Spring and hot tempers can lead to a need for criminal defense

It seems like people are always in a hurry in Tennessee, and this can cause tempers to flare. This can be particularly true when spring comes and with it the sports activities, prom season and a myriad of other things to make already hectic lives worse. When tempers flare, people may act, out and this can end in a need for a criminal defense.

In a recent incident at a car wash in Nashville, a woman got involved in a skirmish with another patron. The woman had reportedly broken into someone else's vehicle, and the resulting skirmish ensued. The policeman who responded to the call placed the woman in the back of his patrol car.

While he was conferring with the patron whose car was allegedly broken into, the woman in the back of the cruiser apparently succeeded in wiggling through the divider between the back and front seats and reportedly took off in the patrol car. Officers followed the car and claimed they got it to stop by throwing spike strips in its path. The woman was taken into custody and faces charges of motor vehicle theft, resisting arrest and vandalism.

Tempers are tricky things, and losing them can cause one to do things he or she wouldn't normally do. A person in Tennessee who is arrested and accused of committing a crime is innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law. The burden of proof is on the prosecution and must be supported by the evidence. A person facing criminal charges may wish to consult with a criminal defense attorney who can advise one of his or her legal rights and available options.
