There may be a multitude of scenarios in which a driver may feel it necessary to pull off the side of the road. A vehicle malfunction or a medical emergency are just two examples of circumstances that could prompt a similar response. A recent incident in which authorities pulled over to check on two motorcycle riders under similar circumstances has left two men accused of drunk driving in Wisconsin.

The incident is said to have taken place on a recent Sunday morning after authorities claim to have encountered two motorcycles parked on the side of the road. Upon stopping to check on the riders, authorities claim to have discovered both men to be exhibiting signs of impairment. Although no further details were provided as to what might have led to this conclusion, officers reportedly initiated field sobriety tests soon thereafter.

The incident is said to have taken place on a recent Monday just before 2:30 p.m. Law enforcement agents claim to have initiated a traffic stop after encountering a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed while in a construction zone.

The incident reportedly began on a recent Monday morning after police claim to have received a call about a slow moving vehicle.

A 38-year-old man was recently arrested and accused of drunk driving after allegedly attempting to evade authorities by jumping into a nearby lake in Wisconsin.

The incident is said to have taken place on a recent Saturday when police claim to have encountered a driver exhibiting erratic behavior.

Although dealing with the fallout of an accident can be a stressful process, leaving the scene of the crash is never advisable. Even if no other vehicles are involved, any damage to another party's property could prompt an investigation into the incident and a decision to flee the scene may only increase the severity of the charges one might face. A school principal in Wisconsin has been placed on administrative leave after a recent investigation into a single-vehicle crash left him accused of drunk driving.

The incident is said to have taken place on a recent Thursday when officers encountered a utility pole that was laying in the road and blocking traffic. They also claim to have noticed a trail of radiator fluid leading away from the scene.
