Underage drunk driver refuses to take breath test

Residents of South Carolina are able to enjoy an alcoholic beverage without being charged of a crime as long as they enjoy it in a way that obeys the state's alcohol consumption laws. However, consuming alcohol in an illegal way can result in criminal charges and, in some cases, a conviction, which means a criminal record. Some charges involving alcohol consumption are more serious than others and therefore have more serious or immediate consequences.

Drunk driving charges result from damaged parking garage property

Previous postings in this blog have discussed the unfortunate situations that result when South Carolina drivers get behind the wheel of their car after consuming too much alcohol. These actions often lead to drunk driving charges. Sometimes, drunk driving charges occur only after a driver is pulled over by authorities for the commission of another traffic offense or after getting in a car accident. This is exactly what recently happened to a South Carolina driver.

As previous posts on this blog have discussed, when people are charged with drunk driving it can be very harmful to their professional reputation. This is true in some careers more than others.

Although the case is still under investigation, it is likely that these accusations could stick with him for an extended period of time even if he does not end up being convicted of the crime.

However, if the circumstances surrounding the accident are severe enough, it could result in felony DUI charges.
