How can someone be arrested for DWI if they were not driving the vehicle?
My son and friends went to a local 7-11. The friend was driving because my son had been drinking. My son went inside to get water and skittles and came out to find the car gone. He figured his friends were playing a joke on him and started walking toward the friends house. He came upon my car sitting on a lawn and officers observing the damage. When asked if the car was his, he replied yes. He began telling the officers that he thought his friend had the car. He was then arrested for aggravated DWI. I thought our legal system was supposed to maintain innocence until proven guilty. His first court date produced info that the prosecution wants 20 days in jail and 3 years probation. this is his first encounter with the legal system. How can this be if he was not driving the car?
