Residents of Lincoln may indulge in some holiday parties every now and
then. With Halloween just gone and Thanksgiving coming up ahead, there
are plenty of opportunities to have a beer and a good laugh. However,
enjoying the night safely is an important thing. Otherwise you might find
drunk driving charges, which can cost a pretty penny.
This may be a lesson that one Lincoln County man will have to learn the
hard way. It was reported that his breath registered at twice over the
legal limit when he was tested at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
He was brought in for further testing after police gave him field sobriety
tests which he reportedly failed.
The attention of the police was initially garnered because the man drove
into a house after sliding across their yard. Police speculate that the
driver missed a corner due to being in an inebriated state and the slide
was the result of that. While the Brady Fire and Rescue aided two trapped
people inside of the home after the incident had occurred, no injuries
were reported. The penalties that this man might face are currently unknown.
Jail time, permanent record marks and large fines can all be the result
of causing damage while under the influence. Because of these consequences,
DWI damage related charges can be difficult for anyone to handle. If you
are in a situation where you are facing similar or related charges, you
might benefit from the advice of an attorney.
