Young woman facing drunk driving charge in Oklahoma

At one point or another, most people find themselves in some sort of trouble. This type of predicament may be minor for some, but others could end up facing criminal charges. If an individual is suspected of consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, there is a chance that drunk driving charges could be brought against that person. This type of legal scenario is serious but not impossible to handle.

One woman in Oklahoma is currently facing such an issue. Reports stated that the 18-year-old woman was allegedly driving in the parking lot of an apartment complex when she hit multiple vehicles, which were parked at the time. She purportedly tried to leave the scene, but she was detained by witnesses until authorities arrived.

The woman was outside of her car when police got to the scene, but an officer allegedly suspected that she was under the influence of alcohol due to slurred speech and balance issues. It was noted that the officer also allegedly smelled alcohol and marijuana inside her car. The woman was taken into custody, and she is currently facing charges for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and multiple drug possession allegations.

Accusations of drunk driving and the other charges brought against the Oklahoma woman could have lasting impacts. As a result, she will certainly want to find the best way to approach her case. Information on possible defense strategies may help her determine what legal routes may allow her to feel more comfortable handling her predicament.
