Scared man flees officer, faces DUI charge in Florida

When a police officer attempts to pull over a vehicle, most drivers understandably feel a sense of panic. As a result, they may not use their best judgment in dealing with the situation, which may cause it to become worse. If an officers suspects a driver of DUI and the driver fails to stop, multiple charges could result.

These circumstances recently affected one man in Florida. Reports stated that the man was driving a pickup truck when a police officer attempted to stop his vehicle. Apparently, the man initially stopped his truck, became scared and then drove away as the officer got out of his vehicle. The man came to a stop again a short distance away. After the stop, the man then allegedly got out of his vehicle and chugged a can of beer.

The incident has resulted in the man facing several allegations. Those charges include felony DUI due to previous convictions, failure to submit to a breath test, fleeing a police officer and driving on a suspended license. He was reported as being 48 years old, and no bond had been given at the time of the report.

Felony DUI charges are serious matters to contend with as well as the other allegations leveled against this Florida man. He will undoubtedly want to determine his best options for defending against the charges in order to work toward the best possible outcomes for his case. Because it can be difficult to know how to effectively address criminal charges, the man may wish to gain reliable information from local legal resources.
