The Celebrity DUI / DWI Round Up is a monthly recap that highlights recent celebrity DUI arrests.
While this article recaps the details of celebrity DUI arrests, the point of the article is not to simply point out the fact that celebrities have been arrested for driving under the influence.
Instead, the Celebrity DUI / DWI Round Up is intended to highlight the legal options available to celebrities (and other individuals) who have been arrested for intoxicated driving.
Too many drivers arrested on suspicion of DUI decide to just plead guilty and accept the full consequences of a conviction without considering alternative legal options. By working with an experienced DUI defense attorney, many individuals are able to obtain a favorable outcome after a DUI arrest.
At Levow DWI Law, our aggressive DUI defense strategies have successfully defended the rights of many celebrities and non-celebrity drivers. Additionally, we make it a priority to protect our clients’ right to privacy by keeping their names out of the news.
Celebrity DUI Arrests In March
This edition of the Celebrity DUI / DWI Round Up includes multiple celebs who were arrested for driving under the influence,including a college football star, the host of an MTV show, and an update on a celebrity DUI arrest that we covered in the October 2015 installment of the Celebrity DUI / DWI Round Up.
Dak Prescott Of Mississippi State Arrested For DUI
According to reports, the former quarterback for the Mississippi State Bulldogs was arrested for DUI on March 13th, 2016 after being pulled over in Starkville, MS.
Sources say that Dak Prescott was driving a Cadillac Escalade when he was pulled over by law enforcement at approximately 12:45 am and subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police were not able to obtain sufficient blood alcohol content test results in Prescott’s arrest, as the official police report stated that Prescott took two breath tests, but that neither were sufficient as evidence of intoxication.
Mr. Prescott could effectively challenge the charges against him. An experienced DUI defense attorney would demonstrate that prosecutors do not have sufficient chemical test results and that all of the other evidence is insufficient to prove the charges against Dak beyond a reasonable doubt.
Sports analysts are projecting Prescott to be drafted in the 3rd or 4th round of the 2016 NFL draft later this month.
Zero Kazama Of MTV’s “Silent Library” Arrested For DUI In Colorado
Zero Kazama, the host of the MTV show “Silent Library,” was recently arrested on charges of DUI after police officers found him at the scene of a car accident.
According to TMZ reports, the 33-year-old TV host was at Manitou Springs, CO at the town’s cliff dwellings museum, a popular tourist attraction, when he started yelling at tourists telling them that they were on sacred grounds and would be killed if they did not leave.
Employees of the historic site locked down the area and called police due to Kazama’s strange behavior, but when law enforcement arrived, Kazama was nowhere to be found.
Police officers in a nearby town found Kazama at the scene of a car accident later that night and arrested him for driving under the influence, as well as reckless driving and assault.
He was taken to a local jail where he spent the night and was released on $1,000 bail the following day.
Brandon Davis Negotiates Favorable DUI Plea Deal For Drunk Driving Arrest In October
Brandon Davis recently pled no contest to a DUI arrest made in October 2015. The heir to the Marvin Davis oil fortune was arrested on DUI charges after being involved in a serious car wreck in Los Angeles, CA.
Despite the fact that his blood alcohol content was nearly twice the legal limit when arrested for drunk driving, Davis was able to avoid jail time. Originally, Davis was facing up to 6 months of jail time, but according to TMZ reports he negotiated a plea deal in which he must complete 36 months of probation, 10 days of community service and 6 months of alcohol treatment.
