island resident was reportedly headed towards the Verrazano Bridge when he mistakenly turned off of Second Avenue too early, launching a string of epic drunken happenings.

Authorities were ready for a terrorist situation, but no, it was a just a wasted Marine. Rodriguez ditched the car (engine still running) after it got stuck on a rail bed near the LIRR freight line and N train. He was finally apprehended and charged with DWI, and cops noted that was "very nice, very respectful" despite being blasted.
