There’s nothing quite like the end of summer. Everyone wants to savor those last few lazy afternoons and warm weather weekends. The best time to take a vacation is almost over. Everyone wants to spend a little extra time outside while they can. Unfortunately, this brings forth many activities that can escalate into potential arrests. When someone is accused of committing a crime, we know it’s easy to become overwhelmed and tired with the fight. We’ve put together a brief explanation of why so many more people seem to get arrested before fall comes.

Arrests at Large Outdoor Events

High late summer temperatures make people impulsive and irrational with their decisions. Furthermore, outdoor summertime events bring diverse groups of people together. When there are large crowds and general confusion, people can become out of control and enraged leading to a fight. This type of behavior is prominent during large scale events such as concerts where alcohol consumption occurs.

DUI and DWD

A cold one, or several, on the front porch can help combat the summer heat. Few things compare to the ice cold beverage, but some people choose to take the risk of getting behind the wheel after they’ve imbibed some alcohol. The police know that alcohol consumption increases during summer months; therefore, they increase the number of active patrols to catch people with a DWI or DUI. Speaking of driving related incidents, people driving unsafely or while drowsy may find themselves at the other end of a patrol car. We know that many people choose to take long road trips with friends or family. The amount of “DWD”/driving while drowsy cases rises every summer. If you feel you’re becoming too tired to drive, you should stop at a rest stop for a few hours or check into a hotel for the evening. You won’t make it to your destination if you have an accident or are incarcerated.

Home Theft

Being away from home for an extended vacation or period of time brings up another common reason people get arrested: home theft. Excessive summer spending can motivate others to search for money or valuables in another’s home. In these instances, people find themselves arrested due to situations of their own creation.

In order to have the best possible experience during these final dog days of summer, you must adhere to the laws and avoid breaking them at all costs. If you do get arrested, there are ways to get back to the sun. You’ll need a reliable, dependable bail bondsman to address your legal situation. Within a few minutes, we can begin the process of getting you out of jail to enjoy the summertime once again.
