A teenager in Louisiana was arrested after killing another young man, and he was put on trial for murder. He was acquitted, however, after showing that all he did was act in self-defense against a threat he could not otherwise evade.
It has long been known that drunk driving arrest statistics do not tell the whole story. After all, many people drink and drive without getting caught. While police can release arrest numbers, they know that other possible drunk drivers slipped through the cracks. However, it is hard to pin down exactly how many people drink and drive.
