Accident Report Leads to DUI Arrest

Ken HawkinsNo two DUI cases are alike. In fact, some are quite decidedly unique. This makes them often difficult to defend, at least without the right attorney. Just as every DUI case is not the same, neither is every DUI defense lawyer. The right one can change a case that looks hopeless into a settlement everyone can live with, or even dismissed charges or a not guilty verdict.

According to Lousiana State Police, a 31-year-old man drove to a troop headquarters to file an accident report — while drunk.

The alleged drunk driver was put into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail on $1,000 bond.

A state trooper says the suspect called state police to say he had been involved in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 10 in Baton Rouge. He was told to come to headquarters to fill out an official report. But when he arrived, a trooper smelled alcohol. A field sobriety test and a breath test indicated the driver may have been intoxicated.

The suspect was booked with driving on a suspended license and a first-offence DUI.
