Traffic stop leads to serious DUI charges

When South Carolina residents choose to have a few drinks, the choices that follow can have life-altering consequences. One of the most dangerous acts that anyone can undertake is attempting to drive a vehicle after drinking. Alcohol often leads to poor judgment, and the inability to accurately measure levels of risk. This leads many otherwise rational and responsible individuals to make the decision to get behind the wheel of a car or truck. The result is often DUI charges.

This is the case for one South Carolina man who was recently pulled over. The officer claims that the 31-year-old man swerved briefly into oncoming traffic, and nearly struck two vehicles. When he was pulled over and speaking with the officer, the patrolman claims to have smelled alcohol on the driver's breath.

He subsequently underwent a breath analysis, which showed his blood alcohol level at .367. In addition, when asked how much alcohol he had consumed prior to getting behind the wheel, he allegedly told the officer "too much." As a result, he was arrested and charged with aggravated DUI, driving with a suspended license and driving left of center.

As this case moves forward, this South Carolina man will have to make a number of decisions in regard to the DUI charges faced. In doing so, he and his legal team will evaluate the evidence held by the prosecution, as well as the man's prior driving record. Each case is unique, and the legal path chosen is a reflection of the facts and circumstances of each individual arrest.
