On June 22nd, Michael Goss was arrested for a DUI after crashing his 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck into a parked Metro Police car. The two officers in the patrol car were rushed to UMC Hospital and Goss was arrested after failing a sobriety test. Goss failed to reduce speed before hitting the police car, and now he is facing the consequences.
In a large and lively city such as Las Vegas, metro police will always be on the lookout for drunk drivers. A lot of attention is given to drivers under the influence, and more checkpoints are being added all over the City and surrounding areas.
In the first 90 days of 2012, police counted 175 drug or alcohol-related violations. Police are cracking down on drunk driving. Checkpoints will be especially common on holidays like the 4th of July, so be extra careful driving the streets.
Drinking and driving is extremely hazardous to both yourself and those around you. Once arrested, very serious penalties can occur, from fines to a revoked license or even jail time. Using a designated driver can help save lives and prevent crimes.
