DUI charges brought against man driving golf cart

It may surprise some individuals to learn that even if they are not driving a car, pickup truck, SUV or similar vehicle, they can still face charges for drunk driving. Authorities may become alerted to someone driving another type of motor vehicle that is causing concern to other individuals. If so, charges for DUI could result.

It was recently reported that one man in Florida was charged with DUI while driving a golf cart. The man was driving on a roadway in a neighborhood when a person contacted authorities after allegedly seeing the man apparently falling asleep while waiting at a red light. Officers reportedly approached the man and tried to question him. He allegedly could not answer simple questions and became defensive toward the officers.

Two breath tests were conducted, and those results purportedly indicated that the man's blood alcohol level was over the legal limit at .285 and .292. The man was given a DUI citation, but he reportedly would not sign it, which resulted in him facing another charge. As a result, he was taken into custody on charges of DUI and resisting an officer.

Even under unusual circumstances, DUI charges are still serious allegations. The man accused in this Florida incident will certainly want to make sure that he understands his case and legal options. He may find it useful to explore multiple criminal defense strategies before choosing a particular path to utilize as his case moves forward. He may also want to ensure that he has any questions answered by reliable legal professionals.
