A University of Nevada football player was arrested and charged on the morning of July 28, according to news sources. Law enforcement authorities charged the junior student with drunk driving and driving the wrong way. He has been released from custody, and no court date has been announced. Nevertheless, he has been suspended from the Wolf Pack football team indefinitely.

Details of the player’s arrest have not been made public at this time, but it has been confirmed that he was pulled over and arrested before being booked into the county sheriff’s office around 3:30 a.m. He was charged with DUI above the legal limit, as well as driving the wrong way on a one-way road. It is unclear whether he posted bail or to whom he was released when police let him go.

Police did not make clear how they came to the determination that the man was drunk at the time he was pulled over. Generally speaking, a series of roadside sobriety tests are administered in the event that an officer has reasonable suspicion that a driver is intoxicated. A Breathalyzer test may also be administered. The report did not mention whether this was the case here.

Given the severity of a drunk driving charge and the influence it can have on a young person’s future, the burden of proof that falls on the state of Nevada is particularly heavy in this case. Prosecutors will have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the man was drunk while operating a motor vehicle. If proper steps were not taken at the scene to gather evidence without infringing on the man’s rights, the charge could be reduced or even dropped.

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.
