Wisconsin man facing DUI charges following traffic stop

A 54-year-old man has been arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol following a recent traffic stop in Wisconsin. DUI charges carry serious consequences should a conviction be obtained, which may increase in severity with each successive offense. Those who face similar charges may find it beneficial to prepare for subsequent legal proceedings by focusing on their defense with guidance from an attorney.

According to authorities, the incident took place on a recent Sunday when an officer allegedly discovered that a driver was operating a vehicle on a suspended license. The officer proceeded to initiate a traffic stop, and upon approaching the driver, claims to have caught wind of the odor of alcohol. He says the man exhibited signs of intoxication. The officer also asserts that the man admitted to drinking alcohol at a restaurant while waiting for his food prior to driving home.

The officer then proceeded to administer field sobriety tests, which he asserts the man was unable to perform in a satisfactory manner. A subsequent breath test allegedly indicated his blood alcohol content to be above the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle. He was taken into custody soon thereafter and charged with driving under the influence, which would reportedly be his fifth offense.

Those accused of DUI may find the subsequent process to be stressful and intimidating. When facing a similar situation, one could benefit from speaking with a defense attorney for guidance on making informed decisions throughout the process. An attorney can thoroughly examine the circumstances a client in Wisconsin is facing and assist in forming a strong defense for use during court proceedings.
