Close call with concrete barrier leads to drunk driving charges

As a driver, nearly becoming involved in a collision can be a scary experience. Unfortunately, even if an accident is avoided entirely, others nearby may consider the incident suspicious in nature. A 50-year-old man is reportedly facing drunk driving charges after a recent incident involving a close call with a concrete barrier in Wisconsin.

The incident reportedly took place after authorities claimed to have encountered a driver who was exhibiting difficulty maintaining proper lane control in the early hours of a recent Saturday morning. After allegedly witnessing the vehicle come close to striking a nearby concrete barrier, officers initiated a traffic stop. During the stop, they claim the man was exhibiting signs of impairment.

While being questioned by police, the man allegedly admitted to drinking two beers prior to operating the vehicle. Field sobriety tests were initiated soon thereafter, and he was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol. According to reports, the man has six previous drunk driving offenses on record, and a conviction for a seventh offense would have serious consequences that could impact his life substantially.

When it comes to drunk driving charges, each successive offense carries increased penalties. With the potential gravity of a conviction, those who face similar charges may find it advisable to seek guidance from an attorney early in the process. An attorney in Wisconsin can examine the charges and evidence against a client and provide guidance in making informed decisions about his or her case. If a conviction is unavoidable, an attorney can assist a client in pursuing a lesser sentence during subsequent court proceedings.
