DUI A Most Serious And Common Traffic Violation
No One Gets Away Easily With DUI Violations
Each and every one adult has the right to drink alcoholic beverages once in a while. However, if you drink, never ever drive. Or else, you will be faced with DUI (Driving Under Influence) charges. Authorities will suspect that you are driving under the influence of alcohol if you would i.e. exceed the allotted speed limit. And if you are proven to be drunk driving based on some tests, then you will surely go to jail for drunk driving.
Whether you are an ordinary person, a teacher or a government employee, you are not safe from this charge. Here are some “unlikely” people who have been caught with such violations.
There are lots of police officers who have also been arrested for drunk driving. Timothy Rusk, a lieutenant with the Denver Police Department, was arrested for DUI and prohibited use of a firearm on January 4, 2012. According to police, Rusk was found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .176%, which is more than double the state’s legal limit of .08%. Court documents state that Rusk was released after posting a cash bond of $1,000. Rusk has had a few run-ins with law enforcement before, having been arrested for DUI back in 2004 as well as another charge for felony trespassing in 1999.

If you are ever arrested and subsequently convicted of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) violation, you are in for a lengthy process with law enforcement, the judicial system, the Department of Motor Vehicles, Alcohol Treatment Programs, and your own budget. In the case of a DUI a law enforcement officer can put you through a field sobriety test and can arrest you on the spot. In some states you can go immediately to jail for up to 24 hours, and upon conviction, be possibly sentenced for even more jail time.
