Officer charged with drunk driving with 0.08 percent BAC

Minnesota residents who hear stories about drunk drivers can easily feel nervous if they themselves are ever stopped and eventually arrested for impaired driving. The stereotype that is created in people's minds about who gets DUIs is very negative. The truth is that many very responsible people can find themselves facing such a charge if they drive after drinking.

Such is the situation facing one law enforcement officer today after his arrest for a fourth degree charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. The man is from Fargo where he works as an officer at a local high school there. He was in the Hawley, Minnesota, area over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Reports indicate that some complaint was received regarding the man or his vehicle which prompted local officers to pull the man over.

After stopping the driver, he was eventually arrested when tests showed his blood alcohol content to be right at the legal limit of 0.08 percent. It is not known how much it cost for him to get out of jail but he did get out after posting bail.

When a member of law enforcement can get stopped and arrested for drunk driving with a BAC right at the legal limit, any driver in Minnesota should be concerned. Clearly, it is easier that many people realize to be in this situation. Anyone who is arrested and charged with a DUI may find it helpful to talk with an attorney about how to defend against the charges.
