Las Vegas DUI and Much, Much More

By | 2016-07-20T00:14:44-07:00 July 20th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: |

Even officers of the law have their problems with Nevada Highway Patrol or the Las Vegas Metro Police when they are off duty. Now, there are certainly plenty of pieces of anecdotal evidence that off duty cops do get favorable treatment from their brothers in blue. This is not terribly surprising on a certain level, as it happens in any industry. Bartenders give free drinks to other bartenders, contractors help each other out, doctors help each other out, it is a common refrain. However, the folks who enforce the laws are not supposed to go easy on anyone more than another. At least in this recent case it appears that they did not. The off duty cop was hit was a DUI charge in Las Vegas, as well as a whole host of other offenses both big and small. From the recent news report on the Las Vegas DUI arrest, here is the list as initially reported: Felony DUI with substantial bodily harm Felony leaving the scene of a crash Two counts of misdemeanor hit-and-run property damage Three counts of misdemeanor failure to use due care Three counts misdemeanor failure to give information or render aid Misdemeanor failure to drive [...]

What’s it worth to have a Las Vegas DUI charge dropped? It depends a lot on who you are. For everybody, it’s worth a pretty good amount. Amount of what, you ask? Amount of everything, for starters.

By | 2016-04-16T15:13:01-07:00 April 16th, 2016|Categories: DUI, Las Vegas Legal News|Tags: , , , |

The Traffic Bureau of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department recently announced that they will be conducting a DUI checkpoint in Las Vegas in the next few days. They were a little more coy than they sometimes are about the exact location, saying only that it would be in the Las Vegas Valley. They narrowed it down ever so slightly beyond that, saying it would be where there had been two fatal Las Vegas car crashes, as well a host of other traffic events. Per the news release on the Las Vegas DUI checkpoint: “The checkpoint will be conducted on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 between the hours of 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. The location selected for the checkpoint will be in the Las Vegas Valley on a major roadway that has had 87 events, drunk drivers and traffic accidents, and two fatal accidents in the last six months . . .

Happy Super Bowl Day! For most Americans, this is a fun, fun day. The whole season has boiled down to this: the two best teams, or the two teams that outlasted their injuries and willed their ways through to the end. Maybe your favorite team is in the big game, or maybe one of your most hated which gives you the fire to watch the game with that extra little something. For many people, it’s just a party – they may not be the biggest football fans, but this is a day of fun – people have parties, bars and restaurants have parties, casinos have parties to out do each other with the biggest, wildest, most celebrity filled party. If your favorite team or your favorite nemesis team isn’t in the big game, there’s still the commercials, which rarely fail to disappoint. But, be wary. Especially if you have no stake in the game and are just free to party, have a safe way home. Take a taxi, have a friend who wasn’t drinking drive you home, Uber, whatever it is, be careful. For starters, you don’t want to cause a Las Vegas vehicle accident. It’s a real concern if [...]

The Cowboy Commissioner is in Las Vegas DUI news again, which is really not news to any who follow Las Vegas traffic law issue like we do at It’s probably not surprising to many people that the news this time is regarding his driving under the influence in Las Vegas charge stemming from a car crash he was involved in in December of last year. That former Clark County Commissioner, one Tom Collins by reputation and Clarence Weldon Collins Jr. by birth certificate, not at all unknown in the courts and law enforcement system of Southern Nevada towns as well as the highway patrol, and not, shall we say, just for being a Clark County Commissioner. Former Commissioner Collins has been in trouble with the law publically at least since a reckless driving charge back in the early nineties. He’s had livestock allegedly escape and injure people, there’s a famous incident with firearms as well. Collins pleaded “no contest” to these recent charges. That’s a phrase, a piece of legal jargon, that isn’t much used on popular depictions of the law. We understand why, of course – there’s no drama in a confusing term that means usually means we [...]

New Technologies May Put A Stop To Las Vegas Drunk Driving

By | 2015-07-08T10:54:38-07:00 July 8th, 2015|Categories: DUI, General Ticket Info, Road Rules, Technology and the LAW|Tags: , , , , |

Soon, your car may stop you from drunk driving in Las Vegas. New technology is being developed that will prevent automobiles from working if the driver behind the steering wheel is inebriated. This technology could have the same life saving efficacy as seat belts or airbags. The technology, intended to prevent Clark County DUI will use a number of factors to determine if the potential operator of the motor vehicle is intoxicated. One of the factors will be to test samples from the driver’s breath. The process is being designed as a seamless system which will work automatically, without bothering or alerting the person behind the wheel. Another system will check the driver’s alcohol levels when he or she touches a certain part of the car. This could be integrated into the car’s start button or the steering wheel. Again, this test will be completed imperceptibly. These new technological solutions would prevent the embarrassment of current ignition lock systems that have large breath collection systems. Anti-drunk driving advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving has approved of the technology and the president of the organization has been vocal in support. The system is being touted as having the potential to prevent [...]

When Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Flava Flav, was arrested last month on suspicions of speeding and DUI in Las Vegas, the member of the pioneering hip-hop group, Public Enemy, did not know that the arrest would have implications on his pending legal troubles in the State of New York. The 56 year old, whose actual name is William Drayton, was entering a plea of not guilty of charges of driving with a suspended license, which carries a felony, speeding and two additional misdemeanors. The arrest happened when Mr. Drayton was rushing to the funeral of his mother, in January 2014. While a plea agreement was being negotiated with prosecutors in the case, the prosecutors declined once they considered the new pending charges in Southern Nevada driving while intoxicated. In May, Flava Flav was stopped near McCarran Airport when police clocked the rapper travelling at 73 miles per hour. The posted speed limit on the onramp to the highway was 45 miles per hour. Las Vegas police then searched the car and found marijuana. Prosecuting attorneys will finalize charges against the rapper once the results of a blood test taken of the hip-hop rapper and reality television star. [...]
