This past weekend Los Angeles Rams Troy Hill, a cornerback for the NFL football team, was arrested after an automobile crash on Saturday morning on suspicion of DUI (driving under the influence).
Rich Hammond from PressTelegram.com reports, “Authorities said Hill, 25, was driving on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley when his Mercedes rear-ended a truck. Hill reportedly failed a field sobriety test and was arrested by the California Highway Patrol at 8:15 a.m.” 
The crash scene was in Encino, California. “The California Highway Patrol received a report that a Mercedes Benz and a big rig had crashed on the westbound 101 Freeway west of Haskell Avenue just before 8 a.m., according to the CHP,” reports Jessica Rice for NBC. 
Of the Troy Hill arrest, Darren Kavinoky, founding attorney of 1.800.NoCuffs, explains, “Anytime police smell alcohol that they believe is coming from the driver, a DUI investigation is certain to follow. It doesn’t matter if it’s eight in the morning, eight at night, or anywhere in between.”
Understanding DUI Evidence
Kavinoky adds, “There are four major categories of evidence that police and prosecutors will always look to when evaluating a potential DUI prosecution. These include driving pattern, physical signs and symptoms, field sobriety test performance, and chemical test results (The refusal to submit to a post – arrest chemical test, which can be introduced as consciousness of guilt.)” See the Infographic below.
The holidays bring celebrations translating to an increase of DUI checkpoints and Thanksgiving weekend arrests for DUI on the roads. “A good criminal defense attorney,” says Kavinoky, “especially one who knows the junk science frequently associated with a DUI arrests, may be the best and most valuable player for the Rams this season!”
