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.

Houston mayor halts police phlebotomy training

Posted on June 17th, 2010 No Comments

Houston mayor Annise Parker stopped the Houston police’s training to become certified phlebotomists.

Officers started training to draw blood in February after federal grant money was approved for the project in October .  The idea was that instead of taking suspects to nurses or hospitals to draw blood, police officers could do it in the police department’s downtown intoxilizer room where drunk drivers are booked.

Officers began their training drawing blood from state prison inmates.  Inmates that approved being part of their training were lined up for police officers to practice finding the veins to draw blood.  This testing was kept private with the understanding that the public most likely wouldn’t like the idea of using prison inmates as guinea pigs.  Officials believe that the prison testing did not have anything to do with Parker’s decision to halt the training.

A new proposal is now being discussed that would permit Houston firefighters and paramedics to perform blood draws.
