On Friday a car crashed into an apartment in Lakewood, Washington injuring a man inside the apartment. The car allegedly drove through the wall of a ground floor unit at the Emerald Village Apartments and hit the man while he was playing X-Box. He was allegedly trapped underneath the vehicle for a period of time. Eventually the man was freed and was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. The driver, however, will undoubtedly be facing a threat to his criminal record because he was arrested and is being investigated for driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (DUI).
A DUI charge can arise when you least expect it. No doubt the driver of the vehicle in the above situation was not anticipating getting arrested, investigated and charged with DUI. DUI is not an “intent” based crime nor a “knowledge” based crime. It is a crime that simply violates social morals. Regardless, it is a crime – a very serious one at that.
