A woman blamed her boyfriend for her recent DUI arrest and the judge simply didn’t buy her excuse. She was sentenced to 60 days in the DuPage County jail last week after being found guilty of driving under the influence. According to reports, Alexandra Davit, 26, was driving erratically through Naperville, Illinois. Police witnessed her
Clean getaways are rarely heard of in law circles. Most criminals don’t get away without leaving some trace of evidence behind. This was the case on Christmas Day for a teenager accused of drinking and driving. According to reports, the pursuit started on Old Atlanta Road and continued over several other roads until the driver
One of the first concerns that people have after being arrested for driving under the influence is losing their driving privileges.

Law enforcement officers were out in full force on New Year’s Eve, all with the same goal: Prevent unsafe motorists from injuring or, worse, ending the lives of other drivers on the road.

Anyone who has watched “The Bachelor” knows that they can expect some exciting back stories from the contestants. They also know that the first night of the show will be one of the best. The show, now in its 20th season, is undoubtedly one of the most popular on television. But just where do those
One of the biggest holidays of the year occurred last week and police were out in full force. Law enforcement had warned party goers that police would be easy to spot, and they certainly were. According to the Georgia Department of Public Safety, New Year’s ran from 6 p.m. Thursday through twelve in the morning
When a judge orders a person not to drink alcohol, they better pay attention. Carla Elaine Bartholomew found this out when a judge had her arrested for drinking in her own home. After three convictions for drunk driving, Bartholomew was instructed to not consume any alcohol. It was, in fact, a condition of her probation.
It stands to reason that most people think that when a person is pulled over and charged with driving under the influence that they learn from their mistake.

Drivers in Georgia are being told to “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” According to law enforcement officials, the holiday season, including New Years, is a dangerous time to be on the roads.
