John Denver was charged with drunk driving in 1997. On July13th the jury returned a hung verdict, they were evenly split.
John Denver’s lawyers had argued that he had a thyroid condition that distorted the blood alcohol tests.
A thyroid condition was known as ‘bad glands’ in my family from the time that my young nephew ballooned until he was the size of a barrage balloon. His mother, my sister, blamed ‘bad glands’ I assumed it was all the fatty food he was eating…………….
(I wonder if ‘bad glands’ explains some of the apalling music John Denver put out).
