Many people may easily lose their tempers in certain situations. However, some of those instances may have more serious effects than others. For instance, if a person is driving under the influence of alcohol and gets caught up in a road rage incident, the scenario could quickly turn complicated. Additionally, someone could end up facing criminal charges.
It was recently reported that such an event recently took place in Utah. Apparently, a driver called police due to purported concerns about another driver. While attempting to get the second driver’s tag number, the first driver flashed his lights, which apparently annoyed the man driving the other car. As a result, the second driver allegedly yelled at the other person before following that driver. The man also reportedly pointed a gun at a person in the first car.
Officers attempted to make a traffic stop involving the man, and he apparently did not stop immediately. However, a stop did take place, and officers purportedly found a gun and an open container of alcohol in the vehicle. The driver did not want to participate in field sobriety tests, and blood test results were not available at the time of the report. Nonetheless, the man was charged with DUI, reckless driving and other serious allegations.
Being accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and the other charges brought against this man can prove difficult to address. As a result, he may find himself hoping to gain assistance and information on his possible legal options. Luckily, the man has the right to create and present a criminal defense in Utah criminal court if he wishes to do so.
