Drunk driving arrest stems from a car parked in traffic

Motorists were recently stuck behind a compact car stopped at the intersection of Reef Road and Fairfield Beach Road and remained there. Other drivers pulled up behind the car, but it stayed where it was, still running. This happened just around 2 a.m. on Feb. 15.

While some drivers called the police, others approached the car and attempted to open the doors, but none were successful. The police responded quickly and were able to get the driver to open the door.

Inside, they found a 20-year-old man who they said was clearly intoxicated. In the center console of the car was a beer can that was opened. Police asked the man for his license and he produced one, but it had falsified dates. He told the officers that he did not have a valid license. They took him out of the car, and he failed field sobriety tests. At this point, the young man was arrested and the car was removed from traffic so that other drivers could get through the intersection.

It is fortunate that there were not any accidents in this case, as it would have been very easy for the driver to either continue on his way and cause an accident or stay where he was, impeding traffic until that led to an accident. Drivers who are the victims of drunk driving accidents can turn to lawyers who can help present a case for damages stemming from injuries sustained in the crash. Compensation can also be sought for pain and suffering and property damage to a vehicle.
