Driving under the influence of alcohol or any other substance that impairs your ability to safely operate and automobile is a serious misdemeanor in Mississippi. This offense can lead to fines, jail time, and the loss of your drivers license. The third (3rd) dui in a five (5) year period is a felony. We tell clients the best way not to get a second dui is to aggressively fight your first dui.
I saw an interesting article in the news recently. A man was arrested and given a dui for operating a reclining chair that had a motor. Yes, you read that right. This man had created a motorized recliner chair and was operating it on the public roads. There was not a lot of detail in the article. I assume he was somewhere around his house. Anyway, he ran into a car and the police were called the police gave him a dui. This should illustrate a good point to you: If you have alcohol on your breath and you are in any motorized vehicle or any contraption, you are going to jail.
