Early morning traffic stop leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges

Facing allegations of operative a vehicle while impaired can be a stressful and scary process. With the potential gravity of a conviction for drunk driving charges looming overhead, those who face a similar scenario may also feel somewhat intimidating by the experience and uncertain how best to proceed. A 41-year-old man in Wisconsin could be in search of guidance after he was arrested and accused of drunk driving during a recent traffic stop.

According to reports, the incident is said to have taken place just after 4 a.m. on a recent Saturday. Authorities claim to have encountered a driver who was struggling to maintain proper lane control and say a traffic stop was initiated shortly thereafter. While speaking with the driver, they allegedly noticed an odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle and assert the man appeared to be showing signs of impairment.

Law enforcement agents say field sobriety tests were administered and state the man was subsequently taken into custody. They also claim that a warrant was obtained for a blood draw after he refused to comply with requests to provide a sample. According to reports, the man is facing what would be his fifth drunk driving offense should a conviction be obtained.

Successive convictions for drunk driving charges carry severe penalties that could have a lingering impact on a person's life. Those who face similar charges and wish to obtain insight into the consequences they might face could find it beneficial to retain the services of an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney in Wisconsin can evaluate the incident thoroughly, along with the charges and evidence against a client, and assist him or her in developing a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable during subsequent court proceedings.
