California bar shines spotlight on attorneys caught drinking and driving

Two San Diego County lawyers have gotten a public reproval from the California bar, both for drunken driving.

According to the report by the bar, Richard James Schneiders of Carlsbad was reported October 4, 2013, by a person who said "a reckless driver was driving a silver Honda on the wrong side of the road, drove over a curve [sic], drove in circles in the roadway, then pulled into a Shell gas station." The police found the car was still in drive and was touching a guardrail, which kept the car from going forward.

The officer woke Schneiders, "whose eyes were watery, unfocused, and whose speech was slurred," according to the bar report. Schneiders "denied drinking and would not cooperate with field sobriety tests." There was one open bottle of vodka, one empty bottle of vodka, and two empty beer cans in the car. At the police station, Schneiders' blood alcohol level was found to be 0.30 percent. He had a previous conviction of driving with 0.08 percent or more blood alcohol level. He was placed on formal probation for five years, ordered to install a location-monitoring device, and given home detention for 90 days.

On October 13, 2013, David Raymond Preston of San Diego accelerated and drove into the front of a Wine and Spirits store while trying to park his vehicle. Police arrived and noticed the odor of alcohol and "blood-shot, glazed and glassy eyes, and slurred and mumbled speech," according to the bar report.

Preston admitted to drinking "a couple of beers and glasses of wine." Asked if he remembered the crash, Preston stated, "Yeah, I think I kind of accelerated. Did I do okay?" He flunked the field sobriety test and was arrested for driving under the influence. His breath test was 0.25 percent. He was on probation for a previous driving under the influence conviction until May 24, 2017. He has had one other such conviction, too.
