Another Broncos DUI Arrest

Comments

Who knew that DUI arrests could be contagious?

While the Denver Broncos are currently dealing with the DUI arrests of two executives, it has come to light that the offensive lineman, Quentin Saulsberry, has also been arrested for a DUI.

On May 19 of this year, Saulsberry was arrested after police received a report that a car was weaving through lanes. Saulsberry was operating the car and when police pulled him over, they performed a field sobriety test. Saulsberry admitted to having one beer at a friend’s house.

Saulsberry also submitted to a blood test, but the blood test results were redacted. Luckily, Saulsberry didn’t have to go to jail because he was released to a sober adult.

This news comes just days after two managers for the Broncos were arrested for drunk driving.

Tom Heckert, the director of pro personnel, was arrested for a DUI in June. Matt Russell, the director of player personnel and the likely successor to John Elway, was arrested over the weekend following July 4.

You don’t need to play for the Denver Broncos to have your DUI arrest be embarrassing. For most people, going through the DUI process can be the most difficult time of your life. However, there is a lawyer who will be by your side every step of the way. To find a DUI lawyer, click this link.

Hall of Famer Arrested for DUI in a Cornfield

Comments

Carlton Fisk, an MLB Hall of Famer, was arrested for a DUI in New Lenox, Illinois yesterday. The consequences for a DUI conviction in the Chicago area can include loss of driver’s license and potential jail time.

Early this morning, New Lenox police were notified of a truck that drove into the middle of a cornfield. When they arrived, they found Fisk to be passed out at the wheel. He refused a BAC test and his truck ended up getting impounded. Carlton Fisk was taken to the hospital for a checkup and has since been released.

Refusing to take a BAC test can be a risky move because you can get your license automatically suspended without any opportunity of applying for a restricted license or an ignition interlock device.

Above all, an automatic license suspension and other consequences depend on the nature of your case, where you were arrested, and if you have a criminal history.

However, no matter what the circumstances of your DUI arrest, every case deserves an experienced DUI defense attorney. If you need to find an attorney, let 1 800 DUI Laws put you in touch with local defense lawyers who are waiting to hear from you!

Sports Stars Face Consequences After DUI Arrests

Comments

Though Atlanta Falcon’s running back Michael Turner will likely play on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, he may likely suffer serious consequences for the DUI arrest he received early Tuesday morning. After all, the consequences for a DUI are rather harsh as a Georgia drunk driving arrest can result in expensive fines and even jail.

Additionally, the NFL has been issuing penalties for players who get arrested for a DUI. For example, Clark Haggans of the 49ers has been suspended for 3 games following his 2011 DUI arrest.  Chances are we will see Turner face similar consequences.

In the world of baseball, Mark Grace, the broadcaster for the Arizona Diamondbacks, will have to face even tougher penalties for his August DUI arrest because of a failure to install an ignition interlock device from a previous DUI arrest as well as driving with an expired license plate.
