Oklahoma man accused of drunk driving after officers receive tip

Making the mistake of getting behind the wheel while intoxicated is something that numerous people go through. Often, this type of incident results in parties facing charges for drunk driving. The penalties for such an allegation can range in severity, depending on various factors relating to a specific arrest, but in any case, an individual has the right to defend against charges.

One man in Oklahoma was recently taken into custody for allegedly driving under the influence. Reports stated that authorities were contacted after a person apparently suspected that a drunk driver was leaving a restaurant. Authorities noticed the man's car, and after he purportedly pulled into the middle of an intersection while the light was red, an officer attempted to pull the man over. However, the man reportedly kept traveling but was eventually stopped.

The officer purportedly noticed that the man had red eyes and that he was slurring his speech. The man declined to take a breath test, and he was subsequently taken into custody. The man also allegedly acted aggressively toward officers during the arrest. As a result of the situation, the man is currently facing charges for driving under the influence and disregarding a traffic control device.

This situation could act as a considerable setback for this Oklahoma man, and if a conviction takes place, he could face serious consequences. In hopes of avoiding such an outcome, he will undoubtedly want to determine what type of defensive courses of action may help him address the drunk driving allegations. Information on his options may prove useful in this endeavor.
