3 Nebraska teens face drug charges due to social media post

Social media has changed how many people live their lives and how businesses advertise. Despite the uses of these communication tools, some people argue that overuse may be detrimental. In fact, police in Nebraska claim that a teenager attempted to sell drugs over social media. Three people now face drug charges as a result. 

The incident that led to the arrest of three teenagers reportedly happened in early March. A 19-year-old is accused of posting a picture on Snapchat, reportedly showing her with a large bag containing a green substance. In the post, she allegedly included information about selling drugs.

Drunk driving charge follows Nebraska car accident

Anyone who has driven knows how easy it is to exit the lane in which he or she is driving. Often something as simple as a slight curve in the road can cause such an event. However, a man in Nebraska now faces allegations of drunk driving after an incident between two cars sent a woman to the hospital.

The accident happened just before midnight on a day in early February. According to reports, a vehicle driven by a 30-year-old man drifted out of its lane. As a result, it allegedly struck the driver's side of another vehicle, causing both cars to veer to the right and strike a concrete barrier.

Vacation plan pointers for divorced parents

Getting away from your normal humdrum life when you go on vacation is an excellent way to experience new things and make memories. For parents who are divorced, it is also a time of challenges, as you have to factor child custody matters into the vacation plan.

Top priorities when you are on vacation are having fun and making memories as a family while keeping your children safe. Here are some points to consider while you are enjoying your time away from home:

Nebraska traffic stop leads to drug charges

If asked, every single person in Nebraska and across the country would likely admit to understanding the importance of certain traffic laws, such as stopping at a stop sign or obeying the speed limit. However, most people would also admit that they have, at some time in their lives, rolled through a stop sign or driven slightly faster than legally allowed. Despite not following traffic laws, these acts are not typically events that lead to an arrest. Unfortunately, such was not the case of a traffic stop that recently led to the arrest of four people on drug charges.

The event that led to the arrests happened on a day in mid-February. According to reports, a Nebraska State Patrol trooper claims to have witnessed a driver who failed to stop at a stop sign. As a result, a traffic stop was conducted, and the trooper reported that a smell of marijuana was coming from the vehicle.

Drunk driving charges for Nebraska state senator

There is not a single person who has not made some sort of mistake in his or her life. Unfortunately, depending on the person's position, a mistake for some could mean additional personal and professional consequences, including media scrutiny. The best a person can hope for is to learn from their mistakes and ensure they do not repeat them in the future. Such appears to be the case for a Nebraska state senator who is accused of drunk driving.

The incident that reportedly led to the man's arrest occurred during the early morning hours of a day in early February. According to reports, a state trooper pulled over a driver, allegedly because he was unable to maintain his lane on a Nebraska interstate. Police claim that the man, the senator, refused a breath test on two different occasions.

Criminal defense unclear for 3 arrested in Nebraska

Drugs and guns were seized in a recent series of local arrests. A joint effort of investigators with the Specialized Narcotics Abuse Effort, the Antelope County Sheriff's Office and the Nebraska State Patrol yielded three arrests on weapons and drug charges. The proposed criminal defense for the three individuals has not yet been revealed, as the case is still developing. 

One Nebraska man and two individuals from Colorado were caught up in the sweep. Authorities served a search warrant of the man's residence. He was found to allegedly be in possession of methamphetamine and was also charged with the intent to deliver the substance. 

Man accused of drunk driving following Nebraska crash

An accident that results in a serious injury is always a tragedy. However, there is often a need to hold someone accountable for such an accident even if it was a matter of a simple mistake or miscalculation. Unfortunately, a man is now accused of drunk driving following a crash in Nebraska that sent a woman to the hospital.

The incident that led to the man's arrest happened one evening on a day in late January. According to reports, a 29-year-old woman was attempting to turn when her vehicle was struck in the rear by a pickup truck. The force of the collision allegedly pushed both vehicles across the median. The woman suffered serious injuries in the crash.

DUIs affect you socially, at work and at school

You're a young adult, and although you're over the age of 21, you're still in school and building your life. You get to make all the decisions you want legally, and no one else has a say.

The problem is that many young adults like yourself still make mistakes. Those mistakes could end up costing you more than a fine or a few days in jail. For example, getting a DUI could ruin your last year or few years of college, hurt your job prospects or impact your social standing among colleagues or friends.

Drunk driving accusations follow Nebraska crash

Any driver in Nebraska is likely aware of the many potential distractions while driving. This is especially true when there are children in the car -- something as simple as handing a child a snack can cause a car to drift over the centerline, causing an accident. Unfortunately, a driver know faces accusations of drunk driving after a recent crash.

The crash happened on a night in mid-January. According to reports, a pickup truck containing a driver and two juveniles was northbound at the time of the accident. Police claim that the truck crossed the center line, resulting in a collision with a southbound vehicle.

How field sobriety tests impact drunk driving arrests

Driving while under the influence of alcohol is a serious offense in Nebraska. As the consequences for drunk driving are serious and typically involve a loss of driving privileges or even jail time, officers must be certain that an arrest is justified. Rather than relying on gut feelings regarding a driver's level of intoxication, police will use various tests to ascertain a driver's level of intoxication.

If an officer pulls over a driver for erratic behavior or notices signs of intoxication during a traffic stop, he or she might request that the driver submit to field sobriety testing. These are simple, roadside tests that police use when trying to determine if further testing is needed. Failing a field sobriety test might lead an officer to request a Breathalyzer or blood test.
