Wrong-way driver arrested on DUI charge

A driver who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol caused a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer. A witness had alerted authorities to a wrong-way driver shortly beforehand, but police were not able to reach the scene in time to prevent the accident. No one was killed in the wreck, which California police expressed surprise over. The driver who apparently caused the accident was arrested for DUI.

The semi-truck driver was heading south on I-15 when he says he spotted headlights coming toward him. According to police, the alleged drunk driver was heading north in the southbound lanes of the interstate. The semi-truck driver says he tried to avoid a collision by shifting the vehicle into a different lane, but claims that the other driver moved into the same lane too. Both vehicles sustained serious front-end damage, but no one died.

Police charge woman posing as nanny for theft, cruelty to child

Police in California recently arrested a woman they say had been falsely posing as a nanny. She is charged with identity theft as well as cruelty to a child by inflicting injury. Police say this is not her first encounter with the law nor her first time being accused of pretending to be a nanny.

Authorities believe that the woman initially posed as a mother seeking care for her own children in order to interview various nannies. During the interviews, she reportedly collected the nannies' personal information, which she said she would use to verify their credentials. Instead, she took the information and provided it to other families when she interviewed to be a nanny. The information would make it appear as if she had cleared various criminal background checks in the state of California.

It's not always 100% accurate, but it does give the police an idea of your level of intoxication, if any.

When you get stopped for a DUI, there are some things that you should not do if you want to protect your rights and best interests. Here are three things you should avoid doing when you're pulled over.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty in Domestic Violence Disputes

 

It is important to remember that domestic violence is a criminal charge, and the prosecutor must prove every element of the charge with evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.
