Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs can be dangerous, and the penalties for a conviction are serious. If an accident occurs in the process, the consequences an accused individual may face only increase in severity. A 44-year-old woman has been arrested and accused of drunk driving after allegedly hitting a police cruiser that was leading a funeral procession in West Virginia.
When an individual is wanted in connection with an alleged crime, evading arrest could increase any suspicion of guilt by the authorities. However, in some cases, a person might be unaware that a warrant for his or her arrest even exists. A woman in West Virginia has recently been arrested and accused of drug charges after allegedly evading authorities for up to six months.
