NY Sports Announcer Busted for DUI Over Holiday Weekend

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

This past 4th of July weekend, new New York Knicks announcer Spero Dedes was reportedly arrested for DUI in the Hamptons.  Officers pulled over his 2006 BMW for speeding and suspected the broadcaster of being under the influence of alcohol.  Gwinnett County law enforcement officers were busy cracking down on DUI here in Georgia over the holiday weekend as well.  In Buford, many Georgians were enjoying the lake and the Mall of Georgia when they were stopped by officers for a variety of traffic infractions.  If the officer smelled alcohol, or if you admitted to drinking when asked, the officer likely asked you to take some field sobriety tests.  If the officer deems you failed these field evaluations, he will put you under arrest for a Gwinnett County DUI.  The next step is that he will ask you to take a breath or blood test, or risk losing your license for a year. 

Keep in mind that an arrest for DUI in Buford does not mean a conviction.  Anyone can be arrested.  The state of Georgia prosecuting attorneys need proof beyond a reasonable doubt to convict.  If you are unfairly charged with DUI in Gwinnett County, call Buford DUI lawyer Richard Lawson and his associated attorneys for a free case consult.  There are many defenses available and we have years experience getting our clients the best possible results.
