New York takes drunk driving seriously. This was recently highlighted in a case that involves a Ferrari sports car and a driving while intoxicated (DWI) conviction.
Super Bowl weekend is known as a time to get together with friends, cheer on a team and let go of reality for a couple of hours. Unfortunately for some, reality may hit when you see red and blue flashing lights in your rearview mirror as you head home after the game.
New York takes driving while under the influence (DWI) seriously. State officials showcased this stance recently when they stepped up efforts to enforce DWI laws over the holidays.
This time of year is known to wreak havoc on monthly budgets. Bills start rolling in for presents, holiday parties and greeting cards. One expense that you should avoid: the cost connected to a DWI conviction.
This November, an additional four states decriminalized the recreational use of marijuana. Numerous more states allow marijuana to be prescribed medicinally, including New York. As states increasingly treat marijuana similarly to alcohol, the question follows: what does it mean to be too high to drive?
Getting a driving while intoxicated (DWI) conviction is a serious matter. These convictions can come with steep monetary fines, mandatory ignition interlock installation on all of the accused's vehicles and prison time.
It may begin with a celebration of a friend's birthday, with a promotion, or just a gathering to kick off the weekend. Whatever the reason, getting pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving is a stressful way to end an evening of celebration. Although you may be tempted to brush off the encounter, don't. If a stop leads to charges, it is important to take the charges seriously.
Justin Bieber, 19 years old, was arrested for DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED (DWI), RESISTING ARREST, and DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENSE on early Thursday morning, January 23, in Miami. The Miami Beach Police pulled Beiber over for DRAG RACING in a multi-million dollar Miami residential neighborhood. He was driving a rented yellow Lamborghini, which was returned to the rental company, rather than being seized for forfeiture by the county in which the incident occurred since the vehicle was not owned by Beiber.

On Thursday, May 23, 2013, the former child star, Amanda Bynes, who is 27 years old, was arrested once again, this time for allegedly throwing a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th floor high-rise New York apartment building. The building manager, Rudy Toro, called the police when he allegedly saw Bynes smoking marijuana in the lobby of the luxury apartment building. When the police arrived and entered her apartment, it is alleged that there was smoke and the odor of marijuana. It was then that Bynes allegedly threw the marijuana bong out of the window. Oddly enough the bong was not recovered. That is a point an Experienced Criminal Lawyer should and would state to the Court hearing the case.
