1 accused of drunk driving after car breaks down in the road

Having a vehicle break down in the middle of the road can be a stressful and potentially embarrassing experience. As it can be difficult to move a car out of traffic alone, such a situation may force a person to have to sit back and wait for help to arrive. Unfortunately, an incident involving similar circumstances has also left a 55-year-old man in Wisconsin accused of drunk driving.

According to reports, the incident began after law enforcement agents say they received a call about a possible car versus deer accident on a recent Monday night. Upon arriving at the scene, officers say they found that a man's vehicle had broken down in the middle of the road. However, there was no mention of whether an accident had actually occurred, and his vehicle was towed away from the scene soon thereafter.

While many of the details concerning what led police to believe that the man was impaired remain unclear, they reportedly requested that he perform field sobriety tests. He was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of driving while under the influence. According to reports, this would be his fifth offense for drunk driving should a conviction be obtained.

The penalties for a conviction for drunk driving increase with each successive offense. Those who face similar charges may find it advisable to seek assistance in preparing for what comes next as soon as possible, and they could choose to do so by retaining the services of an experienced attorney. An attorney in Wisconsin can help a client become better informed on all his or her available options and assist in forming a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable during subsequent court proceedings.
