Man charged with drunk driving after collision in driveway

People often make mistakes throughout their lives. In some instances, those mistakes may have few consequences, and in other cases, the outcomes could prove detrimental. In situations that allegedly involve drunk driving, individuals could find themselves facing the possibility of serious charges, punishments and life-changing outcomes. Even allegations of DUI could have lasting effects.

One man in Oklahoma is certainly hoping to avoid such negative outcomes after recently being charged. Reports stated that the man was purportedly behind the wheel of a vehicle when he collided with another vehicle in a residential driveway. The family who lived at the residence were outside when the incident occurred, but they did not suffer injuries. The man allegedly left the driveway and began traveling along the road after the collision.

Authorities reportedly caught up with the man soon after the incident. He was taken into custody on charges of DUI, refusing to take a breath test, leaving the scene of an accident and another violation. He was reported as being 29 years old. It was unclear whether he was still in custody at the time of the report.

The man allegedly involved in this Oklahoma incident will likely need more information on his predicament. Drunk driving allegations can prove difficult to combat, and having applicable legal knowledge could help him determine his best courses of action. Creating and presenting a meaningful criminal defense could potentially help him work toward the outcomes he finds most agreeable. It is important to remember that the man is considered innocent until -- and only if -- he is convicted in a court of law.
