Drunk driving charge against North Carolina woman

For many people, the end of a romantic relationship is often complicated. Often, the relationship lingers, and sometimes leads to bitter feelings, including hurt and anger. Regardless of how difficult a breakup can be, it rarely leads to violence. Unfortunately, police have arrested a woman in North Carolina and accused her of  drunk driving, assault and domestic violence.

The incident happened just after 5 a.m. on a day in September. According to reports, some sort of car chase occurred. Police say that a 21-year-old woman chased down her ex-boyfriend's vehicle. Once she caught up with the vehicle, she allegedly drove into it repeatedly.

Police reportedly conducted a blood alcohol test following the incident. She reportedly registered a .09, barely over the legal limit. She was taken into custody and is held without bond. The event has been labeled a domestic dispute by magistrates. It is unclear what initially sparked the incident

In addition to the allegation of drunk driving, the young woman is also charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Unfortunately, there is often nothing more terrifying for someone than spending time in jail. As such, those facing criminal charges in North Carolina often ask an experienced criminal defense attorney to help them spend as little time behind bars as possible, including during the early stages of a case. Knowing that there is someone willing to fight on their behalf can often help eliminate some of the stress associated with the criminal justice system by ensuring that defendants are able to make informed decisions about their cases.
