Man charged with DUI after high-speed chase in California

It is advisable to refrain from drinking and driving. However, for one reason or another many motorists fail to adhere to this wise advice. It turns out that one California man may have failed to follow this rule and also managed to allegedly break other laws at the same time. He is now facing DUI charges as well as another criminal offenses after a high speed chase with police.

The incident started early one August morning when police officers spotted a vehicle they deemed suspicious. This led to a high-speed chase, which reached speeds over 100 miles per hour. The police eventually found the vehicle parked on the side of the road. However, before police officers could make contact, the driver of the vehicle fled the scene.

This led the police on another high-speed chase, which again reached over 100 miles per hour. The suspect's vehicle was allegedly crossing over into opposite lanes and eventually left the roadway. The car crashed into a dirt embankment on the north side of the road and caught fire. The suspect was partially trapped in the burning vehicle.

After the police officers were able to extricate the suspect from the vehicle and gave medical aid, the suspect was arrested and charged with DUI and felony evading. This can result in serious punishment for the defendant if he is convicted in the court of law in California. Therefore, it is a good idea for the defendant to begin thinking about forming a strong legal defense strategy in order to answer to charges he faces.
