In Plano, DWI charges are serious with hefty potential consequences in the event of a conviction. A driver who commits a drunk driving offense needs to know, before getting behind the wheel, that the dangers to themselves, passengers, other drivers and pedestrians can be significant and punishments harsh.
Recently, a 54-year-old driver of a white Cadillac was arrested on DWI charges after leading police on a high-speed chase. Police had attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver failed to stop and tried to escape, reaching speeds of 105 miles-per-hour. In an attempt to end the pursuit, law enforcement placed spikes on the road in front of the Cadillac. In their first try with this strategy, one of the vehicle's tires was punctured but the driver didn't stop. In the second try, two more tires were punctured. The driver continued driving on the tire rims. He was eventually stopped and arrested. A female passenger was with him in the vehicle. She was not charged.
