Pursuit leads to drunk driving charges for 1 in California

It is no secret that being accused of a crime can be a scary and stressful experience. Since the criminal justice system can be complex and challenging to navigate, the average person may lack the necessary legal knowledge to know how to handle a similar circumstance. A 24-year-old man could be in search of guidance after he was accused of drunk driving during a recent incident in California.

The incident is said to have began just before 5 a.m. on a recent Sunday morning. According to reports, police claim to have encountered a vehicle that was traveling at a high rate of speed and swerving in and out of the lanes of traffic. After attempting to initiate a traffic stop, officers claim the driver fled the scene and led them on a brief pursuit, allegedly reaching speeds of up to 80 mph in the process.

Law enforcement agents assert that the pursuit ended after the driver lost control of the vehicle and collided with a nearby tree. While it remains unclear how they came to suspect the presence of impairment, the man was taken into custody shortly thereafter. He is reportedly facing multiple charges following the incident, including drunk driving charges and felony charges for evading police.

With the potential weight of a conviction for drunk driving looming overhead, those who face similar charges could benefit from seeking guidance as soon as possible. By consulting with an attorney, a person in California could obtain insight into how best to prepare for what comes next. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence against a client and assist in forming a strategy to pursue the best outcome achievable during subsequent legal proceedings.
