Traffic stop often leads to more charges

A recent traffic stop of a Kentucky man provides a cautionary tale of how a simple traffic offense can expand to a great number of charges. The man was facing 16 charges, from traffic violations and misdemeanors to seven felonies. The charges included speeding, open container, DUI second offense, seatbelt violation, lack of insurance, driving on a DUI suspended license, resisting arrest, wanton endangerment (three counts), identity theft and evading police.
