Gwinnett DUI Arrests on the Rise?

Posted by Richard Lawson | Jul 04, 2011 | 0 Comments

Are Gwinnett police officers arresting more and more people for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol ( DUI )?  It certainly seems that way.  A DUI arrest is a overwhelming and troubling experience.  Many residents of Berkeley Lake in Gwinnett County, GA are law abiding citizens who have never been arrested before.  But Gwinnett County officers are out in full force in the summer months.  So a Berkeley Lake married couple is heading home from a summer barbecue where they have consumed a couple of beers.  Their driving is fine, but they are stopped by Gwinnett County officers at a roadblock and the officer claims he smells an odor of alcohol.  If the  breathalyzer or field sobriety tests are refused, the Gwinnett County prosecuting attorneys do not have a whole lot to move forward on, but the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) will seek a one year suspension of your Georgia drivers license based on the DUI arrest alone.  Many Berkeley Lake residents need their license for work and school.
