The day is regular as always, and you want some excitement. You get a call from a good pal inviting you out for the evening. The invitation is accepted, a quick shower, a moment in the closet, and you’re out the door. It’s been a long week, and you need time to unwind.

You arrive, get comfortable, have some drinks and enjoy yourself. Between the music, the laughter, and the fun, you lose count of the drinks. You don’t get out that much anyway; one more drink isn’t going to hurt right? Wrong!

According to the Texas Department of Transportation someone is hurt or killed in a crash involving alcohol every 20 minutes in the state of Texas. Don’t believe that all charges are the same in these cases. There are multiple charges related to DWI cases.

Not realizing your surroundings, or how much you have actually ingested, you begin your drive home. Music blasting, windows down and the crisp wind hitting your face, you try to sober up, seems the drinks snuck up on you. Just like that unmarked police car. As you look at the lights in your rearview mirror, you reach for your phone and push the MIDTOWN BAIL BONDS PANIC BOTTON!

The police officer approaches and you cooperate knowing help is on the way!
