Can an officer make me do a field sobriety test based on my criminal history?
I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop for a cracked windshield. I had all my documents necessary and I gave them to him. Another cop pulls up in a truck. They chit chat for a minute, then the truck cop comes to my door & asks me to step out so he can explain the ticket to me. I get out & we walk to the back of the car. The motorcycle cop tells me hes just giving me a fix it ticket & has me sign it. I was shaking a lil because every time I get pulled over by cottonwood heights cops it never turns out good. So then the motorcycle cop says hes seen that I have a criminal past with drugs and/or something recently with them. I say thats correct. Then he asks me if there's anything illegal in the car, I say no. Then he asks me if he can search the car, I say no, he asks why, I tell him I was on my way to pick my brother up & now im late. Then the truck cop starts saying something about my eyes and then asks me if im on drugs, I tell him no. Then he asks me if ill do a field sobriety test, I repeat everything I said before. Then the motorcycle cop snickers and says thats just his nice way of telling you you're going to do a field sobriety test based on your background. Is that legal?
No, a police officer is not supposed to make you do a field sobriety test. Those are, in theory, voluntary. My question...
I blew 0.024 and was given a DUI citation he called it. do I need to hire an atty to have the charges dropped?
On Cinco de Mayo, I was invited to company party. I arrived at 4:30 PM and left around 6:00 PM. When I first got there, I had one Margarita. Before leaving I drank some water and did not feel buzzy so I decided I could drive. I drove around for the next couple of hours looking for an open salon to get a haircut. I'm new to the area. About 8:00 PM, I pulled into Tangles just off of Fort Union and 2000 East. A girl came to the front desk and told me she was just finishing up and I would have to come back before 5:00 PM to make an appointment. So I left and went back to my car in their parking lot. I noticed there were 3 other cars there and didn't think anything of it. I sat in the driver's seat with the keys in the ignition, engine was not started, and checked email and returned Voice Mail. Twenty minutes later, 2 police cars came driving up and asked me what I was doing and If I had been drinking. I said yes and consequently did not want to blow into their device that could have been tampered with. So I took the 3 street tests. I was arrested, car was impounded, DL was taken and I was taken back to the police station. He finished filling out his report and told me...
Yes, you better hire competent legal counsel on this one..
Can I be charged for an ambulance taking my blood for a dui?

Yes, you are required to pay the bill but that is the least of your problems. You only have 10 days to contact the DMV...
Is it possible to get a small business license in Utah with a drug related felony?
my husband and I want to start our own adventure, he is a great handyman and I would do all the paperwork, etc. but I was told by someone that I couldn't get a business license because they will do a background check and I had a drug charge like 5 years ago which was a 3rd degree felony. I did my time and have been clean since. am I really being punished for this 5 years after I have paid my debt to society?
I am not aware of any blanket prohibitions for felons to own a business. Their may be more specific business...
When and how does a dui case get thrown out
I passed the field soberity test, then the officer still insisted to take me in but didn't tell me what for, my vehicle was impounded. I refused the blood test because of several reasons but mainly because I didn't know you one couldn't so I'm still confused on why we are given an option, the officer was cynical with me and told me it was his first day on the job therefore I questioned his integrity and level of professionalism. Another reason I refused is because I questioned the cleanliness of the station vs. a hospital setting which was never offered to me. When the blood results came back they were absolutely negative for alcohol (zero) and negative for the substance heroin which was my DOC but had and have recieved treatment for this substance abuse. Puzzling I was positive for Methamphetamine and thc ?? I've not used meth nor remember ever smoking thc in the previous 30 day preluding?? The biggest injustice is that once I ever do get my license back the DMV has required to have a alcohol device in my vehicle for 5 years and I'm not even a drinker. I'm very passionate about drunk driving.. I had a dear cousin killed in alcohol related accident I 1993.
Call a local DUI attorney immediately in your area and cease posting anything else about your case.
What does it mean if my citation for dui arrest is unsigned?
I was arrested for dui, after passing field sobriety tests, I was asked to blow into breathalyzer machine which I did two times, the officer said before the third time she was giving me one last chance to do it right so I blew one more time the office got mad and immediately said she was arresting me and handcuffed me. The citation as a promise to appear was never signed by me the copy provided to me has no signature. I was then given a blood test performed by the arresting officer who took two vials of blood one contained white powder which she shook up mixing with my blood she then took a smaller vial of just blood she had me sign a vehicle inventory report which states one vial of blood was inventoried to which it also had a field for a inventory witness signature but there is no signature. Are any of these things grounds for dismissal.
