Man arrested after alleged robbery of multiple homes

Many people in Tennessee like to receive things for free, especially if they really want the item or could really use the money. Most people wait until it is given to them, but there are some individuals who do not wait and simply take the items they want. This is illegal, though, and if the people are caught stealing, they could face serious consequences including jail time.

There are many motor vehicle accidents caused by drunk drivers

As the holidays approach, there are many different parties that people in Tennessee attend. There are parties with friends and families, work parties, parties for charitable organizations and other groups. These are usually festive occasions where there is plenty of food and in many instances alcohol. People tend to consume alcohol at these types of parties to help them loosen up or unwind. This by itself is not a bad thing, but the choices people make after consuming alcohol can have lasting effects.

The deadly problem of distracted driving

Distracted driving is a major problem that threatens the health and safety of every driver in Tennessee. More drivers are using cellphones while behind the wheel, and in-car technology and infotainment systems are prevalent. There is no shortage of things that can take a driver's attention from the task at hand, and it is leading to higher numbers of car accidents.

How domestic violence affects child custody in Tennessee

Every couple and family in Tennessee has disagreements and fights from time to time. This is common, but how people handle the fights vary from family to family. Some shut down and take time before they resolve it and some may attack the problem head on and resolve it right away. However, unfortunately some people resort to physical violence to resolve the fights. This is obviously not the right way to resolve the fight.

Helping disabled individuals pursue the benefits they need

Life for people in Tennessee is unpredictable. Even when one has routines, and one day sometimes feels no different than the last, unexpected things can happen to anyone. It could be a car accident, a workplace accident, they may be the victim of a crime or other things can happen. These incidents also can lead to catastrophic injuries that change a person's life for a long time or even permanently. The victims may no longer be able to perform the physical or mental tasks that they were accustomed to performing prior to the incident.

Drug possession in Tennessee can have serious consequences

Most drug users in Tennessee are not dealing drugs or trying to distribute the drugs to others. They simply want to have enough of the drug for their own personal use. People in this situation may also give some to friends or family from time to time for their limited use, but nothing beyond that. While this may seem harmless compared to those who are involved in selling them or bringing in the drugs from other countries, there are still serious consequences for those caught possessing drugs.
