The Fourth of July Holiday usually involves gathering with friends and family for cookouts, having a few beers and hopefully enjoying nice weather. Unfortunately, it is also an occasion when many people get arrested for Operating while Intoxicated (OWI) or Driving under the Influence (DUI). Each Fourth of July Holiday, local law enforcement agencies increase patrols focusing on pulling over and arresting suspected OWI/DUI offenders. This year will be no different.
If you or someone you know is arrested for alleged OWI/ DUI it is important to consult an attorney as soon as possible to learn of any potential challenges to the stop or arrest. It is also very important to make sure you do not miss crucial deadlines which could make defending your OWI/DUI case much more difficult. In addition to learning of legal challenges, involving a lawyer immediately can make all the difference as to whether you are able to keep your operating privileges.
