Drunk Driving on Thursday, January 2, 2014.
Even if Lincoln residents may indulge in the occasional party, keeping
road safety in mind is important. Having a
drunk driving incident on your record can be hugely damaging in many ways, some temporary
and some irreversible.
Some of the consequences for DUI charges may soon be faced by one Natick
woman. After being discovered inside a flipped car at 7:55pm by police,
the woman was rescued from the scene uninjured. She had reportedly rolled
her car after having “too many drinks”, which she told officers
after failing a series of field sobriety tests. However, it was also reported
that she was unaware of the fact that she was responsible for the car rolling.
Though she initially agreed to the sobriety tests that she then failed,
she reportedly did not take a Breathalyzer test despite it being reported
that officers could smell alcohol on her breath. Slurring was also reported.
In addition to that, police reports read that she asked if the police
had found the car that “hit her”, asking how else she would
have managed to flip onto her hood if another car wasn’t involved.
Nearby, two parked cars were found to be damaged. This is reportedly believed
to be the reason for her car flip.
The potential convictions and potential penalties of this case are currently
unknown, but they could be high due to the damage to other vehicles. This
can include fees, spikes in insurance rates, and possibly jail time. Anyone
facing similar circumstances may benefit by seeing an attorney with experience
in DUI related incidents.
