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.
