Drunk Driver Crashes, Attempts Martial Arts to Escape

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DUI accident fatalities increased from 9,865 in 2011 to 10,322 in 2013. The NHTSA reported that the majority of DUI accidents with fatalities involved drivers whose blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.15 percent or higher, or almost twice the legal limit. A 2006 study by the NHTSA estimated that there is one drunk driving fatality in the United States every 30 minutes.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

A 26-year-old man in another state was arrested after he crashed into a stone wall and then became belligerent. The driver punched a window, swore at a witness, threatened to slit the throat of the witness, then confronted police who arrived at the scene. Officers tried to pin the driver down but he used a martial arts technique to get free. The driver was punched in the face in order to subdue him.

The driver was arraigned on charges of DUI, resisting arrest, assault and battery and drug possession when Xanax was found in his car without a prescription. The driver had a prior DUI arrest and had an arrest warrant at the time of the incident.
