A man who was pulled over for unrelated reasons is facing a serious set of charges, according to local law enforcement. Washington police say they pulled the man over for speeding, but wound up hitting him with a laundry list of alleged infractions. They include DUI charges and charges involving endangering a minor. It is unclear if he is currently in police custody.
A man who held the position of police commander has been arrested and subsequently fired from his position on the force. The man, who had served more than a decade and a half as an officer, was arrested on drunk driving charges. The Washington man is fighting the charges and is arguing against his termination.
In certain situations, it can be difficult to determine where the line is between sobriety and the legal limit. Even responsible people can make a miscalculation. Many factors go into determining a person's level of intoxication, so it can vary from day to day. This can make it difficult to make the judgment as to whether or not it's safe to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
