Drivers in Collin should be cognizant of the potential consequences of DWI charges. If a driver commits the crime of driving while intoxicated, not only are passengers, other drivers and pedestrians on the road placed in danger, but the driver will have a slew of punishments to deal with in the event of a conviction.
Even former NCAA and NFL football players are not immune to DWI charges, as was proven when former Texas A&M and Houston Oilers quarterback John "Bucky" Richardson was charged with a crime for DWI. Mr. Richardson, 45, was stopped by law enforcement when his vehicle was seen swerving. Upon investigation, the officer found that the driver was swaying, had glassy and bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. He was given field sobriety tests and failed them. He admitted that he had consumed three beers earlier that evening. Mr. Richardson was arrested and released on $3,000 bail.
