Summertime, the Jersey shore and DUIs

While the calendar may officially still consider it spring, once Memorial Day arrives most people consider it to be summer in New Jersey. As more and more people flock to the popular Jersey shore, it is a good time to review some of the things that may end up ruining their fun. Unfortunately this can come in the form of a criminal arrest. Whether for drunk driving or something else, there are many situations that could lead someone to be arrested.

NJ.com reported on some of the top causes for criminal arrests along the Jersey shore. Many of these may well be linked to the consumption of alcohol which is a common thing at many summertime events along the shore. Driving under the influence charges can wreck havoc with a person's life for a while. Records show that Seaside Heights experienced quite a high number of DWI arrests in 2015 and 2016 with 143 people being charged with these offenses in that time.

Breaking open container laws is another thing that may well find someone facing a police officer and a pair of handcuffs. Excessive noise and public urination have also been identified as potential issues for people that put them at risk of a criminal arrest. Some are even trying to make it illegal to swim when a lifeguard is not on duty.

Anyone who finds themselves arrested while enjoying their summer events in New Jersey might want to contact an attorney to learn how they might protect themselves and defend themselves against the charges.
