David Hasselhoff's daughter charged with drunk driving

Washington residents may be interested to learn that actress Hayley Hasselhoff was taken into police custody on May 13 for driving under the influence. Hayley, the 24-your-old daughter of David Hasselhoff, has appeared in several television shows and movies, including "Sharknado." Her father has battled with alcohol and substance abuse issues publicly in the past.

Hayley Hasselhoff was reportedly driving on U.S. Highway 101 when her vehicle came to a halt on the Fallbrook off-ramp at about 4 a.m. Witnesses alerted the authorities to the stopped vehicle. When they arrived at the scene, authorities found the 24-year-old actress passed out with her foot on the brake. The authorities were able to wake her up and take control of the vehicle.

The police conducted a sobriety test before taking her to a hospital for an evaluation. After she was cleared, she was booked into a nearby jail at about 6:20 a.m. She was charged with a misdemeanor and released on $5,000 bail. Her next court date was scheduled for June 7.

In Washington, a person may be charged with drunk driving if they have a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher or if their driving was affected by an intoxicating liquor. Authorities can even charge a person with drunk driving even if they are not actively driving the vehicle. For example, a person can still be charged with DUI if they are found sitting in the driver's seat of a stationary vehicle. One way to defend a person against the charges is to find weaknesses in the case. A criminal law attorney may look for technicalities or find other weaknesses in such a case.
