What was a special reunion between a soldier and his wife, suddenly became a DUI arrest. In Tacoma, Washington, a young solder named Adam King returned home from his time at a military base. He and his wife, Sara, went out to celebrate, only to have a little too much to drink. A night of celebration ended with a DUI arrest.
This happens all too often. I’ve read stories about DUI arrests that happen before wedding days or graduations. Whereas some incidents end up okay, there are others that become terrible tragedies. I don’t know why this story struck a chord with me. Maybe it’s something about reuniting with a loved one and how it’s supposed to be a special moment.
This led me to thinking about Thanksgiving as a lot of people will soon reunite with family and friends. Just because a reunion or a holiday is a joyous occasion does not put you outside the law. And, believe me, a lot of DUIs happen during holidays.
Even if you’re spending time with family and not going clubbing with a group of friends, it’s still a good idea to have a designated driver. You never know what the alcohol situation is like, so you should have someone in your group to rely on for a ride home.
I’ll probably be giving some more tips, soon, as well as some checkpoints. So, keep checking back!
Also, if you’re currently dealing with a DUI, be sure to hire a lawyer as soon as possible. With someone by your side as you deal with this difficult process, you’ll find yourself being very thankful in the end.
