Some people believe that the wealthy and famous in society are subject to a different, more lenient standard of justice than other Americans. A recent case involving NFL player Aldon Smith is an example.
Smith was recently sentenced for drunk driving as well as allegedly unlawful possession of firearms that he purchased in Arizona.
Getting pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence is a significant allegation. Police officers will likely question an individual and often times at least attempt to perform a breath test.
If it is determined that a driver’s blood-alcohol content is above the legal limit, which in the state of Arizona is .08, there are often serious consequences to which one must face.
Nearly 400 Arizona residents may be dealing with some serious legal issues this week after police saturation patrols and checkpoints netted 389 DUI arrests during the Fourth of July weekend. Last week, we reported on what these efforts would mean for drivers and this year, like others in the past, these efforts resulted in hundreds of arrests.
The Fourth of July holiday in Arizona and around the country is an opportunity to commemorate our nation’s independence, to watch fireworks, to enjoy a barbeque and to spend time with family and friends. It is also an occasion for heightened police activity on the roads, looking to catch those who have perhaps been too enthusiastic in their celebratory spirit.
