For some, DUI arrests run in the family. The case seems true for the Taverniers, as siblings were arrested for a DUI at the same time near Colorado State University yesterday.
Tyler Nathaniel Tavernier was pulled over for driving with a defective headlamp. Not far behind, his sister, Sarah Elizabeth Tavernier, pulled her car over near the police stop.
Police suspected Tyler Tavernier to be under the influence and performed a field sobriety test on him. He failed. Police approached Sarah Tavernier, consensually according to 9 News, and suspected her to be under the influence. Sarah Tavernier also failed the field sobriety test.
The siblings were arrested and later released on bail by Tuesday afternoon.
The charges the pair will likely face if convicted include heavy fines, a driver’s license suspension and mandatory jail time or probation. If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, it is in your best interest to fight your charges.
