Incident in parking lot leads to DUI charges for 1

A California man has recently been accused of driving under the influence in relation to his alleged involvement in an incident that is said to have taken place in the parking lot of a local shopping center. In addition to felony DUI charges, he also stands accused of assault. Those who face similar charges could choose to prepare for upcoming legal proceedings by seeking guidance from a defense attorney.

According to police, witnesses claim the man was spotted harassing minors in the parking lot of a store. After getting into his vehicle, the man allegedly drove toward two individuals at a high rate of speed, nearly striking them in the process. Upon arriving at the location, authorities claim the man fled the scene and led them on a short pursuit before crashing his car into another vehicle on a nearby highway.

The drivers of both vehicles were taken to the hospital for medical care. The man was arrested soon thereafter and accused of driving under the influence and assault with a deadly weapon. No information was provided concerning the methods used to determine whether impairment was a contributing factor, and the incident reportedly remains under investigation.

Due to the severe nature of the potential consequences for DUI charges, the man may be in search of guidance on how best to proceed. Those who face such charges could consider retaining the services of an experienced attorney for assistance in forming a strong defense. An attorney can provide a client in California with advice on the potential consequences he or she may face and assist with any further legal proceedings associated with the charges.
