St. Patrick's Day brings fun - and DUI arrests - to Oregon

St. Patrick's Day is one of those times of year when many Oregon residents will go out with friends and have a good time. This is especially true when the holiday falls on a weekend, as it did this year. But these types of holidays, just like Independence Day and New Year's Eve, almost always bring out increased law enforcement patrols, with a particular focus on drunk driving.

18-year-old arrested for alleged drunk driving

Most people need to use their car to get around. Without a car, getting to and from work, school or other obligations can be difficult and time consuming. For those that have been convicted of driving under the influence, life without a driver's license may be a reality. In Oregon, when someone is convicted of drunk driving, that person risks driver's license suspension -- even for a first offense.

Woman charged with DUII after allegedly hitting 2 pedestrians

When someone is caught driving after they have been drinking, a criminal case will likely follow if the person's blood alcohol content exceeds the legal limit of .08. When a person is arrested in Oregon for drunk driving, or driving under the influence of intoxicants, two separate actions follow. One is strictly on the criminal prosecution side. In this action, prosecutors will try to prove that the person was guilty of a DUII and the person could be sentenced to jail time, probation and fines, depending on the circumstances in the case.

But many people take things farther than that.
