When individuals are impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is likely that they will not make the wisest decisions. Unfortunately, some of these decisions could result in police becoming involved in a situation and an individual facing charges for driving under the influence. These charges could have significant repercussions, including driver's license suspension. If an individual would like to work toward avoiding such an outcome, focusing on preparing a criminal defense may be a beneficial route.
One man in Missouri may be hoping to follow such a route after being taken into custody. It was reported that the man got the attention of police deputies and allegedly stated that someone was trying to harm him. Authorities reportedly believed that the man was intoxicated due to his allegedly slurring his speech and having trouble standing.
