That sucks, don't expect the police to help. You need a lawyer. The cops couldn't care less.
I was charged for felony DUI & Test refusal and was not the inital driver of my vehicle. The police reports are also conflicting
I was a passenger in my own vehicle when a citizen reported my car swaying in the lane. The driver turned into a McDonald's restaraunt and I took over the driver side to see the menu and order. Just then I looked in the rear view mirror and the red lights were on us. I was told to pull over to the side and me and the driver switched seats again. I was charged as the driver going all over the road and failed my field sobriety test. After reading the police reports from three separate officers, the reports have conflicting information about who was actually behind the wheel at the time of the stop. Also I was on seroquel which is a strong anti-pychotic medication. I did not do the intoxilizer. Does it sound like I may have a chance to fight this?
Although Avvo is an excellent resource, this question is far more complex than this cite is designed for. In Minnesota...
Is there a way to fight a dui?
My father got a dui in August, he was sitting in his van with the keys in the ignition. The vehicle was off and he was not planning on driving. He was on the phone with my brother when the cops walked up on him, he was asking my brother for a ride. Is there a way to fight the dui? Or get a lesser charge?
There are a great many options and possibilities. The state must prove that your father was in physical control of the...
Tailgated by a police officer and it resulting in their probable cause for dwi arrest; unlawful restraint?
Cars are considered deadly weapons when fleeing (been a violent crime for a few years now). So, if an officer induced a driving error by following much to closely for a mile, could an unlawful restraint defense work? You can't speed up (you're going the speed limit), you can't slow down (you'd cause a collision), and you're terrified because if you have to make a defensive maneuver you'll likely also cause a collision. Thoughts?
Is this a hypothetical? It's unclear from your question whether something happened to you or not. Either way, the...
Girlfriend was arrested for a dwi in shakopee mn.what now?
She blew a .10 on the breath test on the 19 of september. The paperwork says that her licence will be revoked on the 26th. Can she have this expunged if this is her first offence? What can we do to have this resolved asap? Will she need to have whisky plates now? The officer on scene would not allow me to drive her car since I was not on the title. The fees and penalties are way above what she makes in a month, can there be a payment plan set up to pay them and will she be able to get a work licence to drive to work at all?
You have raised a lot of questions in your post as is common with DWI cases. Probably the best thing for your GF to do...

I was charged with a DUI. Will my drivers license be revoked if I was not arrested?
I am 18 and was charged with a DUI and a minor. I was not pulled over. My car died in the middle of an intersection and a cop saw and came to help. He had asked if I had anything to drink, I was honest and said yes. I agreed to take a breathalyzer and I blew a .04. On my ticket it does not say what my blood alcohol content was though. Is there a reason why it does not say what my BAC was?
With a .04 test result, chances are that you were charged with Underage Drinking and Driving, not DUI. It's a...
