A Denver man with past drunk driving related charges was arrested early last month during an investigation of a vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.

Traffic violations can sometimes require a person to appear in court. If they have repeated violations in Colorado, a person might face significant fines, loss of their driver's license or other punishments. It is most important that people don't ignore violations that they are aware of. Speaking with an experienced criminal defense attorney might be a wise decision for people facing violations.
When someone is pulled over for speeding, they might think they will just apologize, accept responsiblity and the police officer might be kind enough to let the person off with a warning. Sometimes, people are pulled over, and to their surprise they are arrested. This could be for numerous reasons, and it might be wise for a person in this situation to speak with an experienced Denver criminal defense attorney.
When a person is pulled over by a police officer, they would most likely not expect to have a Taser used on them and then arrested. However, many cities are evaluating their policies regarding Taser use, and a new report has found that a large number of deaths related to Taser use could have been avoided.
A traffic stop in another state has worked its way up to the Supreme Court of the United States. This case involved two men who were arrested during a traffic stop. Another driver on the road called 911 to report that the two were in a truck that was reportedly driving erratically. Police pulled the men over without ever seeing the erratic driving that was described to 911 operators, and the men were arrested on drug charges after officers claimed they smelled marijuana.
Traffic tickets can result in a major headache. They can be really inconvenient when you are heading to or from work, but they can become a big legal hassle if they aren't addressed. After someone is pulled over, police might ask them questions right from the start. They could be trying to get a person to admit to why they were pulled over or admit to the speed they might have been going when they passed a police officer scanning cars.
When someone is arrested, they might not even understand what they did wrong. While police or prosecutors might tell them what charges they are facing, they might not give much more detail as the government develops a case against the person.
