Yes, enhancement is certainly a possibility if he's facing a felony DWI charge and has a prior felony conviction. It's...
But when I got out there is two lights back there and only one was out. I was drunk so my girlfriend was driving but we were in my truck and I had a beer in the truck so when I got out of the truck he questioned me and he asked me if I had anything in the truck he needed to know about so I told him I had the beer and he gave me a ticket for that I was just wondering if I had merit to fight this and the only reason I want to is the principle behind the matter because he was rude and I was being as nice as I could. And also will this go on a driving record if I have to pay it.

I need a Lawyer! I have a pending 2nd DWI charge. I took the field test. Refused the breathe and blood sample. Not sure if filed
I was put on 12 month probation for 1st DWI. Got 2nd DWI within year. Probation revoked. Went to court. 3 days jail time. Probation continues. I have an ALR hearing in January. Probation ends in June. I have a breathalyzer installed in vehicle suggested by D.A. I have completed my 24 hr Comm. Service for 1st DWI. I finished my IOP class. I still have DWI and VIP class to finish. Court costs, fines, and Probation Fines were behind. Since probation continues my first payment isnt due till December. I want to know how long till my 2nd DWI is filed and I recieve court date. I need a good lawyer to handle my case when the charge is filed. I also need a lawyer for my up and coming ALR hearing.

I have had 3 ignition interlock devices and 2 in-home units. Although no alcohol has been consumed, I have had 10 violations! My probation officer said that my probation has been revoked and I would have to go back to court. What are the chances and/or reports of malfunction?
Yours is an extreme example of a common problem with interlock devices. First, your idea of "alcohol" could be...
