MI Drunk Driving - Drunken "Doughnuts" Enough for DUI Arrest of Grand Blanc Man

Practicing law in a metropolitan area, it is common for a Detroit personal injury lawyer to represent a number of clients who have sustained severe personal injury or died because they were involved in a drunk driving accident. Law enforcement officials nationwide, particularly the Michigan State Police, have taken a firm stance against drunk driving because of the dangers it presents to all people on the roads.

This crack down on drunk driving even applies when in parking lots, as seen by the recent arrest in Grand Blanc Township. Law enforcement officials were called down to PD’s Pub to attend to an intoxicated man who refused to leave the bar. En route to the bar, police officers received another call from the pub informing them that the Flint man, 48, hopped into his truck and proceeded to do “doughnuts” in the parking lot. Upon finally arriving on the scene, police immediately could tell that the unidentified man in the truck was significantly intoxicated. When confronted, the man drunkenly told officers that because he was on private property, he could not be arrested. However, after several sobriety tests were performed, and his blood alcohol content level registered to be 0.11 percent–0.03 higher than the legal limit in the State of Michigan, the Flint man was arrested for driving while intoxicated and taken to the county jail.

After investigating the Flint man’s criminal record, it was discovered that his license was suspended five times, as well as two prior convictions for driving while intoxicated. In addition, he informed police officers that he was also using Vicodin and morphine for back pain. At this time, it is unknown whether he was under the influence of either of these drugs at the time of the drunk driving incident.

Driving while intoxicated significantly increased the risk of an accident while on the roads, as well as the chances of severe personal injury or death occurring. Because these injuries can have life-changing consequences, it is essential to contact a Detroit personal injury attorney for the best legal representation and legal advice immediately. Doing so can help ensure a successful outcome to your personal injury claim.
