Christopher Hoyle, a law enforcement officer with the Anderson Police Department, has been caught on the wrong side of the law when he was arrested in Hamilton County just past midnight over the weekend as he made his way back after a concert in which Rapper Wiz Khalifa and punk rock band Fall Out Boy performed.
As reported by wishtv.com, Hoyle did not exercise his right to remain silent. He confessed to arresting officers that he had consumed a couple of beers as he watched the performance at Klipsch Music Center.
The arrest report claims Hoyle was pulled over as his car was travelling in a wayward manner and failed to remain in a straight line (a telltale sign of drunken driving). Arresting officers supposedly noticed that Hoyle’s eyes were bloodshot, his speech was slurred, and he reeked of alcohol. Hoyle, or anyone else in a situation like this, it looks like you are desperately in the need of a standout DUI attorney who can be found on this site right here. In fact, look up the name Guy Haskell and you should be good to go.
Prosecutors have slapped the cop with two class C misdemeanors. Hoyle’s blood alcohol content registered at 0.11%, which according to Indiana DUI attorneys is above legal limit, which is at 0.08%.
The Anderson Police Department released a statement confirming they were aware of the arrest and that they had temporarily demoted Hoyle to perform administrative duties only, at least until the incident was further investigated and a permanent action could be taken.
20 year old from Muster charged with DUI in crash in which three persons were injured
A 20 year old female driver identified as Karina Del Ray has been arrested and charged with DUI causing bodily injury after causing a crash on Sunday morning, according to an nwitimes.com report.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Calumet Avenue and Fisher Street. It was a collision between a white Chevrolet and a blue Honda Sports Utility Vehicle. Three persons inclusive of Del Ray were injured in the accident. One person was critically injured and is currently being treated at the trauma unit in the Northlake campus of The Methodist Hospital, while the other two (including Del Ray) have been transported to Community hospital with minor to moderate injuries. It is not clear whether Karina Del Ray has a DUI attorney or not.
Operating while intoxicated legislation in Indiana
According to Bloomington Indiana DUI attorneys, much like every other state in the country, Indiana has its share of drunken driving offenders and takes measures to curb the dangerous and illegal practice.
Technically, an OWI is when a non-commercial adult driver is operating a motor vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) of 0.08% or more. For people under the age of 21 and for commercial drivers, the thresholds are much lower and a zero tolerance policy is enforced.
Those who are convicted of their OWI charges are subjected to a variety of penalties depending on the severity of the crime (was there a crash? did anyone get injured? Did it lead to any deaths? Has the offender been convicted of DUI previously?, and other related issues). The punishments are, in most cases, fines, prison sentences, ignition interlock devices, community service, counselling, and ankle bracelets.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Indiana is essentially an “implied consent” state, which means that you agree to be subjected to sobriety testing (field, breath, urine, blood) when you apply for a driver’s license. This is why anyone that feels they have been wrongly charged of drunken driving should appoint a qualified and experienced Indiana DUI attorney who can be reached right here: http://haskell-law.org/. This is what Guy Haskell does best – though there are no guarantees.
