Oklahoma man charged with DUI after altercation

A 52-year-old man was charged with a variety of offenses, including DUI, speeding, domestic abuse and injuring another person's property on Wednesday night, Oct. 17. The man had reportedly gotten into an altercation with his roommates after becoming intoxicated and passing out on a bed in the home that they shared.

According to the woman who lives in the house with the man and two other male roommates, the man had fallen on the floor after passing out on the bed. She proceeded to take a picture of him, which angered him, causing him to attack her. She stated that he knocked over her television and broke her DVD player by throwing it at her. She says that when she tried to run from him, he grabbed her by her hair and pulled her back. The two other male roommates reportedly intervened to keep him from attacking her and began yelling at him. He allegedly got into a white truck and began driving under the influence of alcohol.

Police officers were dispatched to look for him. They say he was speeding, going approximately 60 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour speed zone. Police officers stated that he had trouble standing up and that his speech was slurred. He submitted to field sobriety tests, which he failed, and he was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI.

When a defendant faces this many charges, he or she may decide to show cooperation by enrolling in substance abuse treatment and anger management treatment. A defense attorney may use this to ask the court for leniency when dealing with the individual.
