California man arrested for driving a tour bus while drunk

The authorities arrested a California man for allegedly driving a San Francisco tour bus while he was intoxicated. The San Bruno resident now faces criminal charges, including DUI. The 60-year-old man was driving a San Francisco Deluxe Tour Bus when the authorities arrested him. The arrest occurred at approximately 1:15 p.m. near Stockton and Post streets in San Francisco. Officials from the San Francisco Deluxe Tour Bus company have not made a statement about the arrest of the bus driver.

The tour bus driver was charged with DUI crimes, including driving the bus under the influence of alcohol and motoring with a blood alcohol content level of .08 or greater, which is above the legal limit. The bus driver also violated the law prohibiting individuals from having an open container of alcohol in public. The bus driver will be arraigned in San Francisco Superior Court.

After his arraignment, the accused may have to defend himself against the alcohol-related charges in criminal court. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help an individual, like the tour bus driver, who is facing drunk driving charges.

An attorney may be able to discuss the arrest and the particulars of the case with their client. If the authorities did not legally arrest an individual, an attorney may be able to argue that the court should dismiss the criminal charges. An attorney may also be able to defend a driver during a criminal trial. If a client does not want to go through the process of a trial, a criminal defense attorney may be able to enter into a negotiation regarding a plea bargain with the prosecutor.
