Is it possible to get charged with a dui from a skateboard, bike, etc.....?
What if you already have a dui or two or are currently on probation from a dui?
You can only get a DUI if you are operating a " motor vehicle." However, it is almost certainly a violation of your...

You have some money, so see if you can find a good attorney that will work with you on payments.
I know that WA state law determines who can see what on my driving record. What can potential employers see?
I have a Negligent Driving 1st Degree conviction that was reduced from DUI and recorded in 2008 through deferred prosecution (incident occurred in 2005). I just obtained my complete driving record and it shows up. Can potential employers see it?
Yes, if you can see it so can they. You may look into getting it expunged though. Contact a Seattle defense attorney to...
What do I do if I received a summons to appear in court for a DUI, but I have moved out of state?
I was just informed by my sister who lives at my old address in WA that a summons was sent to me. On 7/29/14 I was involved in a very minor accident. I was accused of a DUI. Blew a 0.00 and the sobriety test was "inconclusive" because a new medication caused me to have tremors in my legs. They took me to the hospital to get drug tested. I told the officer I did take prescribed medication that morning, which can cause drowsiness. I received a ticket for improper lane usage. Now, dated 11/10/14 I am required to appear in court on 11/25/14 for an arraignment on DUI charge. I live in Arizona now and have no means of getting to WA for this court date. I don't want a warrant for my arrest and I certainly don't want to be expedited to WA if I get pulled over here in AZ. What do I do?
If you do not appear for your arraignment, a warrant will issue for your arrest. Period. You could hire a criminal...
Can I be arrested for DUI while sitting in a restaurant? My driving was NOT witnessed by a police officer. Civilian call to 911
I was driving down the highway, not under the influence, I was texting. I know, that's bad... A civilian in a pickup was following me and used his cell phone to report me as DUI. I stopped to get something to eat and the guy followed me and parked his truck to block me in. I got out and he said that he was not going to let me kill anyone. I replied "OK" and went into the restaurant and sat down. After a couple of minutes a police officer came into the restaurant and told me to come with him on suspicion of DUI. I refused. I asked if I was observed driving erratically by a police officer, he said no. He then grabbed my arm, twisted it up behind my back and pulled me off my chair and walked me outside. I refused all sobriety tests and consequently spent 2 days in jail. I am out on $50K bail
If you had to post bail like that there is a lot more to this story
I missed my court date, dui case, what should I do?
Hey my name is Lukas and I missed my court date that was issued on the 8-21-14. The reason why I missed it was cause I though it was on the 8-28-14, this whole time and when I was going t call my attorney and I saw that it actually was on the 21. So what should I do now? Is there any way to get out of this mess? Or will I pay thousands of dollars for missing the court date?
Call your attorney. She/he should know what to do.
Will I be able to fight my case? who is a good lawyer for this?
About a month ago I was stopped for not driving with my headlights on at night, so I got pulled over, but then the cop asked me when I smoked weed the last time, and I said for about 2hours ago, so they did a test with me to see if I was sober or not, I did not pass it because I was so nervous but the police thought it was because I was high. at this point I was not even feeling the effect from the weed so then they took me to do a blood test. it turned out to be posetive, and I know that the thc stays in your system for a long time. so I got my first summon in a couple of days. I was also very honest with the police, and the police officer said he was going to work with me because I was honest. But what do you think will happen here, is there anyway you think that I will not get a dui?
It depends. Active THC levels of above 5 ng can make the case difficult... That is the legal level in WA. If course,...
