Truck driver faces drunk driving charges for fatal January crash

On Jan. 22, a 61-year-old Florida man lost his life in a road accident. In the same crash, his 56-year-old wife and 31-year-old son also died. Now, almost nine months later, a 31-year-old Ocala man has been arrested for causing the fatal drunk driving accident. Reportedly, the deceased man was a congressional candidate in 2016.

Woman accused of drunk driving had unrestrained toddler in car

Failing a breathalyzer test is likely any driver's worst nightmare. When there is also an unrestrained toddler in the car, it could lead to even more severe charges. Florida drivers who are arrested for drunk driving may not know what will happen next and how to defend him or herself against the accusations. Fortunately, nobody needs to do this without help.

Driver charged with DUI in his own driveway

Drivers in most states will know that it is illegal to have open alcoholic beverage containers in their cars, although laws vary from state to state. However, those in Florida may not realize that they can be charged with DUI if their passengers have unsealed alcohol containers in the vehicle. Furthermore, it is even unlawful for drivers and passengers to have open alcohol containers while they are seated in or on parked vehicles in areas accessible to the public -- not restricted to roads.

DUI charges? Mistakes to avoid during a field sobriety test

Any driver can be pulled off the road in a traffic stop in Florida. If law enforcement suspects a driver of DUI, a field sobriety test may be requested. If the driver is sober, he or she might be anxious to demonstrate that, and if a person was driving under the influence of alcohol, the prospect of being charged might cause undue anxiety. Doing what the officer orders while under such stress can be difficult, but there are certain errors that a driver must try to avoid during a field sobriety test.

Could auto-brewery syndrome be the cause of your DUI?

Being charged with a DUI in Florida can be a stressful experience, but this situation can be even more difficult if you do not believe you were drunk. While any alcohol can lead to intoxication, it generally takes a substantial amount to increase your blood alcohol concentration to above the legal limit. If you believe that you did not consume enough alcohol to result in a high BAC, a rare intestinal condition may be to blame.

Another Tiger Woods DUI video released

He stands there as those without his global fame, his millions of dollars and his golf titles have stood there before him. A video of golf icon Tiger Woods was recently released, showing him handcuffed and humbled, taking a breathalyzer test in a county jail about two hours east of Fort Myers.

Former Florida State Park Director facing DUI

The former Florida State Park Director is keeping a rapid pace. Lisa Edgar resigned her job as head of the state’s park service less than two months after taking the position, and now, less than two months after her resignation, has found herself charged with drinking and driving.

It's a wrap: Rapper charged with DUI, marijuana possession

He is just 21 years old, but has already been signed to a major label recording deal, been dropped by the label, formed his own record company, retired and unretired. Now rapper Chief Keef is focusing on legal troubles that include a recent arrest for driving under the influence of so-called "sizzurp," a mix of codeine cough syrup and soda.

Factors that may impact the accuracy of your breath test

If you find yourself charged with drunk driving, the penalties can be quite harsh. Once you are pulled over on suspicion of drinking and driving, you will likely be asked to submit to a breath test so that authorities can determine whether you have enough alcohol in your bloodstream to exceed the legal limit. The results of that breath test can have major effects on your finances, your career and even your personal relationships moving forward, so it is critical that your breathalyzer device is working and administered properly. There are several factors that can hinder the breathalyzer's ability to do its job, and the breathalyzer itself, too, must meet certain standards. Factors that can lead to an inaccurate breathalyzer reading include:
