Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
People are arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in communities throughout Tarrant County and Parker County every single night. This crime is commonly referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) in many other parts of the country. In Texas, a DWI charge can have stiff consequences for an alleged offender.
While being pulled over and taken into custody can be an extremely humbling experience, it is important to remember that an arrest for drunk driving is never an automatic conviction. Any police error committed from the moment a motorist is asked to stop to the time an alleged offender is released from custody can result in criminal charges being significantly reduced or possibly even dismissed entirely.
