A young man in Massachusetts is in jail after allegedly getting in a fight with police officers while he had a gun. It does not appear that anyone was shot.
In order to arrest someone on suspicion of drunk driving, police must have probable cause. This means that they can't just have a hunch that you are intoxicated. They must gather sufficient evidence to arrest you.
When facing criminal accusations, you may find yourself focusing only on the legal consequences of a conviction. These could include fines and jail time. This naturally leads you to assume that, when you have done your time, the conviction will cease to be a part of your life.
