A Canadian man was arrested and placed into the back of a patrol car. It is clear that he had been drinking. As the man was being transported to the police station, he began singing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." The man's entire performance was caught on the patrol car's video and unfortunately for this man, it is now on You Tube for the world to see. While we do not know why this man was arrested, it seems likely that alcohol was a factor.
A common alcohol-related crime is OWI, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. A DUI or OWI conviction can have numerous negative consequences. Of course, imprisonment is one of the most serious consequences. However, even losing your driver's license for an extended period of time can cause economic hardship and a great deal of stress. Relying upon friends, family members, and public transportation to get to and from work or school is not only a hassle, but you may not be able to get where you need to go on time. You may also face fines, community service and probation for a conviction. Loss of employment is yet another potential side effect.
