Man accused of DUI after running a red light

A 43-year-old man was charged with DUI after being involved in a traffic accident on Aug. 10. The traffic accident occurred in Havre de Grace, Maryland, where Route 40 intersects with Otsego Street, at 3:43 p.m. Police allege that they detected an odor resembling alcohol on the man's breath, which news reports site as the reason for the DUI charge.

Maryland man arrested for drunk driving after single-car crash

Drinking and driving in Maryland is a serious offense that can mean substantial fines, a loss of driving privileges and jail time, among other things. A 22-year-old Leonardtown man possibly faces those consequences after his involvement in a single-car accident just after midnight on a recent Sunday. After refusing to take any field sobriety tests, the sheriff's deputy took him into custody for drunk driving.

For many people in Maryland who are pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving, police may or may not have a valid reason to suspect wrongdoing.

When an officer is almost hit by a suspected drunk driver, however, that makes the determination all the easier.

What rights do Maryland drivers have in DWI stops?

Driving down the road and seeing the flashing red and blue lights in your rearview mirror can put any driver on edge. No one wants to be stopped by police and many people in Maryland end up getting very nervous or agitated if this happens. These reactions can be even more pronounced if a driver may have had a drink or two before getting behind the wheel.
