Urine chemical tests for DWAI/DWI
I enjoy the occasional joint of marijuana here and there. I have a friend who was arrested for a DWAI - drugs when he was high driving and they urine tested him. I do not drive high, I would be too worried about something happening. I am however worried that if I am legitimately tired or suffering from allergies and the officer believes I am high. Can he then give me a urine test, which would show cannabis in your system up to 30 days? Can they actually arrest you and charge you with this based on your urine? How can they prove it was in your system at the time of driving?
They can arrest for common-law intoxication where they believe, based upon their training and experience, that you are...
Question about probable cause on a DWI?
I unfortunately was arrested for a DWI. I was followed late at night, by an off duty cop who was driving his own personal vehicle, a Jeep, with off road auxiliary lights on super high. He followed me all the way to my home. I felt extremely scared and didn't know who he was. He also was tailgating me extremely close. My security camera at my home captured him doing this. He apparently made a call (I don't know to whom as I never recd the reports or if there was a 911 call) and I subsequently was arrested for DWI by another cop. I wanted to find out if this would still constitute probable cause? He claimed that I was driving erratic, which I was definitely was because I was frightened out of my mind. I am female and live alone. He never identified himself so I was terrified. Thank you.
i would have to read the complaint. If it says that the arresting officer was informed by the other off duty cop that...

My car has been impounded in Stony Brook univ. by university police for the evidence of DWI. How do I free the car?
I was caught on 4/25 in university campus for DWI (0.10), and on 6/09, my case has been adjourned for probation for a year with several conditions to follow (I have a conditional license now)(Case was sentenced in Central Islip). I asked my attorney for freeing the impounded car for the needs of driving . Which he did mention that in the court on June 9th, when I was sentenced for the probation. However, I haven't heard anything about from the university police office (no letter from DA office yet). I would like to know an estimated time that the paper work from DA office will be sent to univ. police office. Or any paper work that needs to be done to free the impounded car by me or the attorney to the DA office? Thank you
Ask your lawyer again. Find out where the car is located and make arrangements to pick it up. There is likely a...
