DUI charge without implied consent, breathalyzer, or field sobriety tests
My husband was pulled over after an officer attempted to pass him. The officer stated my husband almost hit his patrol car as he passed him. My husband was asked to exit the vehicle. He was given only the eye test. The standing/walking test was not given. The officer arrested him stating he failed the eye test and had blood shot eyes.

Server's potential liability for serving alcohol to drunk individual.

On the fourth I began to question how they were, but went ahead. As part of the conversation with I casually got at if they were driving and he was. When they ordered the fifth I talked to my manager and told him I did not want to serve another and he told me to serve. I tried to get him to serve it, but he wouldn't. A sixth was ordered and again I went to my manager with the same result. Two days ago a Marietta officer came to the restaurant and questioned me. I told the above, but my manager lied and said I never went to him. The driver was in a car accident with injuries. Yesterday a person came in and asked me questions that said they worked for the attorney of the guy that I served. Am I in trouble? Do I need an attorney?
