Field sobriety tests are a way that the authorities check on the mental and physical condition of drivers on the roads. Drivers who cannot pass these tests aren't necessarily intoxicated or using drugs, but they could have issues occurring that make it dangerous to be behind the wheel.

Here's what to know about a search warrant

If the police suddenly arrive at your home, in person or at your vehicle stating that they have a search warrant, it means that they've obtained permission to search a location or person and to seize anything that is evidence of a crime. The search warrant itself will be addressed to you, as the person who is to be searched or whose property is to be searched.

There is never a good time to get a DWI, but it's particularly damaging when you're a newly elected official. When electing new officials, usually, any old news about them is dug up to discuss all the negatives of their personalities or backgrounds. Sometimes, that's not enough to prevent an elected official from making a mistake, though, like in this case of a man who fought for his place as the mayor of Sharpsburg, N.C.

This is a felony crime and one that is taken more seriously than simple drug possession. Why? It implies that you're spreading the use of illegal substances around the country, which makes more work for the authorities and hurts individuals.
