Trucker Currently Facing Reckless Homicide Charges Arrested for DUI

By Grant Law Office on May 10, 2013

WCIV News has reported that a truck driver, who was scheduled to be in court on a reckless homicide charge as the result of a fatal crash in January, was again arrested recently for a DUI in Georgia. Officials say the 35-year-old driver, Arnold Williams, was stopped on Interstate 20 after several people called the Newton County Sheriff’s Office complaining about a tractor-trailer swerving in and out of lanes. Police found that the driver was disoriented at the time.

Williams registered a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.22 percent on the Breathalyzer, which is close to three times the legal limit. He also failed field sobriety tests as he stumbled and swayed when standing on one foot. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Williams was facing homicide charges in connection with an incident where the truck he was driving hit a car on the I-526, killing a 27-year-old student at the Medical University of South Carolina.

The question in this case is why Williams was still allowed to operate a truck when he was already facing reckless homicide charges. Did he have a commercial driver’s license at the time he was pulled over the second time for the DUI? Why did his employer still allow him to operate the big rig? Alcohol and driving don’t mix. This is particularly true when it comes to large trucks such as tractor-trailers.

If a reckless driver has harmed you or a loved one, is important that you contact an experienced Atlanta truck accident attorney. Financial compensation may be available for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other losses that you may have suffered as the result of the crash. A skilled accident lawyer at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, PC will be able to hold the at-fault party accountable and ensure that you are justly compensated for your significant losses.
