Beer gut brewing: The strange mystery of auto-brewery syndrome

Getting pulled over by an officer on suspicion of drunk driving can be a frightening - as well as embarrassing - situation, especially if you were sure you were good to drive. But what if you haven't had a drop of alcohol all day and are still pulled over by police for a DUI/DWI? What's worse, you're also showing all of the signs of intoxication and are thus arrested as a result.

The psychology behind repeat DUI offenses

When Colorado lawmakers made fourth-time DUIs a felony offense last year, many people wondered if this was the answer to reducing the number of drunk driving accidents in the state. Many are hopeful it will, but is stricter legislation really the most effective deterrent for repeat offenders?

Three ways a felony DUI conviction will impact your rights

If you are a repeat DUI offender, you could face felony charges under Colorado's new law. Specifically, if it is your fourth offense, you could be convicted of a Class 4 felony. This can result in up to six years in prison, up to $500,000 in fines and a felony conviction on your criminal record.

Would you know what to do if you got pulled over for DUI?

Imagine driving away from the bar - or the game, or anywhere you might have a drink or two - and seeing flashing lights in your rearview mirror. Would you be able to think critically and plan your best course of action? Or would you be like most people and panic, inadvertently doing or saying something that ended up hurting your case?

A felony DUI law may come to Colorado

Drunk drivers in Colorado often have no licenses

Recent reports indicate that many people who are arrested for drunk driving also do not have valid driver's licenses. When looking at data spanning just the previous two years, it was found that about 25 percent of the drivers who were arrested for DUI charges fell into this category. In fact, many of these drivers had gotten a DUI in the past, which is why they had been stripped on their licenses.

Advice for Colorado residents facing DUI charges

Individuals who are arrested for DUI are often ill-prepared to deal with the possible fallout. A DUI arrest and subsequent conviction can be costly in many ways and potentially result in an individual losing the respect of family members and friends as well as his or her drivers' license. What's more, a DUI conviction may result in the loss of employment, housing and, in some cases, one's very freedom. Regardless of the circumstances of a DUI case, there are a number of things those facing these types of serious criminal charges should do and keep in mind.
