Police respond to drunk driver covered in dog poop

At about 11 p.m. on April 7, police received calls about a car running red lights and coming close to hitting several vehicles in Washington state. Minutes later, another person called 911 to report that a vehicle had crashed through their gate. The driver of the vehicle had fled on foot, but police soon made contact with the man who was covered in feces.

Authorities later discovered that the property owners bred dogs on their farm and kept all the feces in a container. That is where the man had tried to hide after fleeing his vehicle. As the man was covered in fecal matter, police had firefighters check the man's condition instead of conducting a field sobriety test. However, he did acknowledge that he had been drinking tequila prior to driving. Therefore, the 25-year-old was taken to jail on a suspicion of drunken driving.

If a person is charged with drunk driving, it can have a significant impact on his or her personal and professional life. Spending time in jail or prison may make it harder to care for a child or to remain employed. Court costs, legal fees and fines imposed related to a DUI conviction could cause short and long-term financial issues as well. Therefore, it may be a good idea to consult with an attorney about ways to counter the allegations.

In some cases, it may be possible to ask for a plea deal that could help a driver avoid some or all penalties related to a drunk driving conviction. An attorney could also argue that a driver was experiencing a medical emergency that mimicked the symptoms of alcohol impairment.
