High-speed chase leads to drunk driving charges for 1

Operating a vehicle at excessive speeds is never advisable and may increase the odds of being involved in a routine traffic stop. Should a person attempt to evade a traffic stop, the potential penalties one might face may only increase in severity. Unfortunately, a recent incident in which a driver allegedly led police on a high speed pursuit has left an 18-year-old woman in Wisconsin accused of drunk driving.

Law enforcement agents assert the incident began on a recent Tuesday morning as they encountered a vehicle traveling at excessive speeds. Upon attempting to initiate a traffic stop, they claim the driver refused to stop and led them on a short pursuit, reaching speeds as high as 100 mph in the process. Police assert that the chase came to a halt after the vehicle struck a nearby curb.

After allegedly attempting to flee the scene on foot, the driver was taken into custody. While investigating the matter, police claim to have located a bottle of alcohol inside the vehicle. Although many of the details surrounding the arrest remain unclear, the woman reportedly stands accused of driving under the influence of alcohol, along with a slew of other charges, and could face as many as 20 years behind bars if a conviction is obtained.

Being accused of drunk driving can be a harrowing process and those who face similar charges might be uncertain how best to approach the situation. Fortunately, there are attorneys that can help a person in Wisconsin make informed decisions about his or her case and assist in forming a strong defense. Should a conviction be unavoidable, an attorney can assist a client in pursuing a lesser sentence during court proceedings.
