A near-miss leads to drunk driving charges for 1

Nearly avoiding a collision can be a scary experience, and such an event can happen under a multitude of scenarios. Those who are involved in a near-miss may leave the incident feeling shaken up but thankful that no one was harmed in the process. Unfortunately, a similar circumstance has left a 43-year-old man accused of his fourth offense for drunk driving in Wisconsin.

The incident reportedly took place just after 2 a.m. on a recent Friday. According to reports, a law enforcement agent was out on patrol when a nearby vehicle suddenly veered across the center line. The deputy was reportedly able to swerve and avoid collision, and a traffic stop was initiated shortly thereafter. During the stop, police claim to have found the man to be exhibiting sings of impairment.

Although it remains unclear if field sobriety or breath tests were initiated, the man was taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving. According to reports, he already has three previous convictions for similar offenses on record, and he is also facing similar charges from a previous date that are currently pending. He is now facing felony drunk driving charges, and a conviction for similar charges carries serious consequences.

Facing felony drunk driving charges can be a stressful and daunting process. Those who are charged with similar offenses may find it advisable to speak with an attorney early on for guidance on how best to prepare for what comes next. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence against a client in Wisconsin and assist him or her in developing a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable during subsequent legal proceedings.
