Do I have a chance at fighting a DUI charge
I was arrested for a DUI recently with a .2 BAC. I understand how high that was but feel that was higher than what it should have been. As far as the circumstances that revolves around it goes, I was parked on the shoulder of a freeway making a phone call. After a few minutes, CHP pulled behind me to see what I was doing. I let them know making a phone call. I was outside the whole time as they pulled behind me and did not see me driving at all. I understand they can still get me for a DUI but it's a matter if it's worth fighting for to at least reduce charges imposed on me through claims that it should not have been a .2 BAC which was obtained from a breathalyser on the spot. Thank you.
Assuming you were alone and had no passengers, it will tough to beat a .20 BAC. You may have admitted to driving...
