Driver charged with DUI after rollover car crash

A 33-year-old Washington man was charged with suspicion of felony DUI after losing control of his vehicle at about 1:20 a.m. on Nov. 14 in Snohomish County. According to authorities, the car was going east on Highway 2 when it went off the road, hit a rock wall and then flipped over. The driver's 10-year-old daughter as well as the man's brother were passengers in the vehicle.

Both had minor injuries and were taken by a passing motorist to Cascade Medical Center. When officers made contact with the man, they noticed that he smelled like alcohol and showed signs of intoxication. He was taken into custody after failing to perform field sobriety tests. The man was initially held at Chelan County Regional Justice Center, and authorities said that he had four prior DUIs on his record.

Those who are charged with operating a motor vehicle while impaired may wish to consult with an attorney. Doing so may make it possible to eliminate some or all of the legal penalties that an individual may face. For instance, a conviction may result in jail time, a fine or a loss of a driver's license. It may also result in personal or professional consequences such as losing a job or not being able to enroll in school.

However, an attorney may be able to help dispute an impaired driving charge by casting doubt on the evidence presented against a driver. It may be possible to argue that an individual was not intoxicated or under the influence of any substance when he or she was pulled over or taken into custody. The results of a blood or breath test may also be disputed in an effort to get a plea deal or to have charges dropped entirely.
