Arizona man charged with DUI after hitting two pedestrians

It is a well-known fact that drunk driving accidents can have a significant impact on the lives of both the victims and those who have been charged with a crime.

For the accused, drunk driving charges come with serious penalties, including jail, fines, license suspension, probation, community service or any combination of those. Simply put, everyone in such a situation loses.

Retired NFL player sentenced for Arizona DUI

While many residents of Arizona might believe that celebrities and professional athletes can avoid the consequences of DUI charges due to their status, a former NFL player proved recently that this is not always true.

He was then charged with a DUI and he pleaded guilty in March.
