Earlier this month, we learned the extraordinary story of private equity guy Russell Stildolph and his flying Porsche, pictured at left. AltEnergy founder Stildoph’s 911 Carrera was airborne for 45 feet, possibly reaching a height of 35 feet, beore it struck the roof overhang and center support beam of an unsuspecting woman Norwalk woman’s home, before the car “fell backward and landed on its roof, facing away from the house.” Russell, whose blood alochol level was over .20 (the legal limit is under .08), said he didn’t recall anything from the evening except for the fact that he was only going 35 MPH. Today he was arraigned on charges of drunk driving, traveling “unreasonably fast,” failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to wear a seat belt, at which time his lawyer made several requests.

Stidolph, 35, of 19 Bluff Ave., appeared in state Superior Court in Norwalk with his lawyer, Eugene J. Riccio, who submitted paperwork requesting Stidolph be able to attend state supervised classes on the hazards of consuming alcohol and driving, and possibly receive treatment for alcohol addiction.

At the same time, Riccio applied for Stidolph be considered for accelerated rehabilitation, a special form of probation that allows persons who have no criminal convictions and who are not accused of a serious felony to have charges against them dismissed if they successfully complete a program assigned to them by the state. Stidolph will return to court on Feb. 23 to learn if he’s been found qualified for the alcohol education program and accelerated rehabilitation.

    Accelerated rehabilitation for a guy driving only 35mph who managed to get his car airborne for 45 feet and reach a height of 35 feet (allegedly) should be easy peasey.

    Gal who still doesn’t understand the physics involved in this accident and really hopes someone will explain it…preferably with pictures.

    I can appreciate the idea that a guy who got his 911 going fast enough to fly is seeking accelerated rehabilitation. Any chance it is available for his car as well?

    The physics are simple: .20 BAC + Porsche Carrera – designated driver = HOLY SHIIIIIIT!

    I wonder if they automatically deduced that he ran the stop sign because otherwise he wouldn’t have the acceleration to end up in the attic. Had he ponied up for the Turbo he probably would have one less charge against him, while still being able to test the structural fortitude of the second story siding.

    I say, good for this guy. He has just lived a cinema-like incident. And he lived to tell the tale. Drunkenly launching car at a house and flipping over – check! No longer on the list of things to do. Now, maybe his next step should be to stop drinkings and driving.

    Porsche build a close relationship with their driver. Handling and acceleration of a Porsche is exceptional. Porsche is about precision.

    Actually car accidents are really bad that we all know and also we know that these accidents happen only because of two reasons. One is because of the careless driving and another is for the vehicles break down. So, to avoid these accidents we have to drive our car carefully and properly and also we have to repair our vehicle from good repair centers whenever required to avoid our vehicles break down and for its smoother running. .

    Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

    Car crash due to rash driving and drunk driving is a common incident these days. People are now no more conscious about their driving and basically in urban areas or in city areas, the number of car accidents or any other vehicle accidents are more. These are increasing day by day. The prime reason behind this is, taking alcohol before driving and another reason is, distract driving due to unconscious or absent mind while driving.
