President of Sean John clothing line cleared of DWI charge

The President of Sean John, a clothing line spearheaded by Sean "Diddy" Combs, was accused of driving under the influence recently. However, the charges against the man, Jeff Tweedy, were dropped for undisclosed reasons. No details are given in the article, and all we know about the incident in question is that the police noticed that Tweedy had watery, bloodshot eyes and that his breath smelled of alcohol.

While the story is short on details, there is a lot to learn from this incident. The first element of this story that is important is that presuming someone is guilty just because they face a DUI or DWI charge is obviously the wrong way to perceive the situation. There are plenty of complications or mistakes that could change the course of the case and show the the accused individual is free of wrongdoing.

Along these same lines, the police must follow the procedures and protocols that they are charged with completing when they suspect that someone is drinking and driving. If they violate a person's basic rights, or if they fail to administer certain tests in a proper way, then the entire case against the accused person could be thrown out.

Even if your case doesn't have any of these complications involved in it, the accused persons till needs to seeks legal help so that they can defend their case. Even if this means just minimizing the damage of the charge, it is worth it to help save you from the worst possible outcome.
