A hit-and-run car wreck led Iowa police to arrest a woman for driving under the influence. In addition to OWI charges, she is also facing multiple other allegations, including charges of assault on a police officer and drug possession. Police claim that the woman bit an officer during her arrest, and is currently out of jail after posting bond.
It is not uncommon for additional criminal charges to be filed alongside allegations of drunk driving. This can exacerbate a person's legal situation, making their criminal defense needs more complex. An Iowa woman is currently facing this type of complex legal matter, with OWI charges and allegations of child endangerment.
Police officers in Iowa and elsewhere around the country often investigate a situation after observing or hearing reports of potentially dangerous activity. In many stances, the police may be ensuring the safety of those involved in an accident. However, in some cases, officers may meet with resistance and discover alleged illegal activities. A woman is facing OWI charges after apparently failing to respond to police commands following a recent car crash.
