Criminal defense: Over 480 arrested in drunk driving operation

The holiday season often brings many occasions for people to attend parties and celebrations where alcoholic beverages are served. During this time, law enforcement officials routinely focus on curtailing the number of people who get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking. A recent effort by Michigan police resulted in over 480 motorists focusing on criminal defense concerns following their arrests for alleged drunk driving.

The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning reported that the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign was held from Nov. 22 through Dec. 10, 2017. During this effort, 482 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence. This number included 71 drivers that were charged with an apparent blood alcohol content of .17 or higher.

During the campaign, officers also cited 663 motorists who were driving with a suspended license. Also, 2,281 speeding citations were issued, according to reports. Additional citations were issued for violation of parole, an outstanding bench warrant and family abuse warrants as part of the statewide effort.

Whether arrested for drunk driving as part of an organized campaign or in an individual traffic stop, the potential impact on one's life is the same. If convicted of driving under the influence, a person may be fined, face restrictions on driving or even be required to spend time in jail. It would be in someone's best interest to seek the guidance of a Michigan criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. A trusted lawyer will help clients throughout every step of the legal process. Having a strong defense team can help minimize the negative effects on a person's life.
