Man arrested for drunk driving blows 0.00

When Pennsylvanians are arrested for drunk driving, the news is often made public and it quickly finds it way to friends, family members, and even acquaintances. For this reason, it is critically important for law enforcement to ensure that anyone that they arrest for drunk driving is above the legal limit.

When a Texas man was pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, he was asked to take a breathalyzer test, which he did not refuse. Even though the breath test showed that the man had no alcohol in his system, officers arrested him anyway. According to the police department, the officer pulled him over because he ran a red light, and it’s possible that he was impaired by drugs or some other substance that didn’t show up on the breath test.

Fortunately, prosecutors sided with the man. He was released and will avoid prosecution for DUI charges. In fact, it is possible that he will decide to file a lawsuit against the police department for the false arrest and for defamation. News of his arrest may have tarnished his reputation in the community. In the meantime, he is working to clear his arrest record with the help of his attorney. It is unknown if the man has any previous DUI arrests.

Anyone who is arrested for drunk driving may want to seek the help of an attorney as soon as possible. If an attorney is able to prove that law enforcement did not sufficient evidence of intoxication, they may be able to help their client avoid or reduce the penalties for drunk driving.
