While some may find it difficult to believe, authorities can arrest someone on suspicion of driving under the influence while that person is sleeping in a parked car. In Tempe and other cities in Arizona, especially around colleges and universities like Arizona State University, this type of arrest is more common than most imagine.
In Arizona, very similar cases of intoxicated individuals sleeping in parked cars can have drastically different outcomes. In some cases, individuals have escaped DUI convictions when their attorneys clearly demonstrated that they did not intend to drive while under the influence, which led to their choice to pull off the road to sleep. In other cases, however, prosecutors have managed to secure DUI convictions.
