New DUI Decisions from the Court of Criminal Appeals

State v Berry

Berry passed a police cruiser going the opposite direction. When he did he ran off the roadway and hit the curb. The officer turned around, pulled him over and found an impaired driver. Berry went to trial and was convicted for his 3rd DUI. The Court gave him 200 days in the slammer to think it over.

State v Patterson

Patterson was driving so badly that a fireman pulled him over. The fireman flashed his lights and honked his horn until he stopped. The fireman, also an E.M.T., discovered Patterson had tipped back a few too many. When Patterson realized the fireman was not an officer, he peeled out and nearly hit him. When officers found him later Patterson locked himself in his car. He's locked in the jail now.
