Each month, our legal team publishes a post about celebrities who have been arrested for a DWI/DUI, in order to show that even the famous and powerful will suffer the consequences without an aggressive legal defense.
Vince Young, a former NFL quarterback, was pulled over and charged with his second DWI in Fort Bend. Since being released on bail, he has tweeted about the incident, saying “I deeply apologize for letting my family, my friends, and my fans down”. He then went on to promise he would take whatever steps necessary to ensure this never happened again.
Young’s first DWI was in 2016 in Austin, Texas. At that time, officers noted that his car was weaving across lanes on the highway. When he was pulled over, he refused to take a field sobriety test. He pled no contest to the charges and was sentenced to 18 months probation.
The L.A. District Attorney has officially filed charges against Presley Gerber, who is Cindy Crawford’s 19-year-old son.
The young model was arrested on December 30th, 2018 after officers pulled him over for speeding in his Tesla. According to the police reports, Gerber absolutely “reeked” of alcohol. The officers administered a field sobriety test which Gerber reportedly failed.
His attorney has made a statement saying that Gerber takes the arrest and subsequent charges very seriously.
In the summer of 2018, former Giants player Barry Cofield found himself in hot water.
The football star was found by officers at an intersection, passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle. When they attempted to wake him, he took off swerving and weaving through traffic until he ultimately hit a police car that had been used to block his path.
When officers searched his person and car, they discovered that he smelled of alcohol and also found heroin. He was charged with heroin possession, assaulting an officer, DUI, resisting arrest and fleeing from police.
However, likely due to the fact that he worked closely with an experienced legal team, he will face no jail time. Instead, he will be placed on a 12-month probation and a 6-month suspension of his license after accepting a plea deal.
