New Jersey man faces DUI, drug charges following crash

Many people in New Jersey and across the country are passionate about the professional sports teams they support and likely feel disappointment following a loss. In fact, police in New Jersey claim that a man claimed that he became intoxicated because a football team performed poorly. The man now faces DUI and drug charges.

The incident that led to the man's arrest happened on a day in mid-November. According to reports, the 57-year-old man was involved in crash just after 5 p.m. Police say that when they arrived on the scene, the man staggered toward them and told them that he had struck the rear of a car that was stopped in traffic.

After allegedly noticing a "heavy" smell of alcohol, police administered a field sobriety test that they say the man failed. A search of his vehicle allegedly revealed an open bottle of whisky, a substance suspected to be marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Tests reportedly revealed that his blood alcohol content as .13.

Often, measures of sobriety such as field sobriety tests are open to subjective interpretations while Breathalyzers, for example, can be incorrect due to calibration issues or other human errors. As such, those facing criminal charges as a result may want an attorney with experience with such cases to carefully review their case. Because of the drug charges and other allegations against the New Jersey man, he likely has several important decisions that he must make over the coming weeks; having an experienced professional guiding him through the process could reduce some of the stress associated with such a situation.
