Received a B.W.I. when not even driving or even in boat.
When we came back to the dock a person was dropped off to back the truck. At this point i had been the boat driver all day consuming zero alcohol. Knowing it would take over an hour for the truck to be at the boat ramp I let a friend who had also not been drinking drive. He wanted to play around with it, well during this time period I had consumed two or three beers knowing i wouldn't be driving anymore. Truck gets to ramp, I jump in the water and pull boat on trailer. At this point, the driver had left since he wasnt needed. Then a game warden approached questioning the truck driver, (roughly 10-20 min conversation) saying it took him more than one try to back trailer and almost running me over. Driver gets DWI and i get BWI. no breath or blood taken. witnesses even say i didnt drive

Will I be taken into custody at an appearance for motion to revoke, class B (DWI) misd?
I have a court appearance coming up for motion to revoke. I'm currently unable to afford an attorney. Will I have an option for a court appointed? Also, will they take me into custody on site?

They could take you into custody if you have a warrant or the judge orders jail time as a condition of probation. You...

Pulled over and arrested for DWI in Carrollton, Tx.
Police officer followed me from a Race Trac parking lot, because I was looking down while sitting in car. Thought I was doing something illegal. He follows me for about a mile. I come to a red light that was turning green and rolled over white line to take right turn. He pulled me over, searched vehicle, no drugs or empty alcohol containers. Sobriety tests performed, had a broken foot, 32 degrees outside and asks me to remove my house slippers. Performed test on slanted surface at same time suffering from severe anxiety attack and diabetic. Took breathalyzer and read .10 and was arrested. Refused blood test on site, but at police station they drew blood and test was .07. Should I obtain an attorney who specializes in medical conditions and falsely accused DUI's?
Absolutely, there are some legal issues there that need to be addressed with a defense attorney.
If I win at the ALR hearing for no reasonable cause to stop me, will they still go ahead and charge me with DUI?
If I spend my money on attorney for the ALR I won't have it to pay attorney for DUI charges. If I can win at the DUI for no reasonable cause to stop me will they then not charge me for the DUI. DUI charges have not been filed yet.
Yes. The criminal and administrative cases are separate. The outcome of one does not dictate the outcome of the other....
Why should I subpoena the arresting officer to ALR? Won't they bring him as their witness? can't I ask him questions.
I think they will bring the officer as their witness to the ALR hearing. Can they just use his arresting report and narrative without him being there? Am I safe in not subpoena him, because he sure got part of it very wrong and he needs to be there so I can challenge his report.
You have this all wrong. The report comes in without him and everything in it is assumed to be true. There are some...
