Will a dui affect me from becoming a police officer? The dui has been sealed & I completed the alcohol education program ?
Terrible decision to drink and drive after celebrating the expectancy of my daughter at my Jack no Jill baby shower . I got pulled over and arrested for an OUI getting off the exit to my house . I am 24 years old , never have been in trouble prior (not even traffic violations) , graduated college with a BA in criminology, interned with a police department , as well as with the city im applying for in the chiefs office (for fire dept), and even got the case dismissed after completing AEP 10 months early. I took 2 classes a week for 5 weeks instead over a 10 week course to speed the process up.I was supposed to wait until The early fall of 2018 to have the case dismissed and statutorily sealed; but to show how serious I was and that I learned from this shameful and embarrassing mistake I requested a motion to dismiss the charges upon my completion of the program using self representation . I have even tried to volunteer at MADD to help prevent others from making the same mistake as myself . Moral of the story do I have any chance on getting on with this department ? i also haven't had a drink since and don't plan on too... any chance ? And any advice ?

Did the police officer have reasonable suspicion to pull me over? Can my DUI case be dismissed?
Argument with boyfriend - He called police and claimed I was "intoxicated, out of control and violent." My friend passed away earlier that day & I was on the phone while he was trying to sleep. He became irate & screamed at me which person on other end heard. I began yelling at him for it & arguing continued. He called police. I just needed to speak to my friends so I left the apt. He called police back to say I left & was driving drunk. I passed a police car who was driving into in our apt complex while I was driving out. The officer notes in report that he heard from dispatch that i left the residence. He then turned around to follow me onto the main rd. I did not make any traffic violations or swerves - none are mentioned on the police report and none are noted on my ticket which solely says DUI. The police reports states the officer was making an "investigatory stop." Another set of officers went into the apt while I was being pulled over and their report notes that boyfriend said the altercation was "verbal only" & that the apartment was in order & no signs of damage or physical altercation. Neighbors told police they heard me yelling. Thank you for any advice.
The police had a reasonable suspicion that you were driving drunk based on your boyfriend's telephone call.
