It can be humiliating to be arrested on drunk driving charges. Fortunately, every person who is charged with drunk driving has the right to defend him or herself against the charge he or she faces. One woman in California is currently facing charges after being arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated.
One high-profile man in California was recently arrested after police said he was driving while intoxicated. The alleged drunk driving incident took place in the area of Highway 99, where Councilman Michael Tubbs was apparently heading south. At the time of his reported arrest, his blood alcohol content was close to double the legal limit of .08, police said.
Being arrested for drunk driving offenses in California can have dire consequences. Even for a first offense, one's driving privileges can be taken away and stiff fines may be assessed if a conviction is ultimately obtained. Furthermore, jail time and/or community service could be ordered in appropriate cases. Moreover, a drunk driving arrest -- in and of itself -- can cause pandemonium in one's work and personal life.
