NFL Player’s Arrest Shows Traffic Offenses May Escalate Rapidly

In Denver and throughout Colorado, people who are facing traffic offenses might downplay them and function under the impression that they are not problematic. This belief is a mistake and those who are confronted with a traffic offense whether it is speeding, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license or any other infraction should address it before it escalates.

Challenges that can arise from traffic violations are exemplified by a recent high-profile arrest.

Denver Broncos Linebacker Arrested for Failing to Appear After Traffic Violation

Bradley Chubb, a linebacker for the Broncos, was detained by law enforcement because he did not appear in court for traffic violations from May. Mr. Chubb was supposed to appear on Aug. 6, but allegedly did not. When he was recently pulled over for speeding, the officers found that there was a warrant for his arrest because of the failure to appear.

After he was taken into custody, the warrant was canceled. He had a separate traffic incident in December 2020 in which he was found to have been driving 10 to 19 miles beyond the speed limit. He was found guilty the next month. Mr. Chubb is a major contributor to the Broncos. He was selected on the first round of the NFL draft and was a Pro Bowler after the 2020 season.

Traffic Offenses Should Not be Taken Lightly

Although Mr. Chubb’s traffic offenses might not be comparable to more serious violations like driving under the influence, fleeing the scene of an accident or road rage, he was still subject to a warrant and taken into custody when he failed to appear. These allegations should be treated with the seriousness they deserve to avoid long-term problems.

Losing driving privileges can negatively impact a person’s ability to get certain jobs. The arrest record could reflect poorly on them personally and professionally and should be avoided if possible.

Professional Assistance Can be Critical After Traffic Offenses

There may be options to have the charges dismissed or reduced through comprehensive criminal defense. Scrutinizing the situation from the start is vital. Those who might have missed a court appearance and are dealing with the possibility of worse charges should also be cognizant of the value of a strong defense.

Before traffic violations reach a challenging level where they take away a person’s freedom and beget other sanctions, having legal assistance from the start is a wise decision.
