Throughout Virginia, law enforcement is constantly on the lookout for drivers who might be committing various infractions. One act that can cause a serious amount of damage to people and property is driving while intoxicated. If there is a conviction, a driver will have to deal with harsh penalties that can have life-changing effects. In addition to the drunk driving charges, other issues could lead to the allegations that multiple offenses were committed, making the aftermath worse for the driver.

A 49-year-old man was stopped by law enforcement at approximately 2:00 a.m. because of suspicion of driving under the influence. As the officer investigated, the man refused to cooperate and is alleged to have bitten the officer on the leg. He was charged with a second incident of driving under the influence within the past five to 10 years, resisting arrest, refusal to submit to sobriety tests, driving while his license was revoked, assault on a law enforcement officer and obstructing justice.

Facing drunk driving charges is bad enough, but when it is combined with other allegations the long-term consequences that the accused can face are exponential. Furthermore, the amount of alcohol allegedly in the person's system often affects what the penalties are. If the alleged perpetrator refused to cooperate and is accused of committing other illegal acts, there will be a litany of charges to face.

In this incident, the driver was being stopped due to suspicion of driving under the influence and instead of cooperating with the officer, is alleged to have resisted arrest going so far as to bite the officer. The charges this man faces are extensive. When a person is in a situation such as this, her or she may want to begin laying the foundation for a defense as soon as possible by seeking legal assistance.
