Driver in Nevada accused of drunk driving

A driver accused of precipitating a fatal bus crash in Las Vegas is facing serious charges, according to local news sources. The 25-year-old man is facing drunk driving charges including three for DUI causing severe bodily harm and an additional two for DUI causing death. In Nevada, the man could face up to 100 years in prison if found guilty of these charges. 

The crash took place on Sept. 5, in downtown Las Vegas. According to the accident report, the man allegedly sped through a red light in a sports car, striking a tour bus with enough force to overturn it and set it on fire. The vehicle also spun away and struck a third car. The 25-year-old suffered moderate injuries in the crash. 

Possession charges filed against ex Nevada beauty queen

A former beauty queen with a checkered past has been charged again, according to local sources. The 31-year-old woman, who was crowned Miss Nevada 2007 before having her title revoked in the midst of a scandal, has been charged with drug possession. She was arrested on Sept. 2 after being pulled over with her boyfriend by Nevada authorities. So far no court date has been announced. 

The woman, who lost her title in Dec. 2006 after compromising photos of her were leaked to the Miss USA governing body, has been charged in the past for the possession and sale of drugs. This time, her boyfriend was pulled over by Las Vegas police after allegedly failing to properly use a turn signal. Once police had pulled over the vehicle, they apparently initiated a search for reasons unknown. 

Attempted murder suspect in Nevada negotiating plea bargain

A 59-year-old man who reportedly exchanged gunfire with his brother back in January is facing serious charges and is considering a plea bargain, according to local news. The man has been charged with attempted murder as well as several other charges related to the incident in which a woman was apparently shot during a brief fire fight between the two brothers. Nevada authorities are reportedly offering the man a plea bargain, though he has currently pleaded not guilty to all charges. 

According to the report filed by police, a domestic incident prompted a police response. They found the 59-year-old man with at least one gunshot wound to the face and an unidentified woman suffering upper torso gunshot wounds.

A 31-year-old out of state man is facing serious charges after being arrested by local police, sources have said. The man was charged with drunk driving by Nevada police after being pulled over on Interstate 80 on Aug. 2. No court date was reported concerning this case. 

According to the report released by Nevada police in Elko County, the man was pulled over on I-80 around 10 miles west of Wells for unspecified reasons. According to the officer on the scene, there were four passengers in the vehicle. One of these passengers was a child, aged 6, who was apparently not wearing a seat belt at the time of the traffic stop. 

Man faces criminal law charges in Nevada

A man accused of damaging a fountain as well as other property is facing serious charges, sources have said. According to criminal law in Nevada, damaging property can be upgraded to a felony offense if the damage is sufficient, which was apparently the case here. The man was described as being "distraught" during the encounter with police, and he is currently in custody being held on bail of $5,000. 

The bizarre encounter allegedly began when police were called to deal with a man who apparently jumped into the man-made lake surrounding Bellagio Fountains sometime on the evening of July 23. Apparently the 39-year-old man was spotted by bystanders who alerted bicycle units of the Metro police. The officers were soon joined by other police units as well as local firefighters and resort security in an attempt to extricate the man from the lake.

A fatal accident involving five vehicles is being attributed to a driver who police believe may have been drunk at the time of the crash. Nevada authorities have charged the man with drunk driving after two people were killed on July 12. So far, no court date has been formally announced. 

The accident record says the 26-year-old man was traveling on Lamb near Interstate 15 at an unsafe rate of speed when the accident occurred. The man reportedly struck car after car with his pickup truck after driving through two red lights. When his vehicle finally came to rest, he was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries described as critical. 

Domestic violence: What to do when mistakes are made in your case

Emotions can run high when arguing with a loved one. Whether you are a parent who is trying to come to some sort of an agreement with your teenage son, or you are frustrated and saddened by the recent actions of your partner, it is not unusual for heated conversations to occur in a household.

Real problems can start though -- as in criminal charges -- when these conversations lead to domestic violence accusations. Whether facing misdemeanor or felony charges, both have potential negative consequences on a person's life.

Bicyclist killed in alleged drunk driving accident in Nevada

A bicyclist is tragically dead following a serious accident in Las Vegas. Nevada police responded to the accident, which is being attributed to alleged drunk driving on the part of the driver involved. The collision occurred shortly after 11:30 on the night of June 26. The driver in question has been charged with DUI as well as hit and run. 

The accident report is somewhat unclear. It has been confirmed that the vehicle involved struck a bicyclist at an intersection. The 40-year-old driver involved in the crash apparently fled the scene initially before turning himself in to police some time later. 

Nevada man charged with drunk driving

A man accused of precipitating two separate crashes is facing serious charges, according to local law enforcement. Nevada authorities have charged the man with drunk driving in connection to a fatal hit-and-run involving a bicyclist, but they have also alleged that he was involved in at least one other crash on the same evening. The man was scheduled to appear in court on June 10. 

According to the accident report, the fatal crash occurred around 11:30 p.m. on June 4. A 67-year-old bicyclist was heading eastbound when he was allegedly hit by the driver in question, who then apparently drove off. The bicyclist died of his injuries. 

DUI charges filed in Nevada against rapper Flavor Flav

Noted rapper and former Public Enemy hype man Flavor Flav was arrested early on the morning of May 21, according to local law enforcement. Flav, whose real name is William Drayton, stands accused of DUI as well as misdemeanor possession of marijuana. As of this report, it is unclear if he is still in Nevada police custody. 

Police reports indicate the rapper was pulled over for allegedly speeding on Interstate 15. Upon pulling his car to the side, the attending officers say they arrested him for driving under the influence. No mention of a roadside sobriety test was made in the report. Police also say they found marijuana in Drayton's possession, though the details regarding that claim were not further  reported. 

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
