Salt Lake Man Enters Homes While Drunk
Over the weekend the police received a call from two separate very concerned home owners who had an unwanted guest in their home. On Saturday, a 20-year-old man entered a home on 1700 South through an unlocked back door. The man was then confronted by the homeowner upon which he exited the home and hide in the back yard. After the homeowner yelled to the man that the cops had been notified the man ran to a home next door and did the same thing but remained locked in the home until law enforcement sent a K-9 unit in to bring the man under compliance. All of this took place while the man, Alexander Roegiers, was intoxicated. The initial investigation is into two counts of trespassing and public intoxication.
The story above is yet another example of the dangers that come with becoming irresponsibly intoxicated. Although alcohol consumption is not illegal it is heavily regulated and many people find themselves facing criminal charges simply because they did not take the necessary precautions to make sure their alcohol consumption was done within the confines of the law. Along with public intoxication, irresponsible intoxication could result in DUI charges, impaired driving charges, or even an automobile homicide if an intoxicated driver causes a death.
