"Getting Arrested Saved My Life"

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

DUI is often a person's first and only experience with being arrested and taken to jail. For extra fun, someone's Fulton County jail mughot can linger on in cyberspace indefinitely. It is expensive and embarrassing. That is why I was surprised when I saw that a member of the popular music group, The Black Eyed Peas, feels that his an impaired driving arrest actually saved his life. Singer Jaime Luis Gomez, better known as Taboo, was arrested in 2007 following a minor car accident in CA.

He was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. He recalls being in a dark place of alcohol and drug abuse at the time. The arrest was his wake up call and he realized he needed to kick his substance abuse and become a better father. That is certainly the way to make the best of a DUI. Unfortunately, not everyone works in the entertainment industry that is liberal about alcohol and drug convictions. Sometimes, one's career can be adversely affected by a DUI charge or drug offense.
