California DUI suspects run away from California Drunk Driving police

San Diego California DUI criminal defense attorneys report 2 new drunk driving suspects attempt to flee after being stopped and investigated for possible DUI, at www.SanDiegoDrunkDrivingAttorney.net/articles.

A man was arrested for California DUI - driving under the influence early this morning in Marin County after a brief chase, according to the California Highway Patrol California DUI liason officer.

The vehicle was reported at about 1:45 a.m. to be driving erratically away from Stinson Beach on Panoramic Highway, according to California DUI lawyers. The CHP intercepted the vehicle, which did not immediately stop when contacted by California DUI officers.

Another man was arrested Saturday morning on suspicion of California DUI - driving under the influence after crashing and hiding in the wilderness.

Joshua Bounds, 32 years old of Oregon, was driving a 1985 BMW southbound on state Route 199 near mile marker 9.66 at 7:40 a.m., with passenger Tina Falleur, of Rogue River, Ore., seated in the right front seat, the California Highway Patrol stated in a news release. As Bounds came around a corner, he lost control of the vehicle and went off the west edge of Route 199, partially overturning onto the driver’s side, California DUI criminal attorneys stated.

Upon hearing the police approach, Bounds and Falleur, 41, fled into the woods, hiding among the trees and brush, the CHP stated. They were nowhere to be found when the CHP arrived, but a CHP officer was pointed in the direction of the brush and heavily forested hill where the suspects were last seen by U.S. Forest Service personnel, California DUI defense lawyers stated. The officer searched for the two suspects and, with a coordinated effort from another CHP officer, detained the suspects, who were taken out of the forest area.

Upon further investigation, it was discovered that Bounds was California DUI - driving while under the influence of alcohol, the CHP stated. He was subsequently arrested on suspicion of California DUI and taken to the Del Norte County jail pending charges of California DUI, hit-and-run and driving with a suspended license.
