07 Jan Drinking can Lead to Needing Bail
Drinking with friends is always fun. Grabbing a beer or margarita here and there seems like a great way to keep the party going. What kills a party buzz is driving while intoxicated. It’s all fun and games up until someone decides to makes the irresponsible decision to get behind a wheel.
Say you went out with friends the other night, and you thought someone else was going to be the designated driver. It turns out that it was your turn to be the DD, and now you have to drive everyone home after a few drinks. Against your better judgment you say you feel fine and decide to drive everyone home. After all, out of all of your friends, you’re the only one that can actually walk in a semi straight line.
By some miracle you’ve managed to drop all your friends off, and you didn’t wreck the car. Now your last stop will be your own house. While driving back home you get sleepy, and your driving skills are really slipping up. Luckily a cop sees you swerving and pulls you over. Even if your intentions were good and you didn’t hurt anyone, you still were over the legal limit. The officer, doing their job issues you a DUI. Now what?
