DWI Arrestee Steals Police Cruiser, Turns Himself In

According to, a New Hampshire man was recently stopped and arrested for allegedly driving under the influence. Due to an arm deformity, officers reportedly did not handcuff the man, and, consequently, the man managed to get into the driver’s side of the police cruiser and drive off. The 25-year-old Laconia resident soon abandoned the stolen police vehicle, and authorities were unable to locate him. Much to the Plymouth District Court’s surprise, the man turned himself in to authorities the following afternoon. He now faces escape charges in addition to possible reckless and criminal mischief charges; all of which are on top of his DWI charges.

This story is emblematic of behavior that should be avoided at all costs during a DWI arrest. Eluding police, stealing vehicles, and endangering the well-being of others in the process only make matters worse. An accused should not admit to any wrongdoing without consulting an experienced criminal defense attorney first.

For individuals being accused of driving while under the influence, it is important to remember that refusal to submit to a blood alcohol test will lead to a license suspension. However, an experienced New Hampshire DWI attorney can challenge that suspension.
