DUI arrests are not always alcohol-related. At the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson, we have seen a growing number of drug related DUI arrests in Atlanta. For example, Alpharetta police stopped a man for reckless driving in northern Fulton County. The man was observed driving a Dodge Charger 120 mph across two lanes on GA 400 headed northbound. The speed limit was posted as 65 mph. Police arrested the man and searched his car, finding what appeared to be marijuana.
The car was impounded and the motorist is now facing a list of charges: DUI, possession of marijuana, failure to maintain lane, reckless driving and speeding. Alpharetta courts treat these charges very seriously; he could be facing years in jail, high fines, loss of license and a serious of other penalties.
