DUI suspect dances through the field sobriety test

A Florida man was in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time when he was recently arrested. Deputies say they came across a 33-year-old man who was sleeping in his pickup truck in Holiday. They allege they noticed the brake lights were on and found that the engine was running and the driver was asleep behind the wheel, but he had his foot on the brake. According to a police report, the DUI suspect thought he was in Clearwater, and he was under the impression that it was about 10 p.m. while the police report indicates that it was 2 a.m.

DUI manslaughter charges follow 2 Christmas Day deaths

Alleged drunk driving teacher faces criminal charges

In Florida and across the country, it is unacceptable to drive while impaired. Those in certain professions -- teachers, for example -- may find that being accused of drunk driving may threaten their professional livelihoods. With so much on the line, a teacher facing such accusations should waste no time in securing legal counsel.

How to avoid giving officers probable cause for a DUI stop

Law enforcement in Florida will be out in full force in the time leading up to the holidays. Now is the time of the year when there is no shortage of DUI traffic stops, and anyone who has a few alcoholic drinks before driving is at risk of being arrested for impaired driving. However, police officers cannot pull drivers over without probable cause, and avoiding questionable driving maneuvers, committing traffic violations or obvious defects on the vehicle might prevent an arrest.

DUI manslaughter charges filed after deaths of 3 linemen

A 37-year-old man is accused of causing the deaths of three linemen who were repairing damaged lines in the Florida Panhandle in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. The linemen were employees of a utility company. According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, the accident that led to DUI manslaughter and other charges occurred on a Wednesday night north of Panama City near Chipley.

Felony DUI charges follow crash causing serious injuries

A 47-year-old Tavernier man was arrested by Florida Highway Patrol deputies at a Holiday Inn in Key Largo three days after he allegedly caused damage to multiple vehicles and sent one man to the hospital with critical injuries. He now faces several charges, including one count of felony DUI. The incidents that led to the Thursday arrest occurred mid-morning on a recent Monday.

Driver arrested for drunk driving after fleeing traffic stop

Anyone in Florida who is accused of impaired driving will likely take the charges seriously. While some drivers might believe a first drunk driving charge is not too serious, any subsequent charges might have severe consequences. Stiff fines, extended jail times and a scarred permanent record might come into play for convictions of multiple DUI charges.

Alleged DUI driver hides under bridge after jumping into ocean

A 31-year-old Florida man was picked up by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission boat from where he was allegedly hiding from deputies after he jumped into the ocean. A spokesperson for the sheriff's department says this incident took place after a high-speed chase in the early morning hours of a recent Friday. The man was taken into custody, and he now faces several charges, including DUI, resisting arrest and property damage.

DUI: Suspected drunk driver caught with magic mushrooms and pot

Florida drivers whose driving seems erratic or reckless stand the risk of being reported to authorities. What follows could have an adverse impact on their lives. This was what happened when a 46-year-old Plantation man took to the Overseas Highway on a recent Saturday and he was pulled over for suspected DUI.

Drunk driving charges come in various levels of severity

Driving while impaired risks not only the life of the driver but also his or her passengers and other road users. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a driver to think his or her blood alcohol level is below the legal limit. While a Florida driver might think a drunk driving charge could be the worst thing that could happen, certain things can aggravate DUI charges to make them even worse.
