Florida Man Arrested for DUI in Wendy's Parking Lot

Last week, a man was arrested for DUI and child neglect when a Wendy's manager suspected that he was drunk. The 26-year-old man had approached the drive-thru and was ordering food when the manager thought that the driver was intoxicated, and he noticed a 4-year-old inside the vehicle. Reportedly, the manager told the driver he could park while his food was getting prepared, and then the manager called the police. The driver was said to have taken and failed multiple field sobriety tests. He is also credited with saying that he had downed five beers at a Super Bowl party. He said that he did not think he was intoxicated, and that is why he had his son with him. Officers arrested the man and he was booked in Pinellas County jail.

Even for a first-time DUI charge, someone could face up to six months in jail and up to $250 in fines. Worse still, a conviction would mean having to live with that criminal record. If a minor was present at the time of the alleged offense, then the sentences could escalate to 9 months in prison and $1,000 in fines. There could also be license suspension for a year, probation for a year, 50 hours of community service, and more. If a second DUI charge within 5 years is leveled at someone when they have a minor in their vehicle, this factor would also escalate the potential sentence someone could serve.

If you or someone you know faces such grave charges, then you need an outstanding defense team, one that will scrutinize your case to in order craft a strong defense and that will tirelessly fight for your rights.
