Four Officers Caught DUI over New Year’s Day

One of the major causes of injuries on the roads is people who drive under the influence of alcohol.  Every year, thousands of people get killed and injured because of alcohol. Anyone could be affected by this substance, even people who are responsible for arresting people who drink and drive.

Four Atlanta public safety employees are under investigation after a DUI investigation revealed that they were drinking and driving around New Year’s Day. One officer allegedly struck a hydrant in Buckhead with his personal vehicle. He was found with two open containers of beer in his car. Another officer that was caught has since resigned from the force.

It’s unfortunate that officers of the law were caught drinking and driving. It doesn’t take much to impair judgment. Many drunk drivers report that they felt they were safe to drive before their arrest. However, it can sometimes take more alcohol than the 0.08 BAC limit to notice impairment.

If you are injured by a drunk driver, there is a way you can get help. The attorneys of Stokes & Kopitsky have years of experience defending injury claims. The recovery from an auto accident can be expensive and time-consuming. You don’t have to take your circumstances lying down.

If you live in the North Georgia area, especially in Atlanta, Savannah, and Macon, we urge you to call us immediately if you have been injured for any reason. Contact us at the number at the top of the page.
