Charlotte DWI and Criminal Defense Attorney J. Bradley Smith of Arnold & Smith, PLLC answers the question “Is there more than one way for police to charge a person with DWI?”
A recent incident in New York reveals yet another way in which social media has made it easier for law enforcement authorities to track and convict criminals. Over the weekend, a man on Long Island decided to livestream his late night drunk driving, broadcasting his reckless conduct to the world on Periscope. According to authorities, they were able to use the live video feed to determine the suspect’s location and arrest him. Not only did the livestream facilitate the man’s arrest, but it also provided ample evidence for authorities seeking to gain a criminal conviction.
