Vermont Man Gets DUI for Driving on Front Lawn of Alcoholics Anonymous Founder

Posted by Aaron J. Wolff | Jan 01, 2013 | 0 Comments

There is no such thing as a good drunk driving arrest.

But there may be such a thing as an especially bad DUI arrest.

In Vermont, a 55-year-old man got busted for drunk driving. It wasn't tough for cops to spot the suspected drunk driver, as he was apparently driving on the front lawn of the home where Bill Wilson was born. Wilson is the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.

When asked what he was doing, police say that the driver responded that he thought that he was driving in a parking lot, reports the AP. The driver now faces a variety of charges related to the property damage and driving drunk.

If you are ever charged with a drunk driving offense, authorities may also rely upon evidence like your erratic driving and statements you made to support the charges. But while you may have sped or missed a stop sign, the authorities may not have evidence quite like someone driving on the front lawn of the birthplace of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Instead, the authorities may introduce evidence like breath or blood alcohol tests, field sobriety tests and physical observations such as slurred speech and bloodshot or watery eyes.

In the face of this seemingly overwhelming evidence, you may think you have a lost cause. In fact, with so many police and lawyers involved, the whole process of defending your DUI may seem impossible. That's why to make it a fair fight, you will need experienced and tested legal representation to defend your rights. Just because you may have been arrested and blown over the legal limit, does not mean you are automatically guilty of DUI.

When you are charged with a DUI, your livelihood, reputation, and even freedom are all on the line. The award-winning DUI attorneys at Wolff Criminal Defense are aware of this and will provide their years of experience in the Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, and King County areas to protect you.
