Anyone can be arrested if they have been drinking and driving. No matter who you are or where you happen to be, drunken driving is considered a crime. Even though someone has been arrested for drunken driving, there is the requirement that they plead guilty to the charge brought against them. Even if you are arrested in the charge, you may not have to enter a plea of guilty. Depending on how law enforcement officers handle an arrest, sometimes mistakes are made. It’s the mistakes in a DUI case that can mean all the difference in the outcome of a DUI case.
