If anything him drinking and driving while 2 innocent women, that aren't his fiance were in the car would suggest he isn't a good person. Considering his public quotes less then a month before saying "You will never have to worry about me having a DUI". Based on that he is a liar and cheater who endangered the lives of innocent people by driving intoxicated.

As you grow up and mature you'll learn that everyone makes mistakes. That doesn't mean they are bad people.

Drinking and driving is a dumb decision. Good people make dumb decisions all the time.

And don't try to tell me you've never told a lie or made any dumb decisions. One can only hope everyone judges you by your lies or dumb decisions; even if they only occured once.

As for being a liar and a cheater you once again assume intent without actually knowing.

Jones' getting caught with a DUI clearly contradicts what he had previously said but that doesn't automatically make him a liar.

He had never been caught drinking and driving previously and could very well had the intention of not drinking and driving when he said it...and then made a bad decision.

You have no way of knowing Jones cheated on his fiance simply because he was in a vehicle with two other girls. I drove my gf's friends home after a party last weekend without my gf. Doesn't make me a cheater it simply makes me a bf driving his gf's drunk ass friends home after a party.

The world isn't actually black and white. Good people make bad decisions and there are bad people that do good things.
