Lake Forest, IL Considering Towing Fee for DUI Offenders

Comments

Lake Forest, Illinois officials are considering charging DUI offenders with a $500 fee to tow their car after a DUI arrest.

There are already other fees that occur when you are arrested for a DUI. There are required fines you have to pay to the state. Plus, there’s bail and fees you must pay for ignition interlocks and alcohol education classes. Currently, DUI offenders in Lake Forest pay between $150 and $175 to have their vehicle towed.

Lake Forest Police Chief Jim Held believes that charging a $500 towing fee can help raise $20,000 to $25,000 a year that can help pay for DUI processing and overtime pay for police officers. Additionally, the monies could be used for training and equipment in the police department’s anti-DUI campaign.

Surrounding communities already have a towing fee, including Highland Park, Bannockburn and Buffalo Grove.

The City Council is expected to go over this ordinance on Monday, April 21 2014. A preliminary approval has already been given.

A DUI is an expensive mistake. In addition to all the fees you have to pay, chances are your auto insurance rates will increase, as well. A DUI could nearly bankrupt you! This is why it is necessary to fight your charges. A DUI lawyer can go over your case and help you get your charges reduced or dropped altogether.

DUI Offender Spits on Police Officers

Comments

collier

It’s always best to be cooperative with police officers if you’re getting arrested for a DUI. Getting belligerent or acting angry can cost you. Oftentimes, additional charges come up if you act aggressive toward the police officer. This exact situation happened to a woman in New Haven, Connecticut.

Shannon Collier, 25, was driving drunk early Saturday morning, April 12, 204. She apparently got into a car accident on the 400 block of 465 Norton Parkway.

Officers arrived to the scene to find Collier standing in the middle of the street and yelling. When they approached Collier, officers could sense something was up. A strong odor of alcohol was on Collier’s breath. Collier ended up admitting to having Hennessy and pineapple juice at a bar on Dixwell Ave in Hamden.

When police asked Collier to take a field sobriety test, Collier didn’t cooperate. Instead, she yelled out racially-charged insults at the officers. The officers arrested Collier and when she was in the police department’s DUI testing room, she spit on one of the police officers.

Because of Collier’s behavior, in addition to DUI charges, she is also being charged with interfering with police and assaulting a police officer.

Be on your best behavior when dealing with the police. While in many states you don’t have to take the field sobriety test or answer any questions, it’s important to be as polite as possible with the police.

Emma’s Law Passes

Comments

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has signed a new law that will require DUI offenders to install an ignition interlock if their BAC at the time of their arrest was .15 percent or above.

This law is known as Emma’s Law and the bill was approved on Monday, April 15, 2014. A signing ceremony has been planned.

With Emma’s Law, any DUI offender with a BAC of .15 percent or above will be required to install an ignition interlock device for 6 months.

An ignition interlock is a device that you plug into your vehicle. It’s no bigger than the size of a cellphone. In order to start your car, you must blow into the device. If the interlock detects alcohol on your breath, your car will not start.

If you are arrested for a second DUI, under Emma’s Law, you will be required to install an ignition interlock for two years.

Ignition interlocks have proven effective in carrying out DUI sentences. Furthermore, interlocks give DUI offenders the freedom to keep driving, even on a suspended license. To learn more about the benefits of an ignition interlock, visit SmartStartofCalifornia.com.

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, an ignition interlock may be an option for you. However, you have to speak with an attorney to see if it’s a possibility. Not only will an attorney help you qualify for an ignition interlock, a DUI lawyer will fight your charges to get them reduced or dropped altogether. Find a DUI lawyer today!

A man is currently facing criminal charges for putting his 17-year old nephew in the driver’s seat as he was approaching a DUI checkpoint in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

On Friday, April 11, 2014, NM police were conducting a DUI checkpoint near Bridge and Isleta.

SC House Passes Emma’s Law

Comments

A bill aimed at requiring DUI offenders to install ignition interlock devices has passed in the South Carolina House.

The House voted 112-0 for Emma’s Law, a bill named after a 6-year-old girl who died in a drunken driving accident.

According to this potential law, if your blood-alcohol content at the time of your first DUI arrest was .015 or above, you will be required to install an ignition interlock for six months. If you refuse a breath test at the time of your arrest, you may automatically be required to install an ignition interlock. If you are arrested for a DUI again, you would need to have an interlock for two years. Finally, if you are arrested for a fourth DUI, an ignition interlock would need to be installed for life.

An ignition interlock is a device that you plug into your vehicle. In order to start your car, you must blow into the device. If the interlock detects alcohol on your breath, your car will not start. Installation and upkeep of the interlock can cost you around $130 a month. To learn more about ignition interlocks, we recommend visiting SmartStartofCalifornia.com.

Priest Arrested on DUI and Weapons Charges

Comments

We always say that a DUI can happen to anyone. Even a priest!

Yes, an Alaska priest appeared in court last Friday where he is facing DUI charges, along with misdemeanor drugs and weapons offenses.

Fairbanks priest Father Sean P. Thomson was arrested on March 24, 2014. Police witnessed him speeding and weaving his pickup truck on the highway. Therefore, they pulled him over.

When the cops approached the vehicle, they noticed the priest seemed disoriented. When they asked for his registration, Father Thomson handed the officer a receipt instead.

The trooper went on to ask if the priest had any weapons on him. The priest admitted that he had a .357 in the backseat, but he failed to report that he had a 9 mm pistol in his back pocket. The priest also failed the inform police that he had a baggie of marijuana in his shirt.

Police went on to give the priest a breathalyzer test where his BAC measured at .247. That’s three times the legal limit! The priest was arrested and taken to the police station. While at the station, officers wanted to give the priest another breath test, but the priest refused. According the the police report, the priest “said he was drunk and did not feel the test was necessary.” At least he was honest.

Father Thomson was later released on a $5,000 bail. He has pleaded not guilty. However, the Catholic Diocese of Fairbanks placed Thomson on administrative leave.

No matter what your job or walk of life, a DUI can be extremely embarrassing. Even though you made a mistake, it’s important to act smart about it.

IL Judge Arrested for DUI

Who judges the judge?

An Illinois circuit court judge is facing DUI charges after he crashed into a parked car in Ottawa.

Judge Joseph Hettel crashed his vehicle into a parked car yesterday, March 31, 2014 around 10:45 pm on the 1800 block of La Salle Street. According to the police report, Hettel was also talking on his cell phone. Luckily, there were no injuries.

Hettel was charged with DUI, speeding and using a handheld communication device while at the wheel.

La Salle County state’s attorney office said they are aware of the charges, but they are doubtful they will be charging Hettel. The current state attorney, Brian Towne, served as Hettel’s assistant when Hettel was state’s attorney.

“To avoid even the appearance of impropriety, I anticipate we’ll have to seek a special prosecutor,” stated attorney Brian Towne.

Hettel will likely face penalties from the Judicial Inquiry Board in addition to criminal court.

This case goes to show that a DUI can happen to anyone. A DUI can be a shameful and embarrassing experience, but it’s important to act smart about it. Hire an experienced DUI lawyer to help you.

Drunk Driver Passes Out with Burrito in Hand

Comments

daniel hernandez

A drunk driver from Deltona, Florida is facing DUI charges after he passed out at a traffic light holding a half-eaten Taco Bell burrito.

A witness saw Daniel Hernandez, 36, weaving through traffic lanes and run into the curb. Eventually, Hernandez stopped at a traffic light and dosed off at the wheel. The witness called 911.

Cops as well as the paramedics arrived and found Hernandez still asleep at the wheel with his foot on the brake. They couldn’t rouse Hernandez after 10 minutes of banging on the car, so they decided to break a window, “fearing Hernandez would take his foot off the brake and potentially cause an accident at the intersection.”

One of the police officers turned off Hernandez’s car. Finally, after two minutes, paramedics and police were able to wake Hernandez. Hernandez had clear signs of intoxication and he admitted to having a drink an hour and half before the traffic stop.

Hernandez agreed to take two breathalyzer tests. His BAC read .173 and .177. Hernandez was arrested for a misdemeanor DUI and taken to Volusia County Jail on a $500 bail.

If convicted, Hernandez could spend a maximum of 9 months in jail. His vehicle could get impounded for 10 days and he may have to pay fines that could range up to $2,000. Additionally, Hernandez may have to perform community service, install an ignition interlock device, and attend alcohol education classes.

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, you should know that the penalties all across the country are serious. Most of them result in expensive fines and possible jail time.
