Councilman arrested for dangerous DUI

Drunk driving is a dangerous act, yet people do it every day. There are ways to get home without risking your life, but if you make the decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, it could mean penalties that otherwise would have been avoided.

While it's a good idea to get a taxi or to call for a ride, it's not always something people think about. That could lead to crashes, but a DUI is more likely.

A DUI could affect your job, which was the case for a former councilman of Bethel Park. The man was arrested following a stop by police. They mentioned that he was driving erratically, and he then failed a field sobriety test. He was booked into jail on charges of possessing drug paraphernalia and drugs, which added up with previous charges for trying to sell Adderall in a local restaurant. He was also charged for that crime, which allegedly took place around a month before this one.

The man was previously accused of fraud, particularly involving his construction company. He went to a hearing for that prior to the drug charges, and a judge warned him that he would face time in jail if he was arrested again. He has been arrested twice since that warning.

In cases like this, people need to remember that no one is guilty until the evidence stacks up and is proven. A good defense can help you prevent yourself from facing penalties you don't deserve. It's always wise to make sure the right protocols were followed and that the evidence is still present if there will be a trial or hearing.
