Nobody leaves the bar intending to get a DUI. Despite that, dozens if not hundreds of people in Kansas City find themselves in the backs of cop cars every weekend for driving over the limit. There’s no shortage of penalties for a DUI conviction, but one of the most debilitating is losing your driver’s license.
Car accidents can happen for a variety of different reasons. While sometimes it is a simple oversight or the result of poor judgment, police officers in Missouri and across the country may be quick to assume that alcohol was involved, especially if the driver involved is young and has a previous arrest on his or her record. Unfortunately, a young man was recently accused of drunk driving after a car accident.
Traffic stops happen relatively frequently in Missouri and across the country. Often, they are uneventful. Police will issue a citation, and both parties will continue on their way. However, a recent traffic stop reportedly resulted in drug charges after police reportedly found drugs and other items in a man's rental vehicle.
