A 21-year-old male who drove while under the influence and crashed his car in Dekalb County, Illinois, would need representation from a drunk driving attorney. Deputies with the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Office arrested Tyler Williams of Elburn early Sunday morning, September 13th.
According to the crash report, around 2 a.m., deputies responded to Old State Road east of Church Street after a call about a single-vehicle accident. Upon arrival, they found a car in a ditch on the south side of the roadway.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the car flipped several times before ending up in the ditch. Williams admitted to the lawmen that he consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel of the vehicle, and they took him into custody. There is no additional information.
Under the Illinois Vehicle Code, a person who operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs, or an illegal chemical compound is answerable to a DUI charge. The law provides that drivers must have less than .08% blood alcohol concentration.
Those who operate commercial vehicles or school buses must not have .04% BAC or above, and the state has a zero-tolerance policy for teenage drivers. Anyone who gets convicted of the offense faces possible imprisonment, fines, and revocation of driving privileges.
The number of times the offender has been arrested for a DUI would determine the severity of the punishment he or she would get. Drivers can avoid the above by seeking an alternative means of transportation when impaired.
