High-speed pursuit leads to drunk driving charges for 1

Navigating the criminal justice system can be a stressful and intimidating process. Without the necessary legal experience, those who face criminal charges may feel somewhat overwhelmed and in need of guidance in understanding their rights and available options. A 27-year-old man could be in search of such advice after he was accused of drunk driving following an alleged police pursuit that is said to have taken place in Wisconsin.

According to reports, law enforcement agents claim the incident began when the driver of a vehicle struck a squad car and proceeded to flee the scene at around 3:30 a.m. on a recent Saturday. They claim this initiated a brief pursuit that was allegedly called off after the driver reached speeds in excess of 130 mph. Police claim to have located the vehicle shortly thereafter and say that they were able to bring the pursuit to an end with use of stop sticks.

While speaking with the driver, authorities assert that he exhibited signs of impairment. They say that field sobriety tests were initiated and that the man was taken into custody on suspicion of impairment shortly thereafter. In addition to drunk driving charges, he was also issued citations for multiple traffic offenses and charged with reckless endangerment of safety.

When additional charges are involved, the potential consequences for a conviction for drunk driving may only increase in severity. Those who face a similar scenario could benefit from consulting with an experienced attorney early on for guidance in understanding the consequences they might face and assistance in forming a strong defense. An attorney in Wisconsin can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and if a conviction cannot be avoided, assist him or her in pursuing a lesser sentence during subsequent court proceedings.
