Despite this, police in California believe that drunk driving was a factor in a recent car accident, resulting in the driver's arrest.

The incident happened one afternoon on a day in January. According to reports, a 20-year-old male was driving on a California road when his vehicle "suddenly left the roadway." It is unclear what caused the vehicle to do so.

California doctor faces drug charges re overdoses

When a violent crime happens, police may be in a rush to show that they are making progress toward holding someone accountable. Unfortunately, this could mean that a person who was not involved with the crime faces scrutiny. In fact, a doctor who owns an urgent care in California now faces drug charges after others committed crimes.

Police say that the doctor, a 57-year-old, has been under investigation by the DEA since 2015.

Man accused of murder in death of California librarian

In order for a person to be convicted of a crime, there must be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Often, this standard is difficult to meet.

Reports indicate that the man had contentious interactions with employees at the library that employed the 41-year-old woman that the 56-year-old man is accused of shooting. As a result of the incident that happened in October he was issued a stay-away order. Despite the order, the details of the incident -- including whether it involved the now-deceased woman -- are unclear.

Unfortunately, two men are likely considering their criminal defense following their recent arrests related to events that allegedly occurred after the Camp Fire evacuation in California.

Police claim that officers were patrolling an evacuated area one afternoon on a day in mid-November. According to reports, a utility worker approached them and reported seeing two men looting. Police say they then saw two men, ages 41 and 48, enter a home.
