Man faces DUI charges in California after hiding from police

Everybody will usually have to take responsibility for their actions. However, sometimes people act erratically and attempt to escape responsibility. Many times this can result in various consequences, especially when it comes to breaking the law. One man made the poor decision to attempt to avoid responsibility after a vehicle accident and was eventually arrested on a DUI charge in California.

The man had allegedly crashed into a couple power poles in a recent accident in early September. Apparently, the man tried to hide from authorities; however, the police found the man hiding behind trees close to the location of his vehicle. The authorities responded to the accident at approximately 7:44 p.m. The 62-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

As a precaution, the man was transported to a medical facility prior to being taken to a local county jail. The man was then released from jail the next morning. There were no injuries reported, according to information released to the public by authorities. Also, the police have not said anything about any witnesses who may have seen the accident occur.

The man will now have to answer the DUI charges brought against him in California. He will also have to explain why he had been allegedly hiding from police after the incident. On the other hand, despite the evidence against him, the man may still have several legal defense strategy options available. However, the man will need to be well-prepared to present a legal argument in court in front of a judge.
