California man charged with driving under the influence

Driving under the influence can be a serious charge for individuals to face. There are several circumstances that can surround these charges and at times an individual faces more than one charge. A recent car accident in California has left a man facing charges of driving under the influence.

The incident occurred between the man in question and several other vehicles. The 35-year-old man crashed into a car which caused a chain reaction accident. Witnesses that observed the accident claimed the man threw an object out of the window, which officials believed to contain methamphetamine. This has not been confirmed, however, and toxicology reports will need to be conducted in order to determine if that is in fact what was in the container.

Unfortunately for this driver, he did not have a valid driver's license and was also on probation for the same violation. A field sobriety test was performed at the scene and he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Depending on the toxicology report, the man could be facing additional charges. For this reason, it could be important for the man to understand his rights according to the applicable state laws.

Any California driver facing charges of driving under the influence could benefit from making sure all facts are brought to the table. Having an understanding of the law can also prove beneficial as a person moves forward with their defense. Depending on prior charges and current facts, a person could potentially be eligible for a plea deal or lighter sentence. By having all of the needed knowledge to move forward, a person can hopefully face their charges and move on with their life.
