Claims of erratic driving behavior lead to drunk driving charges

It is no secret that being involved in a traffic stop can be a harrowing process under nearly any circumstance. Those facing a similar scenario might not always be fully prepared to handle what comes next, especially if the situation leads to allegations of unlawful behavior. A 54-year-old man in Wisconsin could be in search of guidance after he was accused of drunk driving during a recent traffic stop.

The incident is said to have occurred on a recent Monday after authorities say they came across a driver who was exhibiting erratic behavior. After allegedly seeing the vehicle shift in and out of the lanes of traffic while changing speeds frequently, police initiated a traffic stop. While speaking with the driver, they claim to have caught a strong odor of intoxicants coming from within the vehicle and say they spotted an open container of alcohol inside.

Authorities also claim that the man was unable to perform field sobriety tests in a satisfactory manner. They also assert that a subsequent breath test indicated his blood alcohol content to be over the legal limit to drive. He is now facing drunk driving charges in relation to the incident and with eight previous offenses on record, a conviction for a ninth offense would carry severe consequences.

Individuals who face felony drunk driving charges and wish to know how best to approach the situation could benefit from seeking guidance as soon as possible. By retaining the services of an experienced attorney, a person in Wisconsin could obtain much needed insight on all his or her available options. An attorney can help a client better understand what to expect from the process and assist him or her in creating a strategy to seek the most favorable outcome possible during subsequent court proceedings.
