Why Am I Being Charged with Violation of Two Drunk Driving Laws?

Question: Why Am I Being Charged with Violation of Two Drunk Driving Laws?

Many individuals can come to our office and bring several tickets and ask us, “Why so many DUI charges for just one incident?” The reason is, is that the DUI statute is broken up in such a way so that you can be charged with a simple DUI, and let’s say at the same time if you cause an accident or injured someone, you could also be or additionally be charged with DUI causing property damage or DUI causing personal injury. So one event can actually trigger multiple charges on that particular arrest, and that’s why you can be charged separately and not just with one DUI.
