Oklahoma man taken into custody for DWI after fast turn

A 35-year-old man was taken into custody on Aug. 16 after officers observed him making a turn onto the wrong lane northbound on Mission Street in Sapulpa. Police say that an officer observed the man's Jeep Grand Cherokee make the turn at high speed around 10:58 p.m. The officer initiated a traffic stop on Cleveland Street.

When police made contact with the man, he told the officer that he did not have a driver's license or insurance. The officer said that he could smell the odor of alcohol on the man's breath and asked him to take a breath test. However, the man reportedly refused to take the test.

Based on the officer's observations of the man both before and after he got out of his vehicle, he was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI and taken to Creek County Justice Center. He was charged with driving under the influence, driving under suspension, no insurance and turning a vehicle while in an unsafe position. Reports indicate that the man is being held on bond totaling $2,750.

Drivers who are facing drunk driving charges may be sentenced to time in jail, a fine or a license revocation. In addition, it may be possible to be sentenced to community service. Depending on the facts in the case, a defendant could get probation in lieu of jail time. A DWI defense attorney may be able to help a driver dispute a drunk driving charge in court. This may be done by refuting the results of a blood or breath test as well as arguing that the test was not done properly.
