Vince Young, a former NFL quarterback was arrested late Sunday night for driving under the influence of alcohol. The 32-year-old was arrested in Austin, Texas after being pulled over on Interstate 35. He was booked in a Travis County jail and his bond was set at $2,000. Young became a star football player when he played for the Texas Longhorns and later spent six seasons in the NFL. He is now employed at the University of Texas.
The crime of driving under the influence is committed by millions of individuals every year and results in thousands of auto accidents. Lawmakers realized the seriousness of operating a vehicle under the influence over a hundred years ago and established laws prohibiting the action. While individuals will face harsh criminal consequences for the crime, it is estimated that on average a driver commits DUI around 80 times prior to their first arrest. This creates a multitude of risks for DUI accidents. The senseless act of DUI often causes serious injuries that can alter the victim’s life, and even cause death.
