How zero tolerance laws affect underage drunk drivers

Some Michigan drivers who are under age 21 may not realize that they could face serious legal consequences for even having one drink and getting behind the wheel. Because drinking and even possessing alcohol is illegal for those younger than 21, they can get a DUI with a blood alcohol content of more than .02 percent.

Police take singer into custody after DUI

Michigan residents who are fans of musician Mac Miller may have heard that he was charged with a hit-and-run and drunk driving. On May 17, he reportedly struck a power pole with his Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon before fleeing the scene of the accident. Police say that his blood alcohol content was .15 percent, and the legal limit in California is .08.

Former football staffer offered plea in drunk driving case

One former football staffer at the University of Michigan has been offered a plea agreement after the man was charged with drunk driving and resisting police. The man was taken into custody on March 5 in downtown Ann Arbor when he allegedly had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.17, significantly above the legal limit of 0.08. The man, who is the former director of football operations and director of performance for the Michigan football team, was accused of an array of related charges.

Questioning breathalyzer test accuracy

When an alleged drunk motorist in Michigan is pulled over, authorities generally use a breathalyzer test to establish the driver's blood alcohol concentration (BAC). There is a presumption that a driver is drunk if their BAC is .08 percent or greater. While blood tests are more precise than breath tests, they are invasive and take a significant amount of time to produce results.

3 factors that could impact your BAC level

You may believe that your college years should be ones that allow you to have new experiences, meet new people and gain a useful education. While this belief is not necessarily wrong, you may wish to remember that these years do not allow you to get away with anything you want. Just because you may have a new-found freedom away from your parents for the first time, you could end up facing a more serious disciplinarian if confronted by law enforcement officers.

Woman in Michigan faces OWI/DUI charges

A woman in Galesburg has been charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, following an alleged altercation the morning of Dec. 26. Local police arrested the Michigan woman, who has been charged with OWI/DUI as a result of the investigation.

Were you falsely accused of DUI?

Though you may always want to do your best when behind the wheel of a vehicle, you may find yourself driving when you are tired, distracted or maybe even after a couple of drinks. You certainly would not consider getting behind the wheel if you felt that your abilities were impaired, but some actions you take while driving could cause other individuals or police officers to become concerned about your state of being.
