Alleged high-speed pursuit leaves 1 accused of drunk driving

A man is reportedly facing numerous charges after allegedly leading police on a high-speed pursuit while operating under the influence of alcohol in Wisconsin. Attempting to evade authorities is never advisable and may only increase the severity of the charges a person faces. Those who stand accused of drunk driving under similar circumstances face serious consequences should a conviction be obtained, and they may benefit from obtaining advice on how best to approach the situation as soon as the charges are filed.

Law enforcement agents assert the incident began on a recent Tuesday evening when they received reports of a confrontation at a local convenience store. A witness claims to have confronted a driver at the store after watching him operate a vehicle at excessive speeds. While speaking to the man, the witness allegedly caught a strong scent of alcohol emanating from him and informed authorities that he drove away from the scene soon thereafter.

Upon locating the vehicle and attempting to initiate a traffic stop, police claim the driver began to lead them on a pursuit that allegedly reached speeds in excess of 100 mph. They also assert that he struck another vehicle during the pursuit, and after eventually stopping in the parking lot of a medical facility, he was placed under arrest. After a breath test allegedly indicated his blood alcohol content to be over the legal limit to operate a vehicle, he was charged with drunk driving.

Drunk driving charges carry serious penalties if a conviction is obtained, and those who stand accused of similar offenses may find it advisable to seek guidance early on. By speaking with a defense attorney, a person in Wisconsin could obtain some much-needed advice on the potential consequences he or she may face and what to expect from the process. An attorney can examine the circumstances a client is facing and provide him or her with guidance in making informed decisions during subsequent court proceedings.
