Leianne Francine Lazarus of Marion County, FL was arrested for a DUI recently. Police pulled her over and she took a field sobriety test. Lazarus also took a breathalyzer test where her BAC measured at .447! That’s nearly five times the legal limit.

However, the antics don’t stop here. After the cops arrested her, Lazarus had the audacity to ask the cops for a beer. We guess she wasn’t ready to stop partying yet.

Watch the video here:

Lazarus will face some serious charges if she’s convicted of a DUI. She may have to face a license suspension and pay some pretty expensive fines. Lazarus may also be required to spend some time in jail and she may be required to take alcohol education classes.

 

A DUI arrest is no joke. The consequences of a DUI conviction can be severe. With a DUI conviction on your record you could have trouble getting approved for a loan if you ever wanted to make a big purchase in the future.

A woman from Garden City, Idaho wanted so badly to not be arrested for a DUI that she threw herself into a nearby canal to avoid the fuzz. Condola May Kelly and her husband, Kyle Kelly, were arrested on Sunday, September 29 after crashing their car and attempting to avoid arrest.

The Kellys were driving their Cadillac on Sunday and crashed into a Mini Cooper. They must’ve known the police were on their way. The Kellys tried to drive away, but their car was too damaged from the crash. They then tried pushing their car, but that didn’t work, either.

The water in the canal was shallow, so the police were able to spot her. Kelly still refused to surrender.

“She wouldn’t come out of the canal, so an officer had to wade in and pull her out,” stated Officer Leon Dennis of the Garden City Police Department.

Kyle Kelly was spotted and arrested shortly after.

If you spot the police and you’ve been drinking and driving, don’t try to run! You’ll only face more charges. The best thing to do is stay as calm as possible and cooperate with the police. Once you are able, contact a DUI lawyer as soon as you can. You may able to avoid jail and keep driving after a DUI arrest.

DUI Suspect Barks at Police Dog

Comments

police dog

James Paul Andrews of Cranberry Township, PA, was arrested with DUI charges. However, he also has to face additional charges because apparently during his DUI arrest, he barked and growled at a police dog.

The police dog, named Chaos, was assisting police at a DUI checkpoint that was set up in Western PA. Around 2:40 am on September 15, the unit stopped Andrews to see if he was under the influence.

Andrews began taunting poor Chaos by “barking, hissing and growling” at the police pup. Apparently, Andrews was irritated that he was pulled over. Needless to say, Andrews was also found to be under the influence.

DU charges were filed against Andrews today, September 30, 2013. He will also have to face additional charges for taunting the dog. Apparently, this could be seen as a felony charge with a penalty of up to 7 years in prison.

We know that it can be very irritating to get stopped at a DUI checkpoint. It can also be very scary and we know your emotions are high. We always recommend you be as polite and courteous to the police officer as possible. Getting angry can only result in irritating the police officer which can result you facing even more charges.

When we say be polite and courteous to a police officer, it should go without saying that you should also be polite and courteous to any drug-sniffing canines who are assisting officers. Not only is it mean to animals, but, technically, you’re also obstructing justice! It may seem funny at the time, but it can only result in even more charges in addition to your DUI charges.

Woman Arrested for DUI Within Hours at Same Location

Comments

Recently in Black Diamond, Washington, a woman was arrested twice in one day for a DUI. While we have seen this happen before (unfortunately), this woman’s case is pretty interesting. Both of her arrests took place at the same location: a liquor store.

The first arrest occurred in the parking lot of the liquor store where she accidentally crashed into a Black Diamond business. The woman totaled her car and damaged the building.

The woman was arrested and taken to jail. However, the jail was too full, so police officers took her home.

That sure didn’t keep the woman from going back to the liquor store. The woman then took her husbands truck and drove back to the store where she was arrested again.

This woman is due to be arraigned within the next couple of days.

While some people may be rolling their eyes at this story, it certainly shows that many people arrested for a DUI struggle with alcohol addiction. This is why a lot of states let DUI offenders opt to seek treatment for their substance abuse, as opposed to serving time behind bars. Not only does the offender fulfill their sentencing obligations, they also seek treatment for their addiction issues.

The best way to ensure you don’t go to jail after a DUI arrest is to hire an experienced DUI attorney. A lawyer can help you avoid going to jail after a DUI and can be your advocate during what might be one of the most stressful ordeals you’ll ever have to experience.

Drunk Driver Looking to Avoid a DUI Ends Up Getting a DUI

Comments

Yikes. Two drunk people attempting to avoid DUI charges got exactly what they didn’t want.

On Monday, September 9, 2013, Charles Armstrong helped Beth Schwartzmiller find her way home in Butte County, MT. Schwartzmiller decided to follow Armstrong in her car.

Apparently, Schwartzmiller was too intoxicated to find her way home on her own. However, she still managed to get behind the wheel. Armstrong thought that by leading the way to Schwartzmiller’s home, he would be helping her avoid a DUI arrest.

Talk about karma.

En route to Schwartzmiller’s home, the two motorists crashed into each other. Of course, police arrived and found both drivers to be under the influence. They were arrested for drunk driving.

The consequences these two may face include expensive fines, jail time, a license suspension and the possible installation of an ignition interlock device.

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, no matter how silly your logic was that night, it is a smart idea to contact a DUI lawyer. A lawyer can assist you with the complicated judicial process and help you avoid unnecessary punishment. Find a lawyer today!

A Very Strange DUI Arrest in Florida

Comments

jesus

A Florida Highway patrol officer experience quite a strange DUI arrest when they apprehended Leyla Denise Aykin last Thursday.

Though Aykin’s BAC was .00 and she tested negative for marijuana, Aykin was clearly under the influence of something when she was arrested.

Police witnessed Aykin speeding, as well as sticking her scarf out the window and letting go, like in an old-timey movie. They pulled her over and when they asked Ayken to get out of the car and put her hands on the vehicle, she instead knelt down and said a prayer.

According to the police report, Aykin claimed she wanted to “taste the ocean”. In his report, the highway trooper wrote that Aykin “wanted to taste me and gaze through me.”

Aykin then started singing and chanting. When the officer asked if there was anyone he should contact, Aykin replied, “Jesus”.

Ayken claims that she had stinging nettle tea. Stinging nettle is a plant that has stingers (or trichomes) that can inject histamines when someone touches it. Stinging nettle is often used in medicines.

We’re certainly curious about the defense Aykin will use on this case! Let’s hope she hires an experienced DUI lawyer.
