The Super Bowl and other big sporting events can be a great time for friends and family to gather and partake in food and drink. Of course, those that consume alcohol at these events are encouraged not to drink and drive. Taxi cabs have long been an option for those who have had too much to drink, but now car services such as Uber are touting their apparent affect on the battle against drunk driving as well.
Being accused of drunk driving is a serious matter. An individual may be afraid of such accusations, and rightly so. Drunk driving allegations can not only leave a Georgia resident facing the possibility of jail time, fines, and licenses suspension or revocation, but it can also damage his or her reputation, drastically affecting personal and professional relationships. A drunk driving charge or conviction could indirectly, or directly, cause an individual to lose his or her job, reduce the amount of time he or she spends with family, and decrease his or her ability to find work and get to educational institutions.
When an individual is pulled over, they could face a traffic violation. In some cases, a police office may find reason to search a vehicle, which could lead to additional charges that could be criminal.
Two Georgia teens face serious charges connected to an alleged drug deal gone bad. The 15 and 16 year old boys are being charged as adults in the New Year's Eve death of a local 18 year old. The two are being held without bond in separate youth detention centers.
