Man charged with drunk driving and underage drinking in Indiana

A vehicle driven in Indiana on a recent Tuesday night appears to have left deep ruts in the road. These ruts are what led police to a 20-year-old man they were seeking. Their search began with a reported crash and ended with drunk driving charges being filed.

Police say that they were able to track the young man by following gouges that his vehicle left in several roads where he traveled. When they responded to the call about a recent crash, they discovered an abandoned car. Not far down the street, they also found a pickup trucked that appeared to have been damaged.

Law enforcement officers say that when they first approached the man, he denied that he had been drinking alcohol. Reportedly, a breath test later proved that his blood alcohol content was well above the current legal limit. The man was charged several counts of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated,  fleeing the scene of an accident and consumption of alcohol while of minor age.

Those accused in similar drunk driving accidents in Indiana will likely benefit by discussing the issue with a legal professional who has experience in criminal law. Every person has the right to hire an attorney and to request information on options that might be available with regard to impending court proceedings. An experienced attorney would be able to offer a personalized assessment of an individual case and offer suggestions, advice and ongoing support to navigate the criminal justice system with the goal of achieving the most favorable result.
