Police take 20 into custody after weekend drunk driving sting

Law enforcement in Missouri reportedly took 20 people into custody during the weekend of June 14 and 15. The police were out in force during the drunk driving sting, and during the course of the weekend, city and state police joined forces to set up several checkpoints in Independence and Gladstone.

Although the checkpoints were specifically set up to catch drunk drivers, police reportedly apprehended several people for other offenses, including driving without a license, moving violations and outstanding arrest warrants. Additionally, police patrolled a large area in an attempt to apprehend those suspected of driving while intoxicated. Police stopped over 676 cars during the weekend.

There is no indication as to whether or not those arrested in the sting will face charges of drunk driving. If they do, their charges may vary depending upon a number of factors, including whether they are first offenses or if drugs or other illegal substances were involved when the stops took place.

Being taken into custody and facing potential charges regarding drunk driving can be very stressful for those involved. The charges may vary according to the severity of the occurrence; for example, those with prior DWI convictions may face more serious penalties, which may include possible jail time. Fortunately, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to help Missouri residents who are facing charges of driving while intoxicated. Depending upon the circumstances, he or she may be able to get the charges lessened or even dismissed. To this end, the attorney may evaluate details of one's case such as whether or not law enforcement officers adhered to official guidelines for DWI evaluations and sobriety tests or whether a valid blood or Breathalyzer sample was obtained.
