After having one or two drinks, one's ability to make sound decisions is often affected. While the individual will recognize faulty logic under normal circumstances, this is not always the case once alcohol becomes involved. In some instances, the Illinois resident does not realize that he or she is not legally able to drive and ends up facing drunk driving charges.
In one recent instance, a wedding guest apparently had too much to drink. According to his statement, he and his passenger had both consumed alcoholic beverages at the wedding. Additionally, he indicated that he believed he was more sober than his passenger; therefore, it made more sense for him to be the one to drive home. Upon completing a breathalyzer test, officers indicate that the driver's blood alcohol level was approximately twice the legal limit.
