What Constitutes Intoxication Assault?

Driving while under the influence of a significant amount of alcohol is an illegal act. It is punishable under the law, usually with large fines and periods of probation. However, on top of a DUI/DWI charge, those accused of driving while above the legal limit can potentially be charged with a number of other criminal offenses, such as manslaughter or assault. By knowing what actions can constitute intoxication assault you are better able to protect yourself and those you care about.

Forms of Intoxication Assault

There are many different actions that could lead to a charge of intoxication assault. These include the following:

  • Causing a car collision in which you physically harm the other drivers or passengers
  • Coming into contact with a pedestrian and causing him or her bodily harm while driving
  • Assembling a mobile amusement ride while intoxicated, causing bodily harm
  • Causing physical injury to innocent individuals while operating a vehicle, water craft, or mobile amusement ride while under the influence of alcohol

These actions can only result in an intoxication assault conviction if it is proven that serious physical injury occurred as a direct result of the operations done by the intoxicated individual.
