Dancing driver in Missouri accused of drunk driving

It is almost always nerve-wracking for drivers to look in their rear-view mirrors and notice the flashing lights of a police vehicle. While the instinct of some may be to immediately hit their brakes, not everyone responds with fear. In fact, police have accused a driver in Missouri of drunk driving after he allegedly began dancing after he was pulled over.

Police say that they received calls one afternoon on a day in mid-August about a driver who was allegedly speeding and running traffic lights. When an officer caught up with the driver, he initiated a stop. While reports indicate that the driver stopped, police claim that he turned up his radio before getting out of his vehicle and dancing.

Police say that the 24-year-old driver's blood alcohol content was over the legal limit. It is unclear how his BAC was determined. He now faces multiple charges, including careless driving and driving while intoxicated.

People do not always respond to a stressful situation in the same way; often, an unorthodox response, however, can be misinterpreted. Even though police claim that his BAC was above legally allowed limits, there is room for error in the instruments used to take such measurements. Often, people accused of drunk driving and other crimes in Missouri have little legal training and, as a result, lack confidence in their ability to make informed decisions about their cases. Fortunately, there are experienced professionals who can provide the necessary guidance.  With these professionals on their side, those accused of a crime may feel more confident in their decisions and less stress about their overall situation.
