Oklahoma man charged with drunk driving, child endangerment

The effects of an alcohol problem can be frightening. Individuals may put themselves and their loved ones in danger due to the control an alcohol abuse problem can have over their lives. Unfortunately, serious accidents and criminal charges can result from drunk driving, and parties may need important information to get the help they need.

One man in Oklahoma will undoubtedly be assessing his situation after recently being involved in a serious crash. Witnesses reportedly told police that the man was driving erratically through a parking lot before striking a curb. The vehicle flipped multiple times before coming to a rest on its top in a concrete ditch. Another person allegedly told police that the driver had also struck a fence and almost hit a child before the accident occurred.

In addition to the man, who was reported as 26 years old, his two small children were also in the vehicle. They were properly secured in the backseat and apparently did not suffer any injuries as a result of the incident. The man declined to take a breath or blood test after the event, but nonetheless, he was taken into custody on charges of DUI and child endangerment.

The man undoubtedly feels relief that his children were not harmed, but he likely also feels a great deal of remorse for the situation. In order to deal with the drunk driving and child endangerment charges brought against him, this Oklahoma man will certainly want to understand his defense options as best as possible. Utilizing local legal resources could ensure that he obtains reliable information.
