Having the spent the last decade plus practicing out of South Florida, Russian speaking lawyer, Steven Veinger, Esq. is no stranger to the wild and often, outlandish news that comes out the Florida – a state where many feel that almost anything is possible! considered to be the best criminal attorney Miami has to offer, Mr. Veinger has represented dozens of clients involved in DUI cases, and the one commonality they all shared, was they were driving a car. While that might seem completely redundant and warrant a resounding “DUH!” – in a state like Florida, where anything is possible, apparently, this doesn’t always have to be the case! In fact, according to a colleague, Russian speaking lawyer, Steven Veinger recently found out that DUI’s are possible in the state of Florida without a car being in sight! Here are a few of the most interesting cases of individuals being charged with a DUI without having been in a car, by the best criminal attorney Miami has practicing, Mr. Steven Veinger, Esq.
· The Man on a Lawnmower
This has to be one of the most hilarious incidents to come out of a state known for its comic criminals. in the end of 2017, a Florida man in Port St. Lucie, was arrested and charged with a DUI while riding his lawn mower. According to the police officers on the scene, the man was riding his law mower extremely erratically on a regular road, while simultaneously carrying a case of beer. When he was approached by the police, his BAC, was three-times the legal limit! As the best criminal attorney Miami has in practice, Mr. Veinger believes it almost impossible to get someone off, when they blow 3x the legal limit – especially while also carrying a case of beer.
· Riding a Horse
Ironically, during the same month of 2017 as the man on the lawn mower, a woman in Polk County was riding a horse on the highway when other motorists called the police. She ended up being stopped and arrested, after blowing double the BAC limit.
While this seems strange stopping a man in a wheelchair, the circumstances definitely lead to this arrest. In 2015, a man in Palm Bay was arrested for a DUI in a motorized wheelchair, after he was approached for blocking several lanes of traffic on a bridge. As cops approached, they could smell the alcohol on his breathed. The individual may not have spoken English according to some – Russian speaking lawyer, Steven Veinger, believes this could be used in court as a partial defense, however the sheer violation of civil safety as well as your own could prove to be an issue.
· Golf Cart
Again, in 2015 a man was arrested and charged with a DUI for driving a gold cart. On-lookers were worried and alerted the police, believing the man to be drunk. When they tried to pull him over however, he tried to outrun them and was finally caught a few minutes after and charged with a DUI.
