Three DUI charges result from initial arrest in New Jersey

Many complications can arise when a driver is charged with driving while intoxicated. Whether in New Jersey or New York, the laws for drunk driving are strict and clear with severe penalties if a conviction is received. The need for a proper defense is important for anyone facing this prospect and it is important for all drivers to remember that they are owed this by law as well.

One aspect that is important to anyone arrested with a DWI or DUI is the need for help. A woman who was recently arrested for a DUI in New Jersey had troubles finding the right help as her call to a friend resulted in two other people being arrested as well when the first two people called to take her home arrived at the police station allegedly drunk themselves. The 34-year old woman was arrested by New Jersey police early one morning after her car was reportedly observed swerving on the road and she failed sobriety tests.

When allowed, she called her 23-year old friend to be picked up at the police station. However, when the second woman arrived, police believed she appeared drunk as well and she also failed tests given at the police station. In addition to a DUI, this woman was found to have drugs in her purse and received a charge for that as well. The man that was called next also failed sobriety tests and was charged with a DUI.

There can be many ways that a defense can be worked in such a case as there are many nuances that affect a DUI charge. Anyone who has been arrested for drunk driving could benefit from talking to an attorney to understand their options for help.
