Getting help with a Fourth of July DUI charge

Every year many Tennessee residents take to the roads to visit with family and friends over the Fourth of July holiday. The Fourth of July is an important day to celebrate the independence of the nation but also to embrace the special opportunities that the summer months offer. With pleasant weather and great company, individuals may spend their day outdoors, enjoying cook-outs and indulging in alcoholic beverages.

Law enforcement officers know that the Fourth of July is a time when individuals relax and partake in the legal consumption of alcohol. While drinking a beer in the home of a friend is not illegal, law enforcement officials look for individuals who leave their Fourth of July celebrations after consuming enough alcohol to make them intoxicated. A driver who is stopped for alleged drunk driving may wind up with a DUI charge if they are suspected of having consumed alcohol at a Fourth of July bash.

Attorney Sam Byrd hopes that the readers of this legal blog have happy and safe Fourth of July holidays, but he also knows that some individuals may fall into the difficult process of defending themselves against DUI allegations. His firm is prepared to support the men and women who are stopped, assessed, arrested and charged with drunk driving crimes, by protecting their rights and defense options.

As no two DUI cases will look the same, it is important that those facing DUI charges understand how the law may apply in their unique situations. His firm's website on drunk driving defense may help readers can learn more about this particular area of the law.
