Washington D.C., Jan. 14 (ANI): History has repeated itself for Drake Bell as he has been officially charged with DUI once again.
Driving under the influence (DUI) or Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a crime of driving a motor vehicle while impaired by alcohol or other drugs (including those prescribed by physicians), to a level that renders the driver incapable of operating a motor vehicle safely.
Sources revealed that the L.A. County District Attorney charged the 29-year-old actor with one count of misdemeanor for DUI for his arrest in December, reports TMZ.com.
Cops said that the ‘Drake and Josh’ star refused to have his Blood alcohol content (BAC) tested when they pulled him over for allegedly swerving and driving at a speed of 55 km per hour in a 35 km per hour driving zone.
Blood alcohol content, also called blood alcohol concentration, blood ethanol concentration, or blood alcohol level is most commonly used as a metric of alcohol intoxication for legal or medical purposes. Blood Alcohol Content is the legal name for BAC but Blood Alcohol Concentration is sometimes used for simpler description.
Blood alcohol content is usually expressed as a percentage of ethanol in the blood in units of mass of alcohol per volume of blood or mass of alcohol per mass of blood, depending on the country. For instance, in North America a BAC of 0.1 (0.1 percent or one tenth of one percent) means that there are 0.10 g of alcohol for every dL of blood.
Previously, Bell was also charged with DUI in San Diego in 2009. (ANI)
