Man arrested on DWI charges after crashing expensive sports car

It is generally understood that driving under the influence is a violation of the law and can lead to various penalties if the person is convicted. Drivers in Austin need to know about the potential consequences of charges for driving while intoxicated, but they also should know about how an investigation and arrest is supposed to be conducted to adhere to the law from the law enforcement point of view. Regardless of the circumstances of the alleged DWI, one of the most important factors in the outcome is to have a strong legal defense.

According to a recent report, a man was placed under arrest for DWI offenses after he crashed his expensive sports car. In the incident, the man, 28, is alleged to have driven a 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale into the woods after failing to negotiate a curve in the road while traveling at an estimated 100 miles per hour. Law enforcement officials stated that the vehicle flew into the air and traveled approximately 40 feet, going off a bridge. There were two other people, a man and a woman, in the car with the driver. They suffered lacerations.

Law enforcement officials arrested the driver and charged him with DWI after they allegedly detected alcohol on him. The man reportedly confessed to having had two beers earlier. It was also reported that the man's speech was slurred and that he spoke at a rapid pace. The Austin Fire Department posted on social media that the vehicle flipped and landed on its side after plunging down a ravine. The vehicle in question is listed at a cost of $385,000 and is extremely powerful.

While this case will elicit certain beliefs about how lucky the man and his passengers were and that he must have been under the influence to make such a mistake, the reality is that he still may have the basis for a defense against the DWI charges. For example, the testing procedures must be performed based on the proper legal protocol in order to be admissible. There might be a logical explanation for what happened apart from him being under the influence.
