Here’s another warning of things you should not do if you are arrested for a DUI. What’s the warning? Oh, don’t bite the cops.
19-year old Catherine Demery was arrested in Ypsilanti, Michigan. When she was driving, she apparently lost control of the car. Police pulled her over and suspected her to be under the influence. She failed a field sobriety test.
However, Demery resisted arrest and what was one of her tactics? She took a big old chomp in one of the cop’s arms. “She bit an officer,” stated Detective Sgt. Thomas Eberts.
Demery’s BAC measured above .17, which, in the state of Michigan qualifies her as being “super drunk.” In Michigan, if you are “super drunk” your license will be suspended for twice as long and you may have to spend up to 180 days in jail.
The charges Demery is facing include unlawful use of a motor vehicle, OUI (operating while intoxicated), resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, possession of marijuana, malicious destruction of property, driving with a suspended license and being a minor in possession of alcohol.
When you are pulled over by the cops, it is best to be as polite and respectful as possible. Don’t resist arrest or else you’ll face additional charges.
The consequences for a DUI include a license suspension, expensive fines and even potential jail time. This is why you should fight your charges if you’ve been arrested. Find an experienced DUI lawyer today.
