Safety on St. Patricks Day

St Patrick’s Day is a widely celebrated holiday in California. The holiday is most often celebrated by heavy drinking. Irish pubs and bars become packed with patrons looking to drink the night away. People get rowdy, there are arguments, fights, and inevitably there are people that drive after having too many drinks.

There are many safe choices that you can make, if you are deciding to go out drinking on St. Patrick’s day in California. First, make sure you have a safe ride to and from wherever you may be going. Plan for a designated driver, or utilize taxi’s and ride-sharing services such as Uber or Lyft. Second, make sure you go to a place that you are familiar with, and that is not known for violent incidents. Some individuals start fights for no apparent reason, and you definitely want to avoid a place where this frequently occurs. Finally, know your limits. If you start to feel intoxicated, stop drinking and switch to water. The chance that you will encounter a bad situation increases the more that you have been drinking.

We all know that alcohol can make you do things that you would not otherwise do sober. You may end up getting in an argument that escalates into a situation where there is law enforcement intervention. This could possibly lead to criminal charges. In other circumstances, you may think that you did not consume as much alcohol as your really did, and crossed the legal limit allowable to drive. This is a common theme of many that are charged with DUI in California.

If you find yourself in one of the situations above and you are facing charges of breaching the peace, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, or driving under the influence, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney that is experienced and knowledgeable. All of these charges could result in having to serve time in jail, loss of employment, damage to your reputation, and other collateral consequences that convictions carry.

A good criminal defense attorney will fight to keep you out of jail so that you can focus on rebuilding your life.
