Despite this, a man in Virginia was recently charged with drunk driving after his pickup truck allegedly struck a police cruiser.
There are a variety of different circumstances that drivers face while driving. In fact, some of these may prompt police officers to suspect criminal behavior even though they were perfectly innocuous.

Unfortunately, a man in Virginia was recently arrested for drunk driving after a deputy reportedly observed him engaging in such behavior.
Most people realize that when they utilize Virginia roadways, they could potentially be involved in an accident.

The sudden death of a young person in Virginia in a preventable car accident is an unspeakable tragedy. When it happens at the hands of an alleged drunk driver the desire may be for the maximum penalty to be levied against the suspected drunk driver. However, due process applies regardless of the severity of the case for a person facing drunk driving charges.
