Reno Cases of DUI & Drugs

The Rise in Drug Intoxication Arrests in Reno

No field of criminal prosecutions is evolving faster than that of drugged driving. The first category of drugged driving refers to operating a vehicle with a prohibited amount of an illegal substance such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, meth and others. The second category has seen a dramatic increase, and refers to operating a vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance, or prescription medication such as pain killers, anti-anxiety medicine, anti-depressants, sedatives, muscle relaxers and many others. If you have been charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence of illegal or prescription drugs, talk to a Reno DUI attorney who can see your defense to victory in court.

In the past, DUI offenses related mainly to the recreational use of alcohol. As Reno sees an increased emphasis on enforcement of drug-related DUI’s, typical motorists simply aren’t aware that taking doctor-prescribed medications could end in their arrest and possible conviction for driving while under the influence of drugs.

Defending Charges of DUI in Drug Intoxication Cases

A Drug DUI charge is not as common an occurrence as driving under the influence of alcohol, but instances of the crime have definitely increased in recent years. Since this is still a relatively new and uncharted area of the law, there are few guidelines for motorists to follow, and fewer still for police officers who bear the responsibility of making a proper determination of impairment in anticipation of a DUI drug arrest. A lawyer since 1986, Walter Fey has a built solid foundation of knowledge and experience in his defense of drug-impaired drivers in a court of law.
