‘Tis the season for celebrations in Arizona and across the nation. People everywhere will be enjoying a cocktail at their employer’s holiday parties, sipping eggnog with their families, and popping the cork off a bottle of champagne at New Year’s. However, this also means that police in Arizona will be on high alert for those they think are driving under the influence.
Sometimes, even innocent people are caught in the net of police attempting to apprehend drunk drivers. This can be a very confusing and frightening situation. People may be afraid that they will lose their driver’s license, that they will incur fines or that they might even be sent to jail.
