2 Portland-area crashes result in property damage, DUII arrests

Many drivers who suddenly find themselves in immediate danger of being arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants worry about what comes next. That largely depends on the circumstances of the DUII incident, which can quickly spiral out of control if a driver panics and makes the situation worse.

Although many people who are convicted of driving under the influence never make the mistake of driving drunk again, there are plenty of drivers who have an addiction that causes them to repeat the offense over and over, even if they've been arrested several times. Many of these drivers assume that if they're able to drive drunk the first time, they can continue the habit indefinitely. But that assumption puts everyone at great risk.

Even before that famous mug shot of Nick Nolte surfaced years ago, people have obsessed over celebrities who find themselves in trouble with the law. The reality is that fame doesn't protect anyone from an arrest or a court date if authorities suspect they've done something illegal. And while an incriminating photo of an actor or professional athlete provides celebrity tabloid fodder that's entertaining to some, it can also serve as a reminder that everyone makes mistakes.

When people who have been drinking or consuming drugs make the choice to drive afterwards, they often attempt to protect themselves by keeping an eye out for police vehicles. Many who choose to drive under the influence assume they're safe to do so as long as they don't encounter an officer who can arrest them. This behavior is not only risky, but also not fool-proof, as an Oregon woman recently discovered.

Although anyone can expect to face charges if they're accused by police of driving drunk, the penalties are obviously much more severe in cases where someone else has died. Depending on the circumstances of the incident and a judge or jury's response to them, a motorist convicted in Oregon of driving under the influence of intoxicants in connection with a fatal crash could face a significant prison sentence.
