Roger Avary has managed to make Sidney Blumenthal look like a responsible citizen.

Avary – an Academy Award-winning screenwriter for Pulp Fiction and scribe behind the recent film Beowulf – was arrested for drunk driving in Ventura County over the weekend. That’s bad enough. But it gets much worse.

The moron crashed his car in the process, causing his wife, Gretchen Avary, to be ejected from the vehicle; she was later transported to Ojai Valley Community Hospital, where she’s listed in stable condition.

But one of the passengers wasn’t so fortunate: Andreas Zini died.

Avary was booked into Ventura County Jail and charged with manslaughter and DUI. He was later released on $50,000 bail.

Lock him up: Roger Avary got drunk, drove, crashed and killed a man.
