The Commonwealth has two ways to prove Drunk Driving in Massachusetts. There is the under the influence theory, as well as the .08 or above per se theory. For instance, the government must show:
- Operation of a Motor Vehicle;
- On a Public Way;
- While Under the Influence of Alcohol; or
- With a Blood Alcohol Content of .08 or Above at the Time of Operation.
If there hasn’t been a breathalyzer test given, then the Commonwealth will proceed on the Under the Influence Theory. As a result, if you are charged with Drunk Driving, it is important to have a Drunk Driving Attorney who will help you understand the legal process. Contact Attorney Shane W.
