August 21, 1993

Aug21On this day in 1993, John Denver was pulled over in his Porsche while driving recklessly through Aspen, Colorado. He blew a .14 and pleaded guilty to driving while impaired.

He was sentenced to 28 hours of community service, which included performing a benefit concert for the Tipsy Taxi service (the taxi company that helps intoxicated people get home safely).

On this same day in 1994, Denver crashed his 1963 Porsche into a tree near his home in Aspen, exactly one year after his previous arrest for drinking and driving.
