Man accused of drunk driving following North Carolina crash

People often react to potential conflict in unexpected ways. Some may face it head on, but for others it may be instinctual to try to avoid it. Unfortunately, police in North Carolina believe that a man who they claim was drunk driving was attempting to flee after an officer attempted a traffic stop.

The incident that led to the man's arrest happened during the early morning hours of a day in mid-November. According to reports, a police officer noticed a vehicle that he suspected was being driven by an impaired driver; it is unclear what led him to this suspicion. The officer claims that the driver failed to pull over when a stop was initiated.

As a result, reports claim, a chase ensued that led to a private gated community. The 30-year-old male driver suspected of being under the influence allegedly ran the vehicle off the side of the road before it landed on its roof in a retention pond. The police officer is said to have extricated the driver. Though the latter reportedly claimed that there was a passenger in the vehicle, rescue workers could not locate another person.

In addition to the allegation of drunk driving, the North Carolina man is also charged with felony flee to elude arrest, among other minor charges. The man's blood alcohol content at the time of the arrest -- and how it was determined -- is unclear. To help him examine the details of the case against him, he may choose to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can ensure that he is fully informed about all of his options.
