Former Indiana Unveristy athlete facing drunk driving charges

An incident occurred in Indiana on a recent Wednesday morning that involved a former university football player. Drunk driving charges have been apparently been filed against the athlete. It was just after 5:30 a.m. when the young man was booked into a county jail.

The situation took place when a police officer pulled the man's vehicle over in a traffic stop. The law enforcement agent claims that the man was driving without his headlights on. It was reported that the motorist failed field sobriety tests as well as a breath test at the scene.

The acting officer apparently then took the former football player to a police department to conduct a chemical test, but authorities were reportedly not able to obtain a sufficient breath sample for the test. Therefore, the accused was transported to a local hospital where he underwent a blood test. He was then booked at the jail while test results were pending.

In similar situations, a person accused of drunk driving in the state of Indiana can request a meeting with a criminal defense lawyer while blood test results are pending. It is often helpful to consult with an attorney in order to discuss all options that might be available toward building a strong defense. The outcomes of such cases may vary greatly depending on individual circumstances and the manner in which a defense is presented to the court. This is why is it always advisable for a defendant to act alongside the guidance of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
