DUI charges filed after alleged impaired driver stopped officer

Teen faces multiple criminal charges after 2018 fatal crash

Miami police recently arrested an 18-year-old Florida man who was one of four teenage occupants of an SUV that was involved in a fatal crash in May 2018. The teenager, who was 16 years old at the time, lost a friend in that accident. He is now facing multiple criminal charges.

Mugshots still published even with no criminal charges filed

In 2017, Florida passed a law to stop the publishing of mugshots of people who were arrested but never charged. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement data shows that, in 2018, more than 700,000 people were arrested in Florida. This involved suspected drunk driving and many other offenses. A significant number of those who were arrested were released without any criminal charges being filed -- but not before their mugshots were taken.

A DUI conviction can ruin a college student's future

There is no getting away from the fact that college life in Florida can be stressful. Along with the studies, for many students, the financial burden is such that they have to take on part-time jobs to help pay their college fees. One common way to relieve stress is hanging out with friends and having a few drinks. That is perfectly fine, as long as they do not overindulge and then drive their cars. A DUI conviction can ruin a student's future.

Drivers who are pulled over at traffic stops in Florida and elsewhere may not realize that the breath testing devices used by offices might provide incorrect information.

More and more lawmakers are questioning the accuracy of Breathalyzer tests.

Cape Coral driver arrested after 4th DUI charge

When Florida police noticed a stationary car in a Cape Coral intersection on a recent Sunday, they stopped to investigate.

DUI manslaughter charges follows high speed rear-end crash

Driving under the influence of alcohol in Florida can have severe consequences.
