Before leaving his barracks for the last time, Navy Seaman Robert "Colton" Wright texted a friend a photo of a box of 16-ounce Coors Light cans along with a message: "Couldn't wait dude."

That was at 2:40 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, a little less than two hours before Wright left Naval Air Station Oceana to buy a bottle of Jack Daniels, sodas and some Pedialyte, a known hangover remedy. Shortly before 10 p.m., witnesses who called 911 described "mayhem" as Wright, 21, left a string of hit-and-runs before slamming his black 2012 Dodge Ram pickup through the master jet base’s unmanned closed back gate. https://pilotonline.com/news/military/local/article_4864eadc-d80f-11e8-9567-b3f2c3f8a65e.html
