I was attending a well known motorcycle club's benefit and as soon as I left, I was stopped for speeding. There were Sherriffs Dept officers waiting for people leaving this benefit. I had a couple of beers and I knew the second I got stopped I was going to jail. I asked how fast I was going twice and was told that I was speeding and going over the speed limit. They did not clock me. I feel like this was a trap. I knew I was going to jail anyways so I refused testing.

When on probation in the state of New Mexico you test positive for meth doesn't the P.O. have to send test to a lab or can theyd
I was recently placed on probation my initial first visit I tested positive for meth. I am also court ordered to attend a rehab which I found myself the day before I was going to go to rehab my P.O. called me and said I was not going to rehab because I had to go to court on my violation first. But he wanted me to go report to do a U.A I told him I would be dirty, he wrote another violation,but never tested me. My next visit 2weeks later I was positive i was clean but after my U.A. he said I was dirty i couldn't of been dirty instead of sending it to a lab he just had me dump it in toilet.
You need to hire an attorney and DUI defense is the wrong area of law for this question.

My son was arrested last night for drag racing, speeding and aggravated fleeing. He is currently waiting for arraignment. What can we expect for bond? He's 23 and this is the first time he's been arrested. The officer told him he didn't pull over fast enough and that's why he was charged with fleeing. He has to drive as part of his job so I'm praying that his license isn't revoked or suspended. Also, his car was impounded and since it was just purchased a week ago, we can't get it out until the registration from the dealer arrives.
