South Carolina Deputy Chief arrested for suspected DUI

A drunk driving charge is one to not take lightly. It has the ability to generate serious penalties, impact a person's ability to operate a motor vehicle and even tarnish a person's personal and professional reputation. Thus, it is important for those accused of a drunk driving charge to understand their situation and what defense options they might have.
