A Massachusetts, a School Committee member has decided not to seek re-election. The decision seems to have been a year in the making, since many of his colleagues have repeatedly urged the 46-year old man to step down following his arrest last year for DWI.

The incident began on New Year’s Day 2010 following a call to 911 where the caller reported the driver of a pickup truck that was driving erratically, sources explained to a New York Criminal Lawyer.

An off-duty police sergeant was in his personal vehicle after completing his shift and heard the call over the police radio of what was happening. He spotted the pickup, radioed the location to the police dispatcher, and proceeded to follow it. Soon after he would observe the driver of the pickup, drive recklessly and almost hit two joggers. Soon afterward, a police cruiser arrived and stopped the truck. As part of the police’s investigation, they learned that the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.25 percent, which is more than three times the Massachusetts legal limit of 0.08 percent.

A California driver involved in a deadly accident in 2009 may not have been driving drunk at the time of the accident, but authorities revealed to a New York City Criminal Lawyer that the man was under the influence of at least three other drugs.

The 26 year old Latino driver had blood levels showing marijuana, morphine, and methamphetamines at the time of the crash. The country district attorney’s office chief investigator disclosed in a recent report provided to a New York City Criminal Lawyer that the Latino driver was too seriously impaired to drive a motor vehicle. His intoxication may have led to the accident.

The California Highway Patrol led the investigation as noted by the New York City Criminal Lawyer. A witness close to the intoxicated driver said he had been drinking a malt liquor while driving enroute to Sacramento from Tulare. The perpetrator’s blood alcohol measured .02 ninety minutes following the fatal crash. That computes to about .05 at the time of the crash. Both blood alcohol levels are below the .08 legal limit in California by which a driver is considered legally drunk.

Illinois Police District Sixteen is a small, sleepy district. Not much happens in a given week and rarely is any news made. The people there like it that way. They can relax and let life live itself while they enjoy the cast off fruits of joy. Simple? Perhaps. But definitely happy. Which is why it was big news when not one but two people were arrested in the span of a week for driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs, says a New York Criminal Defense Lawyer.

One of the selfish criminals grabbed the bottle and started drinking until he could drink no more. He drank to hide the pain, he drank to hide the world, but he drank and then drank. Then, he got behind the wheel of a car. He decided that he would risk not just his life, but the life of everyone else in District Sixteen as he sped down the road, going top speed, all the while loaded out of his mind. One car after another was passed until he finally passed the wrong car: a cop car.

A second idiot was high on, reports a NY Criminal Lawyer. The police would not release the details of the drug use, but it was significant enough to be obvious to a police officer and dangerous enough to affect his driving. Like the first offender, this criminal was also in their early twenties. Perhaps that is just the age to be dumb, high, drunk, and driving a car.
