South Carolina man accused of having BAC three times legal limit

Authorities in Lexington recently charged a 33-year-old businessman with DUI. The arresting officer reported that the man was speeding, ran a red light and nearly drove his vehicle into a pond. The businessman has previously received Lexington Chamber's Young Professional of the Year in 2012.

The report indicates that despite being advised he was under arrest for drunk driving charges, the driver was compliant with the officer. After pulling to the side of the road for the traffic stop, the man advised the officer that he had consumed one beer at an event. He failed a series of field sobriety tests and later blew a .23 after submitting to a breathalyzer at the county jail.

The next morning, he was granted a $2,267 bond. By law, his license was suspended for being charged with having a blood alcohol content above .16 while operating a motor vehicle.

Individuals who are charged with DUI face serious consequences if convicted. Experienced DUI attorneys may be able to assist those accused by getting charges reduced or thrown out of court. Some courts take into consideration a person's criminal record and community involvement. Courts may also take into account how an accused person and the arresting officer behaved at the time of the arrest. Misconduct by an officer can possibly result in charges being dismissed. Breathalyzer machines are sometimes not calibrated properly, which can lead to incorrect readings. Final dispositions on cases depend heavily upon the evidence presented.
