Two charges levied on man said to have stolen car

When a person in Nebraska is placed under arrest for any type of crimes, officers are required to have sufficient evidence with which to support placing that person under arrest. The type of evidence that is required obviously varies by the type of offense that a person is accused of but nonetheless this is essential to a criminal case.

For one man who was arrested in North Platte recently, reports give only a slight bit of information that may give credence to the arrest. Some details are missing that would logically make someone feel more needs to be known. The defendant has actually been accused of two crimes. One is the theft of a vehicle from an automotive repair shop and the other is drunk driving. For the first offense, what is known is that the vehicle the man was driving was not legally owned by him nor was he granted use of the vehicle by the owner. It is not known how he actually obtained the vehicle.

Part of a drunk driving arrest process is the administration of field sobriety tests. Reports suggest that the man did take these though official results are not provided saying only that he "showed signs" of being impaired. His blood alcohol content is also not provided. Certainly more objective facts would be necessary as a criminal defense process continues.

Defendants who are accused of crimes might want to talk with an attorney about the type of evidence involved in their cases and how that may impact their defense options.
