Reports of suspicious driving behavior leave 1 accused of DUI

There may be numerous scenarios in which a driver might find it difficult to maintain proper lane control, ranging anywhere from momentary distraction to fatigue. Unfortunately, it may also be easy to assume that such behavior could be the result of intoxication. A 37-year-old man has been arrested and is facing DUI charges after authorities received reports of a driver exhibiting suspicious behavior in California.

Law enforcement agents assert the incident began when they received reports of a driver who was constantly drifting in and out of a lane of traffic on a recent Thursday night. Witnesses also claim that, at one point, the driver stopped the vehicle near the road and exited it to use the bathroom. Upon locating the vehicle and initiating a routine traffic stop, police claim the driver appeared to be exhibiting signs of intoxication.

Police assert that field sobriety tests were administered, and the man was taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving. They also claim the man submitted to a breath test at a police station, which alleged indicated his blood alcohol content to be nearly four times the legal limit to drive. According to reports, the man also has a previous DUI on record, and a conviction for subsequent offenses carries serious penalties.

With the potential weight of a conviction for DUI charges, those accused of similar crimes may find it beneficial to seek guidance as soon as possible. By consulting with a defense attorney, a person in California could obtain advice on making informed decisions. An attorney can advise a client of the consequences he or she may face and subsequently assist in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible during legal proceedings.
