The Waste Management Phoenix Open 2015 edition will be held again at the TPC of Scottsdale. The actual tournament runs from Thursday January 29th to Sunday February 1st (which is also Super Bowl 49). There are tournament related activities earlier in the week but the actual tournament starts on Thursday. As is customary, there will be huge parties at the ‘Bird’s Nest’ located on the grounds of the TPC of Scottsdale. There are 100’s of thousands of people expected to attend the tournament each day and the concerts each night at the Bird’s Nest.
With the influx of people looking to party and drink alcohol at the tournament, the Scottsdale Police will be out in full force with DUI checkpoints & patrols. They are also for other criminal violations like Minor in Consumption and Minor in Possession of Alcohol as well as Public Intoxication. If you have had too much to drink, we urge you to use Uber or find a safe ride home. You really don’t want to deal with a DUI arrest and the penalties associated with a conviction. Over the years, David has earned a good reputation as a Scottsdale DUI lawyer from his clients. If you do need legal representation stemming from an arrest for a DUI or other alcohol related crime, give us a call at (602) 307-0808, 24 hours a day.
If you do encounter police officers at the Phoenix Open, David Cantor has this bit of advice:
As David says in the video, if you are stopped by law enforcement in Scottsdale, don’t answer any of their questions, but politely ask to speak with your lawyer first and then give us a call. This tactic will pay dividends if you are arrested and a potential case goes to trial. In addition, it’s your right to speak with legal counsel. If that right is denied, your case can be dismissed and thrown out.
Please if you do plan to party and have fun at the Phoenix Open do so responsibly and plan for a ride home. Or have another plan like going to Zipps Bar and Grill to eat and take a shuttle to and from the Phoenix Open tournament site. But most of all, please have a great time and be safe out there!
If you have been suspected of DUI in Scottsdale or Disorderly Conduct, Minor in Possession of Alcohol, or Minor in Consumption of Alcohol, please give our lawyers a call. We offer free consultations and our phone is answered 24 hours a day. Please give us a call or send an email if you need help, (602) 307-0808.
