Man likely working on criminal defense due to serious charges

| Mar 26, 2019 | Criminal Defense

What may seem like a fun idea at first could easily take a negative turn. This trouble could especially result if the activity is not entirely legal. Of course, a legal mess could become even more complicated if the endeavor results in someone suffering serious injuries. As a result, a person could face charges and need a criminal defense.

Reports indicated that one man in Tennessee was taken into custody after participating in a purportedly illegal activity. Apparently, the man was driving an ATV on a busy road along with approximately 100 other people on ATVs, dirt bikes and four-wheelers. While the individuals took the off-road vehicles onto the streets, the man reportedly hit a police officer who was trying to stop one of the vehicles. The officer was dragged by the ATV and suffered injuries as a result.

The incident also resulted in the man driving that ATV receiving multiple criminal charges. Among those charges were reckless endangerment, evading arrest, aggravated assault on a police officer and leaving the scene of a personal injury incident. At the time of the report, the man was still in custody on a $50,000 bond.

While the man may have thought he was going out for some raucous fun, he now faces a much more serious situation. The allegations brought against him could result in dire consequences if he is convicted. Fortunately, before a conviction could take place, he has the right to create and present a criminal defense in Tennessee court. Understanding his legal options may prove invaluable to him at this time.
