Someone sent video footage of stumbling drunk former TV judge Joe Brown to Worldstarhiphop.com. The 66-year-old judge was plastered after drinking a double Bombay Sapphire and tonic water.

But the other passengers got him together by duct taping him to a seat and babysitting him for the rest of the flight.
It seems that ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer got her drink on early in celebration of President Obama’s narrow win over Mitt Romney last night.
The usually stoic, straight-laced Sawyer spoke slowly, slurred her words, and appeared to swoon in euphoria under the hot studio lights. In other words, Sawyer was feeling no pain!

“OK,” she said at one point around 10 p.m. ET, “I wanna — can we have our music, because this is another big one here? Minnesota, we’re ready to project Minnesota, rrright now. … Well, tonight we know that President Barack has won Minnesota,” she said.
