Whether he was to blame or not he IS guilty of being drunk on duty and that should be a crime. In the company I used to work for in the UK ANYBODY, whatever their job, was deemed to be incapable of doing that job efficiently if under the influence of alcohol and would be sent home. My job did not involve peoples lives and health.
