So you have a few drinks with some friends to celebrate your new found freedom at the bar around the corner from your house. When you leave you’re not worried, a couple lights and your home for the night. You get in the car and drive home, and you don’t realize your swerving just a bit. That’s when it happens, the lights behind you and the familiar scene, license and registration, hands on the wheel, etc. You just got your Fourth Offense DUI.
