Florida woman facing DUI charge after parking lot incident

It is not unusual for individuals to make questionable decisions. Unfortunately, some of those decisions could cause damages or others to suffer harm, and as a result, a legal predicament could arise. If a person is accused of involvement in a car accident and police suspect him or her of DUI, it is likely that criminal charges will result.

One woman in Florida is currently facing such a predicament. Reports indicate that authorities were called to the parking lot of a grocery store after a woman noticed that her vehicle had been hit by another car. Another woman came out of the store and allegedly told police that she had hit the woman's car with her vehicle. Police reportedly noticed that the second woman was having balance issues, and after ensuring that she was not experiencing a medical issue, they administered sobriety tests.

The woman allegedly failed the tests, and the report also noted that she had an odor of alcohol about her. Officers apparently searched her vehicle and located an empty wine bottle and an unopened bottle of wine that she had apparently purchased while inside the grocery store. The woman was taken into custody on charges of DUI and hit and run.

While certain evidence may seem to be stacked against the Florida woman, she still has options for defending against the DUI and other allegation leveled against her. A detailed review of the arrest and other aspects of the case could help her determine whether any police misconduct occurred or other missteps that could aid her defense. Information on utilizing this type of strategy and other defense methods may prove useful to her.
