If you have ever heard about the ignition interlock device, it's likely because you have been charged with driving under the influence. This device, most simply put, is one that stops a vehicle from turning on if the driver has been drinking alcohol. It is typically issued by the court for drivers who have had multiple offenses related to drunk driving. Let's take a look at the ignition interlock device.
A 22-year-old Temple Hills man was taken into custody by Prince George's County police officers on Sept. 5 for his alleged involvement in killing a 16-year-old Montgomery County boy during the previous month. He's currently facing both first- and second-degree murder charges related to the slaying.
Sheriff's deputies in Wicomico County claim that they saw a man acting suspiciously in the parking lot of a Royal Farms store late last month. The alleged suspicious behavior led to police approaching the man -- a 39-year-old from Salisbury -- and questioning him. This, in turn, resulted in his arrest.
