Will Maryland DUIs Ever Stop?

by: Mike Miller

How Many times does someone have to get arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) before they finally decide to quit drinking? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is “as many as it takes.”

Often times it may take a life-threatening incident, or worse a fatal accident. As reported in fox43.com.

William Ferguson, III was arrested for his eighth DUI offense in Tennessee after leading deputies on a chase through three counties. Of course, it happened just after midnight, Ferguson was stopped in his 1995 Ford Mustang. Instead of stopping the 40-year-old sped off and knocked the deputy to the ground. He was not injured.

Ferguson was arrested and charged him with reckless driving, three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault, driving on a revoked license, resisting arrest, and 8th offense DUI.

In a completely separate incident, A Baltimore man faces charges after he was pulled over twice in one night for DUI. The driver was 21-year old Harold Heard IV. He was originally pulled over and arrested around 12a.m. At around 2:20 a.m., Heard was released from the hospital and taken to a motel. It was the same officer who arrested him again. He blew a 0.14.

Two guys in dire need of a DUI class that I hope they take. Learn more about DUI classes here: http://onlinealcoholclass.com/Alcohol-Awareness-Classes/Maryland. They also should become permanent pedestrians.
