Alleged drunk driver wakes up on wrong side of the tracks


A Chicago woman was arrested and charged with DUI after police observed her literally driving her car on the railroad tracks.  Fortunately, there were no oncoming trains or this story would have had a very different ending.

When the officer finally got her to stop and asked her what she was doing, she said she was trying to find an ATM.  At a potential trial, her defense attorney would attempt to keep this statement from being heard by the jury but ultimately it would likely be admitted to show how intoxicated and unaware of her surroundings she was.

If you've been contacted by law enforcement in Denver or surrounding Colorado counties and charged with a DUI or other crime, please call me to discuss your options.
