Alleged drunk driver's license suspended after arrest

In New York City and elsewhere, driving is a privilege. Just like parents take privileges away from their children when they misbehave, the benefit of being permitted to drive can be suspended or revoked. A motorist may have a suspended license for a number of reasons, including repeated or aggravated traffic violations.

Recently, a man in upstate New York had his driver's license suspended at an arraignment for numerous charges after being questioned on suspicion of drunk driving. Police reportedly approached the man at a home where he stopped after narrowly missing several accidents. It was not reported if the home where the arrest occurred was the driver's residence. According to reports, the driver is facing a litany of charges, including a felony DWI charge and one count of resisting arrest. 

The man was reportedly stopped by law enforcement officers on suspicion he was under the influence of alcohol. The situation escalated when the man became agitated and violent. In addition to purportedly damaging equipment, the man also allegedly also struck the officers. Bail has been set, but the man is currently being held in the county jail. It remains unknown to the public whether or not he will choose to dispute the charges or to have the license suspension overturned.

Losing the right to drive can be a major inconvenience, and it can affect a person's livelihood. If you have a suspended driver's license, it may be of benefit to consult with experienced legal counsel. An attorney can help ensure you fully understand your options, as well as answer any questions you may have. In some situations, such as when performing their occupation requires a person to drive, legal representation may also be able to help clients obtain hardship or conditional licenses.
