Kattan facing driving under the influence charges in Californa

Driving under the influence can be an issue not just for other drivers on the road, but for the driver who has been accused as well. Clearly, driving under the influence is dangerous, but at times a person can also be falsely accused. It is important for all details to be made available when a person is facing charges. One recent California incident has left a celebrity fighting such charges.

Chris Kattan, who is probably best known for his stint on Saturday Night Live, was involved in a crash that ended with him facing charges for suspicion of driving under the influence. Kattan crashed into a truck early Monday morning. The truck belonged to the Department of Transportation and it was said the area was a marked work zone.

According to local sources, a call had been made prior to the accident that a vehicle such as Kattan's had been traveling at a slow speed and swerving. Reports that Kattan also allegedly confessed to using prescription drugs had surfaced across the internet by the time the article was published. The specific procedures used to arrest Kattan were not mentioned, therefore it is unknown if he submitted a blood sample or agreed to a breathalyzer. It was also not mentioned if he performed a field sobriety test.

In a California case such as this one where many factors are unknown, it can be important to make sure one's rights are protected. If found guilty, Kattan may be eligible for a plea bargain or probation depending on any previous charges or convictions. Not everyone charged with driving under the influence qualifies for a lighter sentence, but having an understanding of the applicable laws can help a person determine if this is an option worth pursuing.
