DUI: 1 accused of operating electric scooter while impaired

After a night out on the town having drinks with family or friends, many individuals in California may choose to forgo operating a motor vehicle and pursue alternate forms of transportation. However, a person might find it advisable to take care when choosing another method of travel, as operating any manner of vehicle during this time could lead to criminal charges. A 41-year-old man has reportedly received a citation for DUI after allegedly operating an electric scooter while impaired.

According to reports, the incident occurred on a recent Monday after the man rented an electric scooter. Authorities assert that he drove the scooter into the path of another vehicle and caused an accident. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries soon thereafter, and he was reportedly given a citation for suspicion of operating the scooter while under the influence of alcohol.

When it comes to drunk driving charges, a person's first thought may turn to allegations of driving a car or truck while impaired. However, one could face similar charges for driving or riding any manner of vehicle while under the influence. This could include anything from a scooter to a bicycle, and the penalties for a conviction for similar charges are severe.

Regardless of how it occurs, those who face DUI charges may benefit from seeking guidance in the early stages of the process. When facing a similar situation, a person could choose to retain the services of a defense attorney. An attorney can help a client in California gain a better understanding of his or her available options and assist him or her in making informed decisions during subsequent court proceedings.
