Football Player Arrested for DUI Over 4th of July Weekend

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 06, 2011 | 0 Comments

Over the holiday weekend, former professional football player, fullback Lorenzo Neal, crashed into a pole.  There were no reported injures to any other driver.  Mr. Neal was suspected with and allegedly charged with drunk driving for being over California's legal limit for blood alcohol content.  

Mr. Neal is certainly not alone.  On long weekend, Gwinnett County officers love to set up roadblocks to stop drivers coming back from Lake Lanier and other festivities and potentially arrest drivers for drunk or drugged driving.  Many holiday drivers are in the  Sugar Hill area of Gwinnett County and have their fun weekend turned awful when they are sent to jail for DUI.  A roadblock is tough because the Sugar Hill officers stop all vehicles, even without any evidence of poor or impaired driving. 

If you or someone you know is charged with a Gwinnett DUI, call Sugar Hill DUI defense attorney Richard S. Lawson and his associated lawyers for a free case consultation.  Time is of the essence as you only have 10 days from the date of your DUI arrest to appeal the suspension of your driving privileges with the Department of Driver Services.  Otherwise, you face a one year suspension of your Georgia driving privileges.
