Ignition interlock device leads to drunk driving charges for 1

Many individuals have encountered a circumstance in life that has required them to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicles. These devices may help allow them to continue to use their vehicles to travel to and from their required destinations. A recent incident in which an interlock ignition device caused a woman's hazard lights to start flashing has reportedly left her facing drunk driving charges in Wisconsin.

The incident is said to have occurred on a recent Wednesday after officers claimed to have encountered a vehicle with flashing hazard lights. Authorities also assert that the driver was honking the horn of the vehicle. As officers investigated the situation, the driver allegedly informed them that her interlock ignition device was indicating the presence of a violation.

Law enforcement agents assert that field sobriety tests were administered soon thereafter. While no further information about the investigation was provided, authorities state that the woman was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of operating while impaired. According to reports, she is facing what would be her fifth drunk driving offense should a conviction be obtained.

Felony drunk driving charges carry serious consequences that could have a lingering impact on a person's future should a conviction be obtained. Those who wish to better understand what to expect from the subsequent process could benefit from retaining the services of an experienced attorney as soon as possible for guidance on how best to proceed. An attorney can help a client in Wisconsin make informed decisions about the situation and assist him or her in pursuing the most favorable outcome possible during court proceedings.
