Police are accusing a man of being drunk when he crashed his vehicle, causing injuries to a passenger in the car. He was taken to the Milwaukee County Jail but was not charged with drunk driving at the time of a news report on the incident. According to the same news report the man is believed to have suffered a concussion during the accident. This may have been why police believed the man was under the influence of alcohol after the accident.
According to police reports, the man told authorities the sun got in his eyes after he passed through an intersection, causing him to lose control. The reports also indicate the woman who was taken to a hospital after an accident wasn't wearing a seatbelt, which may have resulted in her injuries.
When a person is arrested and not charged with a crime, it might be wise to speak with a criminal defense attorney. Sometimes police will ask a person questions that they don't have to answer, in order to gather more information that might be used against them in court or used to form charges against the person. An experienced Milwaukee criminal defense attorney can help a person charged with a crime understand their rights.
Police will work to gather evidence against a person so it can be helpful to formulate a rigorous criminal defense, especially if someone was injured in the alleged incident. An attorney will also make sure all evidence in the case was gathered legally and the person's rights were not violated during the course of any investigation.
