Here’s a bit of free legal advice.
If the police haul you in on suspicion of driving under the influence, it is generally a good idea to hire a lawyer and fight as best you can. However, if the vehicle you were cruising around in when the police hauled you in on suspicion of driving under the influence wason fire at the time and this did not appear to bother you,you might as well just give up, because you’re guilty until proven completely nuts.
Southwest Regional Police reported they and the Belle Vernon Volunteer Fire Department were called to the 100 block of Main Street at 12:40 a.m. for a vehicle fire. En route, firefighters Joel Davis and Brent Cratty spotted the 1993 Ford Econoline being driven on Main Street while ablaze.
Police said Davis was able to get the driver’s attention near the Interstate 70 ramp.
While firefighters extinguished the fire, police officers questioned and subsequently arrested Carl Franklin Miller Jr., 47, of 542 Highland Ave. on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Miller, who for the sake of name related comedy it should be noted lives in the town of North Charleroi, was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered during the ordeal, but I guess wasn’t badly hurt as he was treated and released.
