It might not be all that uncommon for close friends to disagree from time to time. Should a heated argument break out while those involved are traveling in a vehicle, the driver may find it advisable to pull over until the matter is resolved. A recent incident in which two friends in Wisconsin began to argue over a popular television series while one was driving has reportedly left one of them facing drunk driving charges.
Law enforcement agents say the incident took place just before 1 a.m. on a recent Monday. According to reports, an argument over the popular television serious "How I Met Your Mother" had erupted between two friends as they were returning home in a vehicle from a social establishment. The argument allegedly led to a physical altercation between the two.
Authorities say they arrived at the scene shortly thereafter and noticed visible signs of injury on both men. While speaking with them, police claim to have discovered both were exhibiting signs of impairment and say they admitted to getting into a fight while one of them was driving. While many of the details surrounding the subsequent investigation remain unclear, the man believed to have been driving the vehicle was arrested and is now facing felony drunk driving charges.
Facing felony drunk driving charges can be a scary and intimidating process under any circumstance. Those who stand accused of such offenses and wish to gain insight on making informed decisions about their situation could benefit from speaking with an attorney for guidance on their available options. An attorney in Wisconsin can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and assist him or her in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable during court proceedings.
