Following an accident -- especially one that results in a fatality -- it is necessary for police to conduct an investigation to determine what exactly happened. There are often many pieces of evidence to be examined in order to put together an accurate picture of the incident. Unfortunately, police in Texas believe that both DWI and speed were factors in a recent crash that resulted in a man's death.
If you are pulled over by law enforcement in Texas for suspected DWI, the officer will typically have a planned set of questions and tests to give you to determine if you may be intoxicated. Many times, people who are not as familiar with their rights and who may be intimidated in this situation may submit to any test the officer asks them to do. But did you know you are not required to participate in any field sobriety tests?
Anyone who has driven with small children likely knows of the distractions that they can create. However, most parents are committed to doing everything they can to meet the needs of their children and protect their safety. Despite this, a man in Texas now faces multiple charges, including drug possession, after he was stopped by police.
