Florida firefighter faces DUI charge after traffic stop

No one is immune to making bad decisions now and then. If a choice results in a person facing an arrest for DUI, it may seem like that decision has ruined his or her life. However, that may not be the case. People in this type of predicament may have several ways in which they can handle it.

One man in Florida will likely be reviewing his options after recently being taken into custody on charges for drunk driving. Reports stated that the man was traveling over the speed limit and was not keeping his vehicle in his lane. As a result, he almost struck another vehicle. Officers conducted a traffic stop, and they allegedly noticed that the man had an odor of alcohol on his breath and that his eyes looked bloodshot and glassy.

The officers had the man perform field sobriety tests, which they claim he did not perform well. The man also reportedly provided a breath sample that allegedly indicated that his blood alcohol content level was .227. As a result, he was taken into custody on a charge of driving under the influence. It was noted that the man works as a firefighter and was off-duty at the time of the incident. However, the fire department stated that it would be conducting an investigation.

Due to the DUI charges brought against this man, his career and much of his future may be on the line. Fortunately, he can work to defend against the charge in the manner he finds most fitting. By exploring his criminal defense options and learning more about how Florida criminal cases are handled, he may feel more comfortable moving forward.
