Unfortunately for some, driving while intoxicated is not the best way to fight the power. On Thursday morning, Public Enemy rapper and Flava of Love star, Flava Flav was arrested by NHP for a number of Nevada driving infractions including drunk driving in Las Vegas. The late 80s, early 90s rapper’s real name is William Drayton, Jr. NHP booked the member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with an open container violation, marijuana possession, speeding in Clark county and Clark County DUI. A spokesperson for the NHP, Loy Hixson, informed reporters that the Mr. Drayton alerted police when they saw him travelling over 70 miles per hour in an area zoned not to exceed 45 miles per hour. This happened on Interstate 15 near Las Vegas’ international airport, McCarran Airport. In addition to the charges above, police also learned Flava Flav was driving with a suspended automobile registration and suspended licenses. The car was a 2005 Black BMW.

Earlier this week the Nevada legislature passed a bill to give more rights to those pulled over for driving while intoxicated in Las Vegas. The Nevada Senate approved unanimously via vote Assembly Bill 67. AB67 updates DUI law regarding blood test. If signed by Governor Sandoval, the bill will require law enforcement to get a warrant when drivers decline to give samples needed by police to prove DUI in Southern Nevada. The bill also changed DUI law so when people who fall asleep in cars without it running, they can not be given a DUI citation. The United States and Nevada Supreme Court had recently issued decisions that necessitated the changes to the law. While the bill passes the Nevada Senate without any no votes, when voted on by the entire Assembly, three members of the Assembly voted against it. Those three votes were from Las Vegas Assemblywoman Dina Neal, Assemblywoman Irene Bustamante Adams, also from Las Vegas and Reno, NV Assemblywoman, Teresa Benitez-Thompson. AB 67 was proffered by the Nevada Attorney General and the Assembly Judiciary Committee. When the bill was heard in the Judiciary Committees of the Assembly and the Senate the office of the Nevada Attorney General [...]

We constantly say that Las Vegas DUI citations can happen to everyone and are often surprised by how true. Last weekend, a prominent and public face of Governor Sandoval’s wildly popular administration was arrested Friday evening for driving while intoxicated. The communications director for the Governor’s office, 29-year old Mari St. Martin was cited Friday for the DUI. Ms. St. Martin was pulled over when police saw her driving in the incorrect direction on a one way street. The governor, in a statement, expressed his disappointment in Ms. St. Marin and praised Reno police and Nevada Highway Patrol for their part in the arrest. For her part, the communications director for the Sandoval Administration released her own statement apologizing for the infraction and promised to cooperate with any and all investigations. Ms. St. Martin was raised in Ely, NV and had previously worked on campaigns and even Nevada offices of two prominent Republican members of the Nevada congressional delegation, Senator Heller and Representative Heck. Ms. Martin graduated from UNLV and also had worked for a number of Las Vegas public relations and marketing firms. Ms. St. Martin in 2012 ran for Nevada State Senate in Senate District 9.

Jorge Paz-Herrera was intoxicated behind the wheel of his pickup, as he drove along the wrong side of highway 215 and subsequently crashed into Jennie Bergstrom as she drove. Mr. Paz-Herrera not only had been arrested for drunk driving a number of times previously, at the time of the crash, he was driving on a revoked license for a DUI accident in Las Vegas that had happened previously. The September 2014 crash resulted in the death of Jennie Bergstrom, yet Mr. Paz-Herrera only sustained minor injuries. 30-year old Paz-Herrera plead guilty to the Clark County DUI death. This was the 4th time he had been arrested for driving while intoxicated in Southern Nevada. The sentencing hearing for Mr. Paz-Herrera in the last week of April 2015 was attended by a number of Ms. Bergstrom’s family members and friends.

Anyone can get a DUI in Southern Nevada - all you need to do is have a couple drinks and get behind the wheel. Often, when a DUI occurs in Las Vegas, there are injuries that are readily apparent, whether it is an automobile accident, damaged property or even the death of someone driving another vehicle, a pedestrian or even a passenger in the intoxicated driver’s car. In rare cases, however, it can take months for the injuries that can be attributed to drunk driving in Clark County to come to light. One arrest for driving while intoxicated from early February is now being linked to an injury of Nevada’s senior Senator, Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid. In February, Senator Reid’s brother, Larry Reid, was arrested in connection with a DUI arrest in Boulder City, approximately 25 miles to the east of Las Vegas. In the arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol in Las Vegas, Mr. Larry Reid was cited for a number of additional violations of the law. Those violations include assault of an officer, possession of a weapon while under the influence of alcohol, not wearing a seatbelt and failure to keep to the right. Many [...]

Nevada Supreme Court Lacks Budget Due To Increased Las Vegas DUI Citations

By | 2015-03-29T17:52:27-07:00 March 29th, 2015|Categories: DUI, General Ticket Info, Henderson Legal News, Las Vegas Legal News, Local News, Online Legal Services|Tags: , , , , |

An increased focus on traffic safety as opposed to simply writing tickets for revenue purposes has had an unintended consequence for the budget of the Nevada court system. As Las Vegas area police agencies have increased ticketing for driving infractions such as driving while intoxicated in Las Vegas in an effort to reduce the number of pedestrian fatalities and automobile accidents that have resulted in death. Finding for the increased focus on Southern Nevada driving infractions has come from grants from the State of Nevada’s Joining Forces grant. The Joining Forces grant has been used to ameliorate budgets from increased overtime for police, the costs associated with consumables used in DUI checkpoints and increased advertising for pedestrian awareness, Clark County DUI and even speeding. Since this increased ticketing for drunk driving in Southern Nevada, speeding and even cell phone use while driving began, the money available to the Nevada court system to operate. Currently, for the budget year 2015, the Nevada State court system is showing a $700,000 deficit. Typically, the Supreme Court of Nevada gets between $30 and $110 for each ticket issued by Las Vegas police. The number of tickets written in Nevada in 2010 were over 615,000. [...]

Last Friday, a Southern Nevada assemblyman was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Carson City. The Assembly representative from District 18 in Las Vegas was picked up by Carson City police at 3am Friday morning in the front seat of his parked car with his hand on the stick shift and his right foot on the gas pedal and the engine on and heater running. Assemblyman Carrillo, a holder of a conceal weapons permit for Nevada, notified police he had a loaded handgun in the glove compartment of his automobile. The Assemblyman from District 18 was booked on driving while intoxicated in Nevada and returned to work on Tuesday morning, March 3rd. Mr. Carrillo posted bail of $3,000 with Carson City traffic court. There are a number of DUI instances where the arrested individual was not driving their automobile, per se, but instead, sleeping in their vehicle. In colder climes, or even the Las Vegas desert, which can fall to low temperatures in the winter months, those individuals have been busted because they have turned on their cars to ensure the heater is on and they don’t freeze. Unfortunately, law enforcement still consider this a Nevada DUI offense as it is [...]

Other Reasons Behind Las Vegas DUI arrests

By | 2015-02-07T23:51:25-07:00 February 7th, 2015|Categories: DUI, Online Legal Services|Tags: , , , , , |

There are awards given out for the greatest number of Las Vegas DUI arrests given out in the Las Vegas area by the Nevada Highway Patrol. Let that sink in for a minute. Officers get awarded for arresting people, no matter how the case turns out, the circumstances, or the true nature of whether the person was actually intoxicated or not. We certainly are not arguing that endangering others and potentially causing serious car injuries or deaths by driving dangerously is a good idea. But good people are arrested for driving under the influence for no good reason. Officers are having bad days, and can interpret legitimate and respectful questions as resistance and back talk, and use that as a reason to scrutinize a road test for driving under the influence in Las Vegas beyond what it should be, and initiate an arrest. Equipment is notorious for not being accurate. There are rules about how much and how often breathalyzers must be inspected and recalibrated, and that is often ignored or forgotten. Blood test results can be and sometimes are misplaced or misnamed, or other things that and remove the viability of the test for driving under the influence. And [...]

The Joining Forces grant was at it again for the Super Bowl, which meant 28 people got arrested for driving under the influence at a Clark County checkpoint. This Las Vegas DUI enforcement was up and running for seven hours on the night of the big game. It began stopping people about 6pm, or right around halftime. The checkpoint stayed up and running until around 1am that evening (also known as the next morning, but who’s counting?).

It should surprise no one that police are setting up checkpoints and stepping up enforcement around Las Vegas DUI activities for the Super Bowl Weekend. The police usually set up checkpoints in Southern Nevada for DUI enforcement. A big weekend like the Super Bowl is a relatively obvious time for them to target, given that football and beer are almost synonymous, and the parties surrounding the big game most people would believe are incomplete without a few beverages. So police will be on extra duty, with checkpoints, patrols, and other enforcement opportunities taking place across the valley. That recent article has a large number of different police departments planning for stepped up patrolling operations, from Henderson Police to the Las Vegas Metro Police, Nevada Highway Patrol, and others participating in the Joining Forces program. That interdepartmental grouping is paid for through the Nevada Department of Public Safety funded task force focused on driver safety. If you’re charged with a DUI in Las Vegas, whether it’s from extra enforcement surrounding the Super Bowl or just a normal traffic stop on a random weekday afternoon, or anything in between, can help.

The number of people arrested for driving under the influence in Clark County is way down. Looking at the numbers versus the last two years, the drop is almost shocking. According to the final year end statistics that the Las Vegas Metro Police force put out, there were a little more than 4,500 people charged with DUI in Southern Nevada areas patrolled by Metro Police. That’s in comparison to close to 6,000 DUI charges in 2013. Looking at 2012 the numbers and the delta between them is even bigger – almost 8,000 DUI arrests.

Could it be that people are drinking less, or just being more responsible with their driving? Maybe advertising and campaigns against drunk driving in Southern Nevada are having some effect. Could Metro be troubled with [...]

Light NYE for DUI Arrests in Las Vegas

Apparently this New Year’s Eve celebration in Las Vegas was relatively low key from a law enforcement perspective. There were still plenty of people having a good time, but fewer people arrested for driving under the influence in Las Vegas, as well as a host of other misdemeanors and felonies. That there were DUI arrests in Southern Nevada on New Year’s Eve is fairly unremarkable, as that happens across every city across the country. While some might find that disappointing, that the number of people arrested and charged with drinking and driving is higher on that night, it’s been that way as long as this was the biggest party night of the year. But this year, compared to other recent years, was mild, according to the Las Vegas Metro Police force. Only an estimated less than one percent of all the partiers in Las Vegas for New Year’s were arrested – 32 arrests out of a projected 340,000 people who came to party on the strip and related areas, including Downtown Las Vegas. That includes nine people who were charged with DUI in Clark County. If you were charged with driving under the influence in the Las Vegas area, either [...]

Those who do enjoy a cocktail, a glass of wine, a beer or more are encouraged to find other means of getting home than getting behind the wheel.
