How you can be convicted of Driving under the Influence (DUI) of something having nothing to do with alcohol or drugs, California DUI attorneys implore?
Can you really be in such a state of mind after listening and/or dancing to drum and bass music that it affects you in an intoxicating way, California drunk driving lawyers are wondering?
Driving erratically & recklessly does not help, as in running lots of red lights and almost hitting another vehicle. He may have been intoxicated by that bad music but he irritated others suggested the Judge.
The fast electronic music of "drum & bass" caused the United Kingdom's Aaron Cogley to drive like that and in a hurry. How could it be so effective that there is is an unwritten link between Driving & Drum & Bass Music? Think of Top Gear or Grand Theft Auto music. The judge sentenced him as he called it Driving Under the Intoxicating effects of drum & bass. He lost his driver's license for 1 year and must pass a test before he gets it back.
DUI police thought it was on something like a controlled substance or was drunk. He did not test positive and told the cops he was listening to drum and bass and was in a hurry, the DUI lawyer prosecutor said in Bristol court.
His criminal defense attorney explained his client was stupid and was carried away due to the intoxicating effects of drum and bass music. Wow, what a defense. (Or a stupid admission.) Yahoo!
