Three arrested on suspicion of DWI during Lafayette region sting operation

The Louisiana state police unit that patrols the Lafayette area conducted a 12-hour enforcement blitz on Sunday, July 21.

Between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., troopers issued over 200 citations. Although the focus of this campaign, called "Twenty-Five for Life," was to enforce seatbelt laws, troopers also arrested three people for DWI.

What you should take away from that information is that there is no place, time of day or day of the week in which law enforcement officers are not going to be very aggressive with drunk drivers. Drunk driving is not like speeding or having expired license tabs; an officer might be willing to look the other way in those circumstances, but that almost never happens with driving while intoxicated.

If you are ever arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, do not assume that your conviction is a done deal. Police have rules and policies that they must follow as they go about the process of arresting a person on suspicion of DWI and if they do not follow these procedures, there is a chance you might not have been fairly treated by the law.

An attorney who understands DWI laws and criminal defense can be of valuable assistance in such circumstances. Attorneys have to work with the facts as they exist, obviously, but they understand how laws apply to the realities of your situation. Furthermore, they are often able to provide their clients with a roadmap of how their cases are likely to proceed, which can really be reassuring if you are not familiar with the legal process.
