Top Interstate 81 Reckless Driving Lawyer: Daniel Wallace is a Scottish Swimmer who was on Great Britain’s Olympic Team in the 2016 Summer Olympics.  In the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Wallace won the 400 meter individual medley.  He was on the team that won gold in the 2015 FINA Aquatics Championship’s 4 x 200 meters freestyle relay team.  Wallace got a silver in the 2016 Summer Olympics for that relay race.  Wallace hails from Edinburgh, Scotland and was trained by Laurel Bailey at the Warrender Baths Club.  Wallace got an athletic scholarship to swim for the University of Florida.  Wallace was on the University’s NCAA National Championship 4 x 200 yard freestyle relay in 2013.  Wallace was second in the NCAA 500 yard freestyle in both 2014 and 2015.  Wallace was All-American twelve times.

Top Interstate 81 Reckless Driving Lawyer:  Wallace had been in the news after the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow for yelling, “For Freedom” after winning the relay.  Wallace backed away from supporting the Scottish Independence Referendum by claiming that he was merely stating a line from the movie Braveheart.  Wallace recently entered a guilty plea to DUI.  In addition to any legal penalties, Wallace was suspended from all national swimming programs until September 12, 2017.  Apparently a DUI conviction breaks the athlete code of conduct.  This suspension will keep Wallace from attending July’s World Championship in Budapest.  Wallace released a statement to the press saying,

“It is with much regret that I was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol.  Not only have I let myself, my family and team-mates down, I have put others at risk and I am profoundly sorry for my actions. I recognise that I am in a position of influence and this type of behaviour is not acceptable in any way, shape or form….”
