Therefore, if someone is considered a repeat DWI offender, he or she could be at risk of felony charges.
A man in Missouri could be facing serious allegations after he reportedly fled from police and was allegedly involved in two accidents. It was reported that law enforcement had apparently attempted to stop the man after he did not use a proper signal and did not have a license plate on the front of his vehicle. The driver reportedly stopped initially but then continued to travel at an excessive speed.
