Wisconsin fans of actor David Hasselhoff might be interested in learning that his daughter Hayley was arrested for allegedly driving while she was intoxicated. The incident happened on May 13 around 4 a.m. on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles.
According to law enforcement officers with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, witnesses called 911 to report a car that was stopped on an off-ramp. The responding officers reportedly found Hasselhoff asleep behind the wheel of her car with her foot on the brake. The officers reportedly awakened her and took control of her car before administering roadside sobriety tests.
Officers report that Hasselhoff failed the sobriety tests, so she was then evaluated at a hospital before being arrested. She was transported to a jail and booked into custody. Hasselhoff previously appeared on ABC’s “Huge” as well as in a feature film. It is unclear whether or not she has posted a bond or what her blood alcohol concentration level was.
A drunk driving conviction can result in severe penalties. People who are convicted of the offense may face probation, incarceration and fines. By getting help from experienced criminal defense lawyers, people may be able to secure pleas to reduced charges. If there were problems with how their cars were stopped or how the testing was completed, the lawyers may be able to win dismissal of the charges by prevailing at motions hearings at which they seek to suppress the unlawfully collected evidence. If their clients want to fight their charges, the lawyers may advocate aggressively for them through hearings and up through jury trials. Many people are able to get better outcomes in their cases with the help of lawyers.
