Operating under the influence of alcohol does not require one to be drunk or unconscious. Assuming there isn’t a breathalyzer test in a case, the Commonwealth must show:
- Operation of a Motor Vehicle;
- On a Public Way;
- While the Person was Under the Influence of Intoxicating Liquor.
Being under the influence of intoxicating liquor requries the consumption of enough alcohol to reduce one’s alertness, judgment and ability to respond promptly. The amount necessary varies from person to person. As a result, if you are charged with OUI, contact an OUI Lawyer who has the experience you need. Contact Attorney Shane W. Surrette at (774) 364-4605 or at [email protected] today.
