Question about probable cause on a DWI?
I unfortunately was arrested for a DWI. I was followed late at night, by an off duty cop who was driving his own personal vehicle, a Jeep, with off road auxiliary lights on super high. He followed me all the way to my home. I felt extremely scared and didn't know who he was. He also was tailgating me extremely close. My security camera at my home captured him doing this. He apparently made a call (I don't know to whom as I never recd the reports or if there was a 911 call) and I subsequently was arrested for DWI by another cop. I wanted to find out if this would still constitute probable cause? He claimed that I was driving erratic, which I was definitely was because I was frightened out of my mind. I am female and live alone. He never identified himself so I was terrified. Thank you.
i would have to read the complaint. If it says that the arresting officer was informed by the other off duty cop that...

My car has been impounded in Stony Brook univ. by university police for the evidence of DWI. How do I free the car?
I was caught on 4/25 in university campus for DWI (0.10), and on 6/09, my case has been adjourned for probation for a year with several conditions to follow (I have a conditional license now)(Case was sentenced in Central Islip). I asked my attorney for freeing the impounded car for the needs of driving . Which he did mention that in the court on June 9th, when I was sentenced for the probation. However, I haven't heard anything about from the university police office (no letter from DA office yet). I would like to know an estimated time that the paper work from DA office will be sent to univ. police office. Or any paper work that needs to be done to free the impounded car by me or the attorney to the DA office? Thank you

I hired a DWI attorney back in Jan 2015. He is yet to retrieve all police records including witness statement. Is this unusual?
He originally was trying to make a deal with the ADA, but that fell through when the judge did not accept. It was for a conditional discharge. Nonetheless, I am anxiously waiting for the witness statement, they claimed they saw me driving; but when police arrived, my engine and car was turned off. I need to know how to approach my case and it's frustrating atty hasn't received papers yet. He also claims if we do not have them from the ADA, it may be beneficial to my Probable Cause hearing which is coming up in the middle of June. Could you please respond to both how long it should take to receive a witness statement, and if it is beneficial for my case, if they ADA does not turn over prior to my hearing? Thank you very much.
A defendant is not entitled to much discovery until trial. You get more in a dui case - you get the testing paperwork.
