"Drive Drunk, Go To Jail"
In Washington State, if you're caught driving "impaired" you go to jail prior to any trial.

However, it does take a trial to send someone subsequently into the penal system. Fox's statement does (at least the way he phrased it) imply that he possessed the personal authority to sent Scott to a penal colony, solely on his say so.

That's much better! What do I owe you?
I like seafood and a view of the sunset.
