Preparing for New Year's Eve and Avoiding DUI Charges

New Year's Eve is one of the busiest times for DUI charges throughout the year, according to official sources.

Arizona Seeks to Stop Prison Reform With Data

Arizona prosecutors are apparently hoping to slow down or halt prison reform methods by offering data on the types of criminals currently incarcerated in the state's prisons, according to a recent report. The newly-issued report seeks to debunk claims by prison reform advocates that many of Arizona's 41,000 prisoners are low-level offenders who would be better served with probation or other penalties.

Tempe Man Killed in CVS Shootout

The victim, Errun Scroggins, 21, was shot during a fight in the parking lot. Witnesses said that there were two shooters, both of whom are currently wanted for questioning in the incident. Both suspects are identified as black males in their early 20s. Police are reviewing surveillance video to try to determine what happened.

DUIs and the Holidays--What You Need To Know

As the holiday season kicks into full swing, it is important to know certain facts about DUI arrests during this time of year. Knowing these facts may help you avoid a DUI arrest if you are pulled over for any reason during the period from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day.

How To Avoid Holiday DUIs

Many people think that those who are arrested for DUI know full well that they are drunk when they get behind the wheel and just choose to ignore the rights of others as well as their own safety. While it is true that some drivers are heavily intoxicated, the majority of DUIs occur with drivers who are at or near the .08 percent blood alcohol limit. What this means is that one or two drinks, in some cases, can be enough to convict you of DUI, and you may not even realize that you are over the limit when you are pulled over.

Samajie Grant Cited for Suspicion of Drugged Driving

The Arizona Wildcats may have clinched their Pac-12 South spot with Friday's win, but wide receiver Samajie Grant will be facing charges of driving under the influence of drugs after a late-night stop, according to recent reports. Grant will also face charges of minor in control of a motor vehicle with spirituous liquor and driving without a valid license.

AZ Legislator Arrested for DUI
