DUI Suspect Leads High Speed Chase Through Atlanta

Posted by Richard Lawson | Nov 24, 2019 | 0 Comments

According to reports out of Atlanta, a DUI suspect was clocked driving at 125 MPH on I-85 yesterday morning.

This led to a high speed police chase and the arrest of the driver.

As a Georgia DUI Lawyer, I will outline the law behind the offense of driving under the influence in Georgia.

DUI in Georgia

DUI in Georgia is defined by the Georgia Code in O.C.G.A. ยง40-6-391 as:

A person shall not drive or be in actual physical control of any moving vehicle while:

(1) Under the influence of alcohol to the extent that it is less safe for the person to drive;

(2) Under the influence of any drug to the extent that it is less safe for the person to drive;

(3) Under the intentional influence of any glue, aerosol, or other toxic vapor to the extent that it is less safe for the person to drive;

(4) Under the combined influence of any two or more of the substances specified in paragraphs (1) through (3) of this subsection to the extent that it is less safe for the person to drive;

(5) The person's alcohol concentration is 0.08 grams or more at any time within three hours after such driving or being in actual physical control from alcohol consumed before such driving or being in actual physical control ended; or

(6) Subject to the provisions of subsection (b) of this Code section, there is any amount of marijuana or a controlled substance, as defined in Code Section 16-13-21, present in the person's blood or urine, or both, including the metabolites and derivatives of each or both without regard to whether or not any alcohol is present in the person's breath or blood.
