In just a few hours, Baltimore Beer Week 2015 will kick off events all over the city. Spanning from October 9th through the 18th, there will be hundreds of events from Federal Hill to Canton to Fells Point to Mount Vernon and also into Baltimore, Howard, and Harford Counties. Events include free beer tastings, discounted beer prices, bar crawls, and beer festivals.
Thousands of people will be attending events over the next several days, with the most popular event being Das Oktoberfest, which is tomorrow in the M & T Bank Stadium parking lot. Large-scale drinking events like this one often lead to people driving under the influence of alcohol. Weather this weekend is expected to be perfect, which could also increase the number of people who plan to attend beer events. There are so many means of transportation to get around nowadays that it is amazing how many people still choose to drive drunk and put their lives and the lives of others at risk. Police officers are likely to increase DUI patrols this weekend and next week as there are numerous Beer Week events going on.
If you have been arrested for a DUI/DWI it is important that you consult an experienced Maryland DUI attorney immediately because DUI is a criminal offense and carries potentially severe penalties. An experienced attorney can guide you through the court process and find any possible defenses that can either mitigate the penalties in the case, or in some instances, lead to an acquittal or dismissal.
