Man facing DWI charge in Minnesota after police receive tip

Facing charges for drinking and driving could cause complications for individuals accused of such actions. However, individuals charged with DWI have legal options that they may wish to consider as their cases move through the criminal justice system. Because each case is different, each person may wish to determine which avenues may be best suited for his or her particular predicament.

One man in Minnesota may be hoping to find the best route for his case after recently being taken into custody. It was reported that the man had allegedly been driving 63 mph in a 45 mph zone. Additionally, reports stated that a person apparently called emergency services to report a driver weaving on the road. As a result, the man was stopped by police. 

The man purportedly underwent sobriety tests, which he apparently did not perform satisfactorily. It was also reported that the man's blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit, and he supposedly had several open alcohol containers inside the vehicle. As a result of this incident and a previous DWI violation, the man is facing a gross misdemeanor charge for DWI and could also lose the vehicle involved in this reported incident. 

In order to prepare for his legal case, the man may wish to find out more information on the DWI allegations he faces and his options for defending against those allegations. If he wishes to follow such a path, creating and presenting a meaningful defense could allow him to work toward the outcomes he most desires. Information on Minnesota criminal proceedings relating to his case may allow him to gain valuable knowledge.
