Should I sue for an unnecessary DUI arrest?
Recently I was pulled over in a small town in Michigan. The officer alleged that I was "all over the road" and that was his reason for stopping me. After questioning me I was ordered out the car, given a field sobriety test (which the officer didn't think i did so well on) and then arrested for OWI. My PBT was 0.00, which led the officer to suspect I was on drugs instead. Once booked, I agreed to take a drug test and while the results are pending, they will be negative as I do not do drugs. I was simply in an unfamiliar area and my driving may have momentarily reflected that which resulted in me being given a ticket for "driving left of center" in addition to the arrest. I was also unnecessarily held for 12 hours due to the belief I was on drugs. While I am sure all charges will be dropped once my blood tests results come back, I am sure that I was profiled for being a minority in a upscale neighborhood. My driving and criminal record is (or was) clean, I have had no prior run-ins with the law. I would like to sue for wages lost that day and impound fees, but I really believe the situation was mishandled and I do not want to settle for an "oops". What should I do?
they might be liable to you for a false arrest. Your biggest issue isn't liability but if damages are sufficient to...
Still charged with DUI?
My Mother was visiting South Lyon MI and got pulled over for her tail light being out. A road side test was conducted and she failed her breathlyzer with .19 BAC. Cop told her that he didn't want to deal with her passenger (was passed out and vomited) so he was not going to arrest her but car was impounded. He gave her a ticket for Tail lights being out and improper turn. Will she still get charged for a dui if not arrested?
If there was no arrest and no evidentiary chemical test was given, it sounds like she may have dodge a huge missile....
When can I go for a hearing to reinstate my full license after entering sobriety court in MI for a 2nd dui?
Michigan Sobriety Court and license reinstatement. I received my restricted license after 45 days upon entering into sobriety court. The wording is a bit contradictory as to if it is a year from the date of the license originally being suspended (the standard for not entering sobriety court) or upon completion of the sobriety court itself. I'm looking at moving for a job opportunity once sobriety court is completed and it seems it would be much more beneficial to try for this hearing before I move. Any input on the matter would be much appreciated.
A quick way to know is to get your record from the Secretary of State. It will list your eligibility. Since you do not...
Can I sue a drunk driver that rear-ended me?
I was in an auto accident Sunday night. A super drunk driver hit me from behind very hard. Lots of damage to my vehicle. He was arrested on the spot and taken to jail. The police said it was not his first offense etc etc. They had me checked out in the ambulance but did not take me to the hospital. I am feeling neck, back, leg, and muscle pain. I went to a therapy doctor Monday who did x-rays and suggested treatment to correct my issues which will take a few months. I live in Michigan which is no fault state. I have full coverage and the person who hit me also has car insurance. Allstate has been handling my claim. I want to know if I can sue the driver who hit me? I am in some pain but more importantly I am not able to work my weekend job because it requires heavy lifting which I won't be able to do for the next few months
