Don’t Get Caught with a Warrant During a Storm
Posted on Oct 4, 2013 in DUI/DWI, Local Issues, Weather
As Tropical Storm Karen heads towards the New Orleans and Gulf Coast region, citizens need to be prepared for power outages and intense rain. However, another concern which may not cross your mind is the potential for arrest when you have an outstanding warrant during a hurricane or tropical storm. During Hurricane Katrina, numerous citizens were caught in jail for minor offenses or warrants while conditions around them, including the courts and police force, deteriorated rapidly. As always, we strongly advise against drinking and driving and advise against breaking any laws, especially when there is a natural disaster on its way.
