Man arrested for DWI after almost running off the road

Given the risk drunk driving presents to the public, it is no surprise that Little Rock law enforcement takes great care in seeking drivers who might be under the influence and takes steps to stop and arrest them. In some instances, the driver was stopped after making a reckless maneuver. In others, there was an accident. In still others, the driver might have committed a violation entirely separate from any DWI-related action and the officer found that the driver was committing a DWI. No matter the situation, they must still have a strong legal defense to avoid the harshest penalties.

Man charged with DWI and child endangerment

In Little Rock and across Arkansas, law enforcement is out in force looking for drivers who might be operating their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Because the act of DWI is thought to be so dangerous, people must be aware of the steps taken by officers to make traffic stops, investigate allegations of DWI, and make arrests. For those who are charged with DWI, the level of penalties they might face will hinge on the circumstances under which they were arrested. Regardless, having legal assistance is one of the most important factors to get a positive resolution.

Can I be charged with drug crimes for fraudulent practices?

In Arkansas, law enforcement and legislators are serious about preventing fraud with controlled substances. Although, street drugs are perceived to be a significant problem in society, prescription medications are increasingly being mentioned as causing damage to people who abuse them. Many prototypical "street" drugs can be acquired legally via prescription. Those who either seek to acquire these drugs fraudulently and those who are providing them fraudulently can face charges if they are caught and arrested. Understanding the law with fraudulent practices with controlled substances is integral to lodging a strong defense against these drug crimes.
