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?

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

Can I sue the driver for the remaining costs to repair my truck since the driver was drunk?
I was at a stop sign when a drunk driver rear-ended me going 45 mph. He got arrested. The following day i went to my insurance and they said I only get $1000 back cause I have plpd. That's not gonna cover half of the damages. Can I sue the driver for the remaining damages since he was drunk? I've never been in a accident so I don't know what to do.
You can bring what is called a mini-tort action against the other driver in small claims court without an attorney, in...
Got an OWI, police had me do 3 breathalyzer tests all back to back, one after another. Aren't they supposed to wait 15 min?
At the station, the police had me take 3 breath tests right after another. Aren't they legally supposed to wait 15 mins in between each? If I got video evidence, can't this help me in court, or even dismiss the case?
Need more details and to review the video. Normally the multiple tests are for the prosecutors benefit, not yours....
Got an OWI, but was arrested and put into a cop car BEFORE I blew, and was later breathalyzed at the station?
The police didn't breathalyze me until I got to the police station. Are the verbal ABC and number tests enough to put me in handcuffs and take me back to the station? Or can I use this in court?
A PBT at arrest is not mandatory if there was probable cause to believe you were drinking. The test at the station in...
