Professional athlete arrested for drunk driving

Drivers in New Jersey who have been arrested and accused of driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs can face an uncertain path at first. Frequently taken away in handcuffs to a police station, they may ultimately be taken to a jail. Here, fingerprints and mug shots are taken. This is just the beginning of the process. How the process plays out can vary from person to person.

Despite stereotypes, virtually anyone can be charged with drunk driving offenses. Take, for example, the recent case involving a renowned female soccer player and star. According to reports, the woman had spent the evening at the home of a friend in Portland, Oregon. While on her way home, she is said to have failed to stop at a traffic light. For this reason, officers stopped her vehicle.

Since being released from jail, the woman has appeared with a lawyer in court to enter a not guilty plea to the charges against her. It is not known what her blood alcohol level was and no details have been given about any potential previous convictions. She is due to appear in court later in the month of April. In the meantime, her request to be allowed to travel outside of Oregon for work purposes has been approved.

Protecting the right to work and maintain life while the DUI defense process plays out can be important for drivers. Talking with an attorney may help people understand how to ensure this can happen.
