William C. Head, Atlanta DUI lawyer, has handled felony and misdemeanor cases in Athens, GA for 40 years. The criminal justice attorney was originally sworn in as a member of the Georgia Bar on June 10, 1976, at the Athens, Clarke County Courthouse in Athens, Georgia. Mr. Head has handled hundreds of alcohol and drugs cases, both misdemeanor and felony, in the courts of Athens, GA. The first 14 years of his legal practice were based in Athens, GA home of the UGA Bulldogs.

The number of underage drinking, or possession of alcohol under 21 cases in Athens-Clarke County, GA exceed the total possession of alcohol by a minor charges in Fulton County, GA, or Cobb County GA, or Gwinnett County GA or DeKalb County GA) and all of these counties boast populations of about 1 million residents. The year-round Athens’ population is about 125,000 residents.

Since a 2015 legislative change, MIP (minor in possession) cases are now being made by citation, and arresting and jailing the UGA student or visitor to campus at the Athens Clarke County jail. This WSB-TV news story in 2012 about the over aggressive arrests being made in Athens was instrumental in getting Georgia laws changed. The Georgia Legislature modified Georgia law to take away the right of Athens Police to arrest, absent some other crime being detected (such as possession of a false ID, obstruction of an officer, etc.)

After the change, local police (in 2016) have added federal agents to the law enforcement presence in downtown Athens, searching for underage drinking and possession of alcohol under 21 cases.

GA DUI Laws - Head injury can look like being drunk - Head Trauma mimics impaired driving symptoms - Atlanta DUI lawyer uses such medical information to fight DUI accident cases

Atlanta DUI Lawyer Bubba Head points out that head injuries can MIMIC drunkenness. His name is associated with being the top attorney in Atlanta for driving the influence cases, felony or misdemeanor.

Many DUI accident cases will be accused as felony cases, where an alleged DUI driver causes serious injury or death, and a felony vehicular homicide or a felony serious injury by vehicle cases is indicted.

Watch this CNN report, for a list of head trauma symptoms that could be misinterpreted as a drunk driver. No driver, after a car crash --- and especially one with air bag deployment --- should be asked to perform field sobriety tests. These voluntary exercises and eye test are NOT scientific tests, and have no correlation to driving impairment.

Mr. Head, the highest rated DUI lawyer in Atlanta, is part of a Georgia DUI law firm that fights DUI cases, misdemeanor and felony cases. If facing an Atlanta DUI, or a driving under the influence charge anywhere in Georgia, call DUI specialist William C. Head. His Georgia DUI lawyers are in Atlanta and 19 other cities across Georgia.

Beating the breath test - GA breathalyzer - Intoxilyzer 9000 device used in Georgia - breath alcohol test - Made my CMI of Owensboro, KY - alcohol breath test

Under Georgia DUI laws, police officers are taught to read the Georgia implied consent law notice, and get an answer whether the suspected drunk driver is willing to blow into an alcohol breathalyzer test. A similar process occurs in most cases after a DUI arrest (when alcohol is the suspected impairing substance). The Intoxilyzer 9000 is Georgia's only approved breath alcohol test, at this time.

Be aware that the Intoxilyzer 9000 --- the OFFICIAL test --- is NOT a portable breathalyzer. It is not a handheld breathalyzer. It is either on a desktop, counter top, or wired into a mobile BATmobile (Breath Alcohol Testing mobile van or truck. In GA, these handheld devices are 100% optional, and decling to blow is perfectly acceptable, since they are not the "implied consent test" in Georgia.

If your Georgia DUI lawyer lacks full breath test training, then possible DUI defenses to the alcohol breath test may not be raised, argued and ruled upon.

Call our DUI law firm for a FREE professional case evaluation, if you are facing drunk driving charges in GA. This is especially true if you will challenge your results from the breathalyzer. Hire a DUI lawyer who knows how to beat a breathalyzer. Our DUI law form can help: Call us at 1-888-DUI-HEAD [1-888-384-4323], DUI guru Bubba Head.

Is a DUI a felony? DUI Laws in GA - Call Bubba Head, top criminal lawyer among the attorneys in Atlanta GA

Because being taken to jail is so demeaning, many drivers with their first offense DUI arrests ask the question, "Is a DUI a felony?" Their treatment at a detention center clearly FEELS like they are a felon.

Lawyers in Atlanta, GA and over most of the rest of Georgia know the top criminal lawyer in such DUI felonies - Atlanta DUI lawyer Bubba Head. http://www.bubbahead.com/

The short answer is that a first offense DUI can be a felony, but only with aggravating factors, such as an accident with serious bodily injury to another person, or vehicular homicide or homicide by vehicle under GA law (called vehicular manslaughter in some other states). Also, child endangerment is a felony if the driver is DUI, in some states.

Facing a DUI felony is much more problematic, because most states have minimum, mandatory state prison time for a conviction of a felony DUI offense. For homicide by vehicle in GA, while DUI, 15 years per death or serous injury is the maximum punishment that the Judge can impose.

For a referral to a top DUI lawyer or DWI attorney anywhere in America, call DUI book author and 40-year veteran Atlanta DUI lawyer William C. "Bubba" Head, at 1-888-DUI-HEAD [ 1-888-384-4323], to connect your a knowledgeable and experienced felony DUI attorney. You don't need to decide is DUI is a felony, because your drunk driving lawyer can do that investigation.

Ambien
zolpidem
zaleplon
Sonata

sedative hypnotic
non-benzodiazepine hypnotic

A lot of Mr. Head's past clients took prescription drugs as prescribed or using them in combination with some alcohol, and then unknowingly getting behind the wheel. Mixing a prescription medication like zolpidem, the generic name for brand name Ambien, with alcohol can have a strong (exponential) synergistic effect and can cause you to black out while waiting at a traffic light.

Mr. Head has represented clients charged with DUI drugs who have experienced total amnesia about driving, and have no memory of how they got home.

Ambien's side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, weakness, and feeling “drugged” or light-headed.

DUI drugs cases exist where the person experienced unintentional driving after taking Zolpidem – they literally don’t remember getting into a car, starting it, and driving off. This has also been referred to as “sleep driving.” Our clients had no intent to drive, and do not remember being pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence of drugs.
