A DUI is the ultimate lump of coal for Christmas

Many people like to grumble about the Christmas season. It's too hectic, too commercial, too long and too much of this and too much of that. But most of us concede that the holiday season gives us opportunities to get together with family and friends to share food, laughs and companionship.

Memphis motorists urged not to drink and drive

Memphis sits at a crossroads, in between Little Rock to the west and Nashville to the east, and in between Jackson to the south and St. Louis to the north. At the same time, we're also a premier destination for travelers and vacationers. Combine these factors with a holiday and you get a lot of traffic flowing in and out of Shelby County and a lot of planes taking off and landing at Memphis International Airport over the coming few days.

Video of Tiger Woods' DUI arrest released

A few days ago, Memphis TV stations joined networks around the nation in broadcasting news that stunned the sports world: Tiger Woods had been arrested. The golf icon was arrested for driving under the influence near his Florida home.Shortly after the news of the arrest broke, Woods released an apology along with a statement that he had not been drinking. He said he had experienced an unusual reaction from prescribed medications. Law enforcement seemed to back up his contention when police revealed that he had blown a 0.0 BAC (blood alcohol content) on a breathalyzer.

Pressure on Memphis VA to fire woman after DUI

She has been punished, but some members of the media have decided her punishment was insufficient. An employee at the Memphis Veteran Affairs facility recently completed a 60-day jail sentence for a DUI conviction.But several media outlets -- including the Tennessean and the Daily Caller -- have run large extensive articles on the 32-year-old. Clearly, the pressure is on the VA to fire her though she paid her debt to society.

Breath test result doesn't necessarily make or break your case

How does one end up facing a DUI charge? Being arrested for suspicion of DUI probably brings to mind a night-time traffic stop and an image of someone taking a breath test. These are common lead-ups to a drunk driving arrest and charge, but the commonness of a breath test doesn't mean the test is reliable or the most important aspect of a Tennessee case.

Did a celebratory Guinness get you arrested for DUI?
