Can I get an attorney appointed to me by the court for a misdemeanor DUI, public drunk, failure to comply and using profanity?
I was sitting in my vehicle on a rural country road talking to my elderly mom at 7:44 pm when a cop pulled up behind me and got out of his vehicle and came up to my truck and ask me to step out, put my hands on the hood, then patted me down, took me to jail (he said), for public drunk. When I got to the jail and I verbally protested his action(s), he then trumped up the charges, DUI, failure to comply (what), using profanity on a public Road? All I did was protest being arrested because I was not drinking alcohol, only sprite, I was not driving, only sitting, the vehicle was not even running. They took me to the jail and they stripped search me, they put me in a holding cell until next day. They taped a ticket up on the cell glass door that showed a DUI charge.
I would advise hiring an attorney. While it is an expense, it is worth it in the long run. Many municipalities will...
Can i get a DUI if the officer let me drive home?
I was in the drivers seat of my vehicle at a party. I had one drink earlier that night. We were boxed in by other vehicles so we were waiting for them to leave. My passenger was going to drive me home, after we had a way out of the yard we were going to switch seats. Cop rolls up asked me my name, what I had to drink, my parents names and how old I was (19). Another cop says all drivers are getting breathalyzed before they leave. My passenger was nervous because he had been smoking marijuana and I knew I wasn't impaired so I took the breathalyzer. I blew a .02 and he told me I could go and he watched me drive away. My question is.. Did I dodge a bullet? Or could I be charged with DUI or MIP? he never saw my license or registration. Never gave me a ticket or anything. The officer didn't write anything down. I was in a front yard on private property with about 40 other vehicles.
Asked and answered in the past. You almost certainly dodged a bullet, but you might still receive something later. If...
Do probation officers administer hair follicle for DUI offense?
Received my first (and last) DUI. I am doing 6 months probation, 1 visit a month. I'm told you have to pay for your drug tests if he/she (probation officer) administers one. Do probation officers "typically" administer hair follicle tests for something of this sort (as they are more expensive) or just UA? What could I expect? Thank you
They typically use a simple urinalysis reagent test.
Is it possible they will give me a citation in the mail? What will be the punishment if I do?
I was at a party last night with my friend and their were about 70-80 people there. A girl made me a drink and I decided to drink it. It was kind of strong but I drank it anyway. Their was a lot of marijuana there so we decided to leave but our truck was boxed in by other vehicles. I told my friend to drive my truck and he agreed, but out of habit I got in the drivers seat. So we are waiting for some of the cars to leave so we can get out and then the cops show up. One cop came up and said they were going to breathalyze everyone driving and just to sit tight. Then another cop came and asked me what I had to drink and I told him a cup of grape juice with a small amount of vodka a few hours ago. He then told me he was going to breathalyze me and asked what my name was, how old I was, and who my parents were. I didn't see him write anything down, but it was dark so I don't really know what he did. I blew a 0.02 and he told me I could go. He didn't breathalyze my friend. I AM INCREDIBLY PARANOID THAT I AM GOING TO GET AN UNDERAGE DRINKING TICKET IN THE MAIL. I live in Mississippi and this is my first run in with law enforcement beside getting a ticket for running a stop sign.
You are lucky in the vehicle's driver seat you did not get a DUI. It is unlikely they will mail you a ticket but...
