Officials detain Oklahoma man on DUI charges after crash

On Aug. 3, police detained a 33-year-old man on suspicion of drunk driving after he allegedly struck multiple vehicles at an Oklahoma City drive-in movie theater. Reports indicated that one individual was injured in the incident which reportedly transpired on Western Avenue at around 1:15 a.m.

According to police, the 33-year-old man had asked his girlfriend to discard an alcoholic beverage container so that it would not be found by officers. Moreover, police claim that the man stated the brake in his car was not functioning.

Police allegedly noticed that the man's speech was slurred and that his breath smelled of alcohol. Reportedly, the man struggled to maintain his balance and did poorly on a field sobriety test administered by officers.

Police booked the 33-year-old man into Oklahoma County Jail on charges of DUI with an injury accident. The man also had an outstanding warrant for leaving the scene of an accident stemming from an incident in Canadian County, authorities reported.

People accused of drunk driving must form a strong DUI defense strategy against the charges if they are to obviate the severe penalties that accompany a conviction in the state of Oklahoma. In the event that there is substantial evidence to convict an accused driver, a defense lawyer may have the opportunity to negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecution. Through this type of agreement, an accused driver may endure reduced consequences in exchange for a guilty plea. As part of the plea agreement, a defendant may be required to install an ignition interlock device in their vehicle and attend substance abuse counseling.
