Mt. Pleasant public figure facing DUI charges

Everyone is human and, therefore, everyone makes mistakes. That includes those that are in leaderships positions whether those positions are local or national. Unfortunately, a common mistake made by many people is getting behind the wheel and driving after consuming too much alcohol. A Mt. Pleasant councilman is facing DUI charges after making that very mistake.

According to Mt. Pleasant police, there was a car accident involving two cars that occurred shortly after 9:30 p.m. The vehicle driven by a Mt. Pleasant councilman allegedly rear-ended the vehicle immediately in front of him while at a stoplight. Police that responded to the scene said that they could smell alcohol coming from the man. Upon inquiring, police claim that the man told them he'd had a few drinks.

The officers then administered field sobriety testing and the councilman reportedly failed numerous tests. He also refused to take a Breathalyzer test when taken to the police station.

The potential consequences in situations involving a DUI can be very serious. The individual who was caught driving under the influence will not only be charged with a crime but they may also face monetary fines or license suspension. In this man's case, since he is a public figure in the Mt. Pleasant area, the consequences may go a step further to a damaged reputation.

Although the severity of these consequences may make the situation seem hopeless, it is important for residents of South Carolina that are facing DUI charges to know that there are many defense options for those facing DUIs.
