Washington State DUI defense attorneys are seeing more and more “drug DUI” arrests. A number of these incidents occur after a driver takes a sleeping pill (Ambien is commonly involved) and then remains awake instead of falling asleep. Such a person has an impaired ability to drive, but might not even know that he is driving. Alternatively, a person might take a sleeping pill and wake up while the effects of the drug are still affecting the brain. We don’t know exactly what happened, but according to news media accounts, a police officer in Florida found herself charged with DUI after, she says, she “took an extra sleeping pill.” Here’s the story.
