Porn Star Brianna Banks was arrested in Los Angeles earlier this week for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). The arrest occurred around 9:00 a.m. Banks was involved in a fender bender earlier, and the other party called the police to report that Banks might be DUI. Police responded and contacted Banks as she exited the McDonald's drive-thru. Police asked Banks to perform several roadside exercises, which she was unable to successfully complete, and she was subsequently arrested for DUI.
Driving Under the Influence (also called DUI, DWI or OUI depending on your jurisdiction) is an extremely serious offense. Even a first conviction for DUI can have serious consequences, including up to six (6) months in jail, mandatory community service, burdensome DUI education and alcohol counseling requirements, in addition to having your license suspended. A second offense DUI has even more extensive punishments. A third offense DUI or any DUI involving Death or Substantial Bodily Harm results in mandatory prison sentences – meaning that the judge cannot give probation, even if he or she wanted to.
