With all of the Angels games taking place in Anaheim this week, Anaheim has been in full party mode. Most fans love to tailgate before the game, drink during the game, party after the game, and then drive home. Of course, this leads to many driving under the influence charges for the fans. Because of this, Anaheim Police have decided to step up patrolling the area since they recently received an anti-DUI grant from the state to pay for saturation police and DUI checkpoints. Police are constantly reminding Angels fans about the ill fate of rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart and his two friends who were killed by a suspected drunk driver earlier this year. Police want to remind the fans to drink responsibly and avoid the roads if you have been drinking.
It is so unfortunate that Nick Adenhart was killed by a drunk driver and could not see how far the Angels got in the playoffs. It is a harsh reality that drunk drivers are out on the streets everyday and are killing and hurting themselves and others. Police remind drivers to report drunk drivers since it is an emergency that requires police assistance right away. Whether you live in Santa Ana, Brea or Laguna Niguel, if you are charged with a DUI, call an experienced DUI defense attorney right away.
