UFC star receives DWI charge

Posted on May 24th, 2012 No Comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship’s light heavyweight champion, Jon “Bones” Jones has been charged with driving while intoxicated after crashing his Bentley into a pole in upstate New York last Saturday.

The UFC star was picked up from jail by his family and issued a ticket to appear in court at a later date.

The 24-year-old former college wrestler went pro in 2008 and has since racked up 16 wins in the league while dropping only one fight. He has been described as a good, responsible person who had never been in trouble with the law before this arrest.

If you have been charged with DWI, there is a chance you may have your license suspended. Contact the DWI lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., at 713-523-0404.

Deputy constable charged with DWI after being found asleep at the wheel

Posted on May 10th, 2012 No Comments

A Houston deputy constable was found asleep at the wheel of his parked car on the side of the road in the 12400 block of Stonefield Manor. The off-duty officer’s son was in the car with him.

After being awoken by officers, he was taken to a nearby hospital, where blood tests showed that he was intoxicated.

Even though he was parked on the side of the road, he was charged with DWI because his motor was running. His fellow officers say that this kind of behavior is uncharacteristic for him, and his record has been described as “impeccable” by Precinct 3 Constable Ken Jones.

In an anonymous survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2010, one in 50 adults admitted to drunk driving at least once in the previous month.

The survey also revealed that 81 percent of drivers who self-reported driving drunk were men. 1 in 3 who self-reported drunk driving in the survey were men between the ages of 21- and 34-years-old.

The CDC also found, based on the survey, that people who live in the Midwest and people who do not always wear their seat belt are more likely to drink and drive. Overall, officials estimate that people in the U.S. drove drunk 112 million times in 2010.

Judge convicts man of DWI, insists he wasn’t driving

Posted on April 14th, 2011 No Comments

A Houston man was recently convicted of driving while intoxicated despite repeated claims that he was not at the wheel of the car.  The man’s daughter testified to the court that she was driving on the evening that he was arrested.

Police pulled over the white Chevy Astro van being driven by the daughter after receiving reports that the vehicle had been swerving in the northbound lanes of U.S. 59, just south of Sugarland.  The officer noticed that the man, who was sitting in the passenger seat, had red, glassy eyes, and asked to see his driver’s license.

Despite insisting that he had not been driving that evening, the officer arrested him and charged him with drunk driving.  In court, he continued to try to tell officers that his daughter had been driving all evening, however the judge at his trial still convicted him of a Class B misdemeanor DWI.

If you have been charged with driving while intoxicated, having experienced legal representation at your side will be key in the outcome of your case.  Contact the Houston DWI attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. at 713-523-0404 to set up an appointment to meet with us today.
