Aaron Berry, a 24 year old Detroit Lion cornerback, faces DUI charges after he drove his vehicle into parked cars and attempted to flee. He was arrested close to the scene. Full story here.
If convicted, the penalties for a first offense DUI are not more than 2 ½ years imprisonment in a house of correction, a license suspension of one year, and a $500-$5000 dollar fine. An alternative disposition is one year of probation, mandatory participation in a 16 week alcohol-drug education program that is paid for by the defendant, and suspension of license for 45-90 days (210 days for drivers under 21), with eligibility for a hardship license right away.
