A 21-year-old man has been arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol after allegedly attempting to evade a traffic stop in West Virginia. Attempting to evade authorities is never advisable, and such a decision may only increase suspicions of the presence of wrongdoing. Individuals who stand accused of drunk driving under similar circumstances may wish to prepare for what comes next by focusing on their defense, but the process can be intimidating.
According to law enforcement agents, the incident took place after officers claimed to have encountered a vehicle traveling in the wrong lane of traffic. After allegedly witnessing the vehicle move in and out of the lane, police say they attempted to initiate a traffic stop. However, upon activating lights and sirens, they claim the driver began to lead them on a short pursuit.
