Golfer Matthew Giles Arrested for DUI
On Monday April 16th, Gilbert police arrested professional golfer Matthew Giles for suspicion of DUI after he crashed his car into a home. The 22 year-old was believed to have been speeding while trying to make a left-hand turn when the accident occurred. The crash ruptured a gas line at the house, but no one was injured.
Giles is originally from Sydney, Australia, but now resides in Scottsdale.
According to the Gilbert Municipal Court, Giles was charged with DUI, super extreme DUI, and speeding. Giles had his initial hearing on these on April 20, 2012. If he is convicted of DUI, he will face fines, mandatory jail time, a suspended license, and will have to install an ignition interlock device on his vehicle for at least 6 months. Not having a valid driver’s license may also interfere with Giles’ ability to drive a golf cart.
It is imperative if you are charged with DUI, that you have an experienced Arizona DUI attorney fighting on your behalf. If you have been arrested for DUI, please contact a DUI attorney at Oracle Law Group Office P.C. for assistance with your DUI case.
