Man with prior DWI faces drunk driving charges in New Hampshire

In some states, individuals who are convicted of DWI must have an alcohol ignition interlock device installed in their vehicles. Drivers blow into this device to test for intoxication in order to start the ignition. One man with such a device was recently arrested in New Hampshire on multiple charges related to drunk driving. He also allegedly had marijuana in his truck at the time police pulled him over.

According to reports, a woman called police and began following the 46-year-old man after his truck purportedly struck a tree and he continued to drive. She reported that he was weaving all over the street. Police claim that he showed obvious signs of intoxication when they stopped his vehicle. Additionally, he failed sobriety tests.

An inspection of his truck allegedly turned up several empty bottles of liquor and some marijuana. His truck was also equipped with an ignition interlock device due to a 2009 DWI conviction in another state. When police asked him about it, he claimed that he was able to blow into it to start his vehicle. Investigators are focusing on the device, testing its functionality and whether or not he used it properly.

The accused now faces four charges related to drunk driving in addition to drug-related charges. His previous convictions may make it more difficult to obtain leniency and may even affect his right to an objective hearing. As this man now faces his day in a New Hampshire court, he may find it beneficial to seek representation with knowledge of DWI-related criminal matters. This may help ensure that his legal rights are protected as he fights for a fair outcome.
