New York man charged with two DWIs in one night

A New York man has been arrested for driving under the influence twice in one night. According to police officers, the man was driving at a local fast food restaurant when he hit the car in front of him in the drive-through line at around 1:00 a.m. At that time, police claim that the man's blood alcohol content level was more than three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent. They say his BAC level registered at 0.25 percent.

Five arrested in Buffalo on drug charges following traffic stops

Cars and trucks are commonly used to take people from place to place. However, they can sometimes be used for criminal activity. Therefore, police will look for all sorts of criminal activity even after pulling someone over for a simple traffic infraction.

Murder conviction overturned because of double jeopardy

The following hypothetical situation is a bit grim, but it illustrates an important point. Let's say you own a gun, and one day you are out walking with your weapon holstered. You see a few friends who haven't seen your gun yet, so you take it out to show it off. A few moments later, a shot rings out and a bystander is struck in the leg. You are charged with recklessly handling your weapon -- but since so many people were handling the weapon, the prosecution is unable to prove who fired the gun. You are acquitted of the crime.
