2 arrested in California after DUI, try to outsmart authorities

Many people underestimate the danger of getting behind the wheel after having had a few drinks. In fact, there are stories almost weekly in California about folks who have been charged with causing violent car accidents because they were impaired due to having been under the influence of something. The truth is, even after a subtle amount of alcohol, a person's ability to comprehend their surroundings and make responsible decisions is marred exponentially. 

In a recent story out of Petaluma, California, two suspects were arrested after a drunk driving accident. The bewildering story began after reports of a hit-and-run accident started coming in. Authorities began looking for the suspect vehicle and tracked it down a short while later. When an attempt to pull the occupants over was executed, authorities recognized that the car's original driver was no longer behind the wheel. She and a passenger had swapped seats, presumably because they recognized that her impaired state made her visibly to blame for the accident. 

What is ironic in this story, is that the now-driver was also intoxicated and authorities said he was clearly so by his behavior at the scene. Both the man and woman were arrested for charges of driving while under the influence. They were booked into jail. It is unknown whether or not they will receive additional charges. 

If people have been the victims of a drunk driving accident, they may wish to enlist the help of a trusted attorney. This may enable them to receive knowledgeable guidance and support as they create a case that powerfully demonstrates why they should receive compensation.
