Can my 33 year old son be charged with DUI Other without having a drug screen taken?
My son was arrested for DUI/careless driving. He was stopped at a stop sign and when turning, a police officer who drove by said he swerved while turning. He was taken to the police department and given a breath test 3 times and all results were .5. While at the police office, 4 police officers were questioning him and asked him if he took any kind of medication and what it is. He told them yes and what it is because he thought he had to since they were police officers. My son is now on disability because of a calcified spine and other severe spine problems, and also, under psychiatric care for extreme anxiety and bi-polar. He did not take any meds before going out, and the guidelines say, "do not take until it is known whether or not it will impair the ability to operate machinery." He was not given a drug test, but an officer called us after his release and said his ticket was changed from dui/careless driving to dui-other because of what he told them about the meds he takes and that he loses his license for 90 days. Is this legal, or grounds for dismissal of the charge? He has no arrests in the past 5 years minimum.
