Report of damaged car leads to drunk driving charges in Illinois

On Behalf of | Mar 27, 2017 | Uncategorized

Facing charges for driving under the influence of alcohol can be stressful for anyone. Accusations alone can have a significant impact on a person’s future, and the process of defending against similar charges can be complex. A man in Illinois may be experiencing similar difficulty after he was recently arrested and is now being accused of drunk driving.

Police claim to have received a call about a nearby car with significant damage to its front wheel. Upon arrival, they claim that the vehicle was inoperable and that the driver appeared to be under the influence. The 21-year-old driver was taken into custody shortly after and is facing charges for driving while intoxicated.

So far, there has been no indication of how authorities came to believe the man was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident. No report of the performance of field sobriety tests was available, and at the time of arrest, the vehicle was apparently stationary. A conviction of this nature is severe and can impact an individual in many ways, prompting many to seek assistance in defending against the charges.

Challenging drunk driving charges alone can be difficult, prompting many to seek assistance during this stressful period. When facing a similar situation, a person in Illinois may wish to speak with an experienced attorney for assistance in the process. An attorney can evaluate the circumstances of the arrest and help an individual form a strong defense to assist him or her in obtaining the most favorable outcome overall given the situation.
