Missouri man taken into custody for alleged repeat DWI

When an individual has been accused of a crime, it is important that that party understands his or her situation. Because various circumstances of an alleged event can come into play, an individual may wish to know how the details of his or her case will affect the situation. If a party has been taken into custody for allegedly drinking and driving and is considered a repeat DWI offender, his or her situation may be carried out differently than a first time offender.

One man in Missouri was recently taken into custody for allegedly driving while intoxicated, and his previous record may come into play.

One driver in Missouri could be hoping to avoid such an outcome after he was taken into custody.

This punishment, however, can be challenged.

A recent report stated that a man in Missouri declined to submit to a breath test. It was reported that the man had been taking pictures at a police checkpoint, although he was apparently not involved in that checkpoint himself.
