Incident leaves tourist facing drunk driving charges in Wisconsin

One person has been arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle while under the influence following reports of a disturbance involving a tourist in Wisconsin. Being accused of unlawful behavior while visiting another area can be a stressful and daunting experience. Those who face drunk driving charges under similar circumstances might not be fully prepared to handle what comes next and the outcome of the situation could have a significant impact on their lives.

Authorities say the incident began after they responded to reports of a disturbance at a local establishment on a recent Monday. They say that a man attempted to drive away from the scene of the incident soon thereafter, allegedly crashing into a police car in the process. Authorities say they followed the vehicle to a nearby parking lot and while speaking with the driver, they claim to have noticed signs of unlawful behavior.

While it remains unclear what led authorities to suspect the presence of impairment, the man was reportedly taken into custody soon thereafter. He is now facing drunk driving charges in connection with the incident. They say the man was a tourist from another state and assert that he has no previous offenses on record in Wisconsin.

Even a first offense for drunk driving carries severe consequences if a conviction is obtained. Those who face similar charges and wish to better understand all their available options could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney for guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney in Wisconsin can work toward protecting a client's legal rights and assist him or her in preparing to see the best outcome achievable during subsequent court proceedings.
