In yet another run-in with the law, singer Chris Brown made headlines for an arrest in Paris, France, on suspicion of rape. Details are still sparse. Brown and two others (including a bodyguard) had apparently met the 24-year-old accuser at a Parisian nightclub. She accompanied them to the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where the alleged incident took place. Brown was briefly detained, then released with no charges filed. The investigation is still ongoing.
People don't usually plan to drive while intoxicated, but things change once they start drinking. They may have a false sense of self, believing, with confidence, that they can drive even though they've been drinking. They could forget that they asked for a ride home and opt to drive themselves. In many cases, people end up behind the wheel who would never choose to drive drunk if making the decision while sober.
Drunk driving is something seen on the roads almost every day throughout the country. People may make the mistake of thinking that they're sober enough to drive and get behind the wheel. When they do so, they're putting their lives, and the lives of others, in danger.
When the police perform a raid on a suspected drug operation, there is always a chance that people who are not even involved in trafficking could be arrested. Individuals are often caught up in something that's far bigger than they may have realized based on their small part in an operation. Addicts can also end up arrested and charged with serious crimes, even if they were merely selling a few drugs on the side to support their habit.
