Drunk driving charges for California man found in car

A lengthy history of prior charges may make it more difficult for one man to defend his case. In a recent incident in California, a man was arrested for drunk driving when he was allegedly found passed out in his car. The charges follow a series of similar court cases for the man. The August 15 incident was covered in a recent news article that offered only a few details about the man and the arrest. 

On Tuesday, August 15, authorities responded to a Costa Mesa highway after receiving reports than a man was swerving across lanes of traffic. The man swerved across freeway lanes and then entered city streets. Police later found the man, who is 29 years old, asleep in his car.

He was at an intersection and blocking traffic when police arrived. They noticed the man passed out in the driver's seat of the vehicle. He was arrested on drunk driving charges. Unfortunately, this is not the first incident of DUI charges for this individual. His record shows at least four prior convictions, with two pending DUI cases. 

The man was also on probation as a result of the previous charges. It is likely that this person is facing serious consequences as a result of the compounded charges. He will likely be consulting an attorney to build a strong criminal defense in an effort to reduce or dismiss any drunk driving charges. Persons facing similar situations in California also have the right to acquire the aid of experienced criminal defense attorneys for assistance with their criminal cases.
