1 charged with DUI following alleged pursuit in California

Being involved in a routine traffic stop can be a stressful and harrowing experience. However, attempting to evade a traffic stop is never advisable and may only lead law enforcement agents to have increased suspicion of unlawful activity. A 46-year-old man has been arrested and accused of DUI after allegedly leading police on a short pursuit during a recent incident in California.

The incident reportedly began when authorities encountered a driver who was suspected of traveling over the speed limit at around 10:30 p.m. on a recent Tuesday. Police claim that upon attempting to initiate a traffic stop, the driver refused to comply. Although they assert that he continued to move at or below the speed limit during this period, he allegedly refused to stop his vehicle.

After a short period, law enforcement agents claim they were able to stop the vehicle by deploying tire deflation devices. The driver was taken into custody soon thereafter, and during a subsequent search of his vehicle, police claim to have located an opened container of alcohol. He is reportedly facing numerous charges in relation to the alleged incident, including accusations of evading an officer and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Due to the stressful nature of a similar experience, those who face DUI charges may feel somewhat overwhelmed and uncertain how to proceed. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can provide a person in California with assistance in navigating the criminal justice system. An attorney can evaluate the charges and evidence a client is facing and assist him or her in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent legal proceedings.
