Board of Selectmen Chairman Arrested on DUI Charge

The Chairman of the Board of Selectmen in Westminster was arrested this past weekend in Jaffrey, New Hampshire for driving while intoxicated. According to an article on Telegram.com, the 29-year-old man was arrested Friday, March 5, 2010, after he lost control of his Chevrolet pickup truck and struck a tree before ultimately crashing into a snowbank.

Police received an anonymous call reporting a single-car crash and arrived at the scene around 6:40 p.m. The driver then took a Breathalyzer test, blowing a .12. The legal Blood Alcohol Content limit for driving in New Hampshire is .08. Police proceeded to the station where the chairman was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

DUI and DWI offenses in the state of New Hampshire can lead to devastating consequences. Oftentimes, police will confiscate the license of the arrested person and issue a notice for a 30-day suspension, which could be extended, pending a court decision. Fortunately, there is a way for those accused of DWI to get help. What many people do not realize is that breathalyzers and field sobriety tests are not always accurate, and many arresting officers are unfamiliar with proper procedures or fail to follow directions when using such devices.

Laws and regulations for driving under the influence of alcohol have changed significantly over the past few years. If you have been charged with a DUI or DWI, an experienced New Hampshire criminal defense attorney can help you navigate the legal system and achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
