Last year Las Vegas continued to see the rate of DUI arrests and DUI related court cases rise. Nearly 2,000 more DUI arrests occurred last year in Las Vegas compared to 2011. Most notable among these cases, perhaps, is that of Shauna Diane Miller.
The Las Vegas dancer is charged with driving under the influence of marijuana as well as having a BAC more than double the legal limit (.08). On March 23, Miller crashed her Hummer into a Ford Escort around 7:30 a.m., killing the 33 year old driver. Since 1995, the Las Vegas area has averaged more than 100 drunk driving deaths annually.
