On May 21, a Virginia man entered a guilty plea to charges of drunk driving and inflicting injury on someone as a result of driving while impaired. The charges were related to a car accident that occurred in Shenandoah County on Nov. 29, 2012 at approximately 11:36 p.m. According to reports, the 23-year-old man crossed the centerline while driving and crashed head-on into another car driven by a woman. The man's blood-alcohol was reportedly .18 when it was tested at Shenandoah Memorial Hospital after the accident.
Some people choose to drink alcohol to try to forget about a difficult life. For a petty officer in the Navy, a night of drinking turned fatal. Now, the 29-year-old man is facing involuntary manslaughter and DUI second offense charges for the Virginia accident.
The lure to drugs is a very tough opponent for some people. When this pull gets to be very strong, the person using the drugs might start doing things they wouldn't do if they weren't being pulled by the drugs. For some people, making drugs on their own might be one of those actions since this is a way they can get access to the drugs without depending on others for access. The recent discovery of a methamphetamine lab now has two men facing charges related to the discovery.
When emotions run high, people may do things that they wouldn't normally do. A recent incident that involves an National Football League player who formerly played for Virginia Tech shows just how quickly things can go downhill.
Some reported trash talk between college football players last year has led to one of the young men pleading guilty to assault. The incident occurred last November between a Virginia State University running back and a quarterback for Winston-Salem State University while the two were in the restroom during an awards luncheon at WSSU.
