Missouri man may face felony charge after alleged drunk driving

For some criminal offenses, there may be stipulations that could cause a charge to be increased to a felony. When it comes to driving while intoxicated, multiple convictions and continued offenses could lead to a felony DWI charge. One man in Missouri could be at risk of such charges after he was recently taken into custody for alleged drunk driving. 

Reportedly, the man was behind the wheel of a vehicle that was presumably stopped when authorities approached it. It was unclear how police became alerted to the driver, but it was mentioned that the 27-year-old man was discovered slumped over while in the driver's seat of a vehicle. The car was apparently on and in drive at the time.

Missouri man may face immediate driver's license suspension

In order to handle their legal cases in the manner they see most fitting, individuals accused of DUI-related offenses will likely want to explore their options. By doing so, parties may be able to prepare and present a meaningful defense that could potentially help them work toward avoiding certain punishments, including an administrative driver's license suspension. One man in Missouri may be looking to take such action after he was recently taken into custody.

Reportedly, the 21-year-old man was at the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant when police were purportedly alerted to a disturbance at that location. It was unclear what the alleged disturbance may have been or who contacted police. Authorities apparently made contact with the man and suspected that he was under the influence. He is a starting safety for the Northwest Missouri State football team.

Creating a defense could help avoid suspended license in Missouri

Being in a predicament in which criminal charges have been leveled against an individual can be difficult. One man in Missouri is currently facing such dilemma after being charged for allegedly driving while intoxicated. If the man is convicted of such allegations, he could potentially face a suspended license as a punishment. However, he does have the opportunity to create and present a defense.

The incident reportedly took place when the 22-year-old man was traveling north in an SUV. The vehicle apparently failed to stay on the road after crossing the center dividing line. As a result, the SUV went off the left side of the street and flipped. The vehicle also reportedly hit a tree before it finally came to a stop. The man was reported as suffering moderate injuries in the incident.

DWI expungement may interest first-time offenders in Missouri

After a recent accident took place in Missouri, the driver involved was charged with driving while intoxicated. That individual reportedly pleaded guilty to the charges that were leveled against him. Because this is his first offense, he may have the opportunity to pursue DWI expungement in the future, if he is interested in potentially clearing the mark from his record.

Reportedly, the 34-year-old man was driving an SUV when he struck an individual who was in a crosswalk. According to a witness, the pedestrian was hit by the right front of the vehicle and he then flew into the air, hitting the windshield and then coming to a rest in the street. The driver reportedly left the scene at first, but he came back while the pedestrian was being treated. 

Man may wish to avoid suspended license in Missouri

It was recently reported that one man in Missouri was taken into custody on suspicion of DWI after a car accident. As a result of the potential charges that could be leveled against him, he could potentially be at risk of a suspended license. However, the man does have the opportunity to create and present a criminal defense against the allegations, and gathering information on such tactics could be prudent.

Reportedly, the man was driving an SUV when he collided with a stopped vehicle. That vehicle and two others were apparently stopped on the interstate due to a bicycle being in the roadway. The initial collision purportedly caused a chain reaction, and two additional vehicles were involved in the crash. The driver of the SUV was apparently the only individual to suffer injuries.

Fatal DWI accident leads to charges for Missouri man

Legal issues can often arise from car accidents that result in fatalities. It was recently reported that a fatal DWI accident took place in Missouri, and the driver of the single vehicle that was involved is currently facing charges. That man is likely focused on determining what his best options may be for moving forward with a criminal defense.

Reports stated that the 34-year-old man was driving a car south when he allegedly failed to remain in the proper lane. The vehicle crossed over the northbound lane and went off the left side of the road. After leaving the roadway, the vehicle then collided with a tree. It was noted that there was a female passenger in the vehicle when the crash took place. The passenger reportedly suffered fatal injuries and was declared dead on the scene. 

Woman charged for repeat DWI, other violations, in Missouri

If an individual is charged for a crime that he or she has been convicted of in the past, it is possible that the individual could face more serious charges. One woman in Missouri is currently facing charges for being a repeat DWI offender as well as additional charges. It was reported that the woman was driving a vehicle and was involved in an accident when she purportedly crashed in the rear of a stopped car.

The woman reportedly exited her vehicle after the accident and purportedly attempted to get rid of a small box. When authorities arrived at the scene, witnesses told police where the woman allegedly threw the box. After locating the box, officers reportedly found methamphetamine, cash and other drug paraphernalia inside. 

Alleged DWI crash leads to death, charges in Missouri

When a car accident results in the death of an individual, the driver considered at fault could face criminal charges. If authorities suspect that the driver was under the influence, the potential consequences that individual could face could be severe. One driver in Missouri is currently facing charges after being accused of causing a fatal DWI crash. 

Reports stated that the 18-year-old man was driving a car when he failed to stay on the roadway while going through a curve. After leaving the road, the vehicle flipped multiple times and crashed into a tree before stopping on its side. A passenger in the vehicle was ejected during the crash. She was reported as being 17 years old. 

Immediate driver's license suspension may affect Missouri man

In some situations, authorities are alerted to drivers who are reportedly not driving safely. That was apparently the case in a recent incident in Missouri that led to a driver being taken into custody. He is now likely facing possible driver's license suspension. Reports stated that police had received a tip about a driver who had allegedly been weaving in and out of his lane while traveling on the roadway. 

The officer stopped the vehicle and informed the driver that he was stopped due to weaving. The driver reportedly told the officer that he had been texting. During the stop, the driver allegedly gave the officer an expired insurance card, and the officer requested that the man step out of his vehicle and go to the patrol vehicle. The officer also stated that the driver's eyes were bloodshot. 

Driver's license suspension may be risk after Missouri accident

After being involved in a car accident, a driver may have many concerns. If that individual is accused of driving under the influence, he or she may be worried about driver's license suspension and other possible punishments. Additionally, that individual may be interested in ways to defend against DWI allegations. One man in Missouri may be looking into his options after recently facing a similar predicament.

It was reported that a 29-year-old man was allegedly driving a pickup truck when he reportedly failed to maintain the right lane. As a result, his pickup apparently veered off the left side of the roadway and collided with a fence and a tree. The reported incident resulted in the man suffering moderate injuries, and he was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.
