Is there anyway i can challenge a plate impoundment?
Six days ago a friend and I got pulled over in my car, he was driving, and he got arrested for a DUI. The officer impounded my plates. I got the 45 temporary pass. But I am curious if there is anyway I can challenge this so I can get regular plates back. They say I will need the whiskey plates for a year. And I researched an administrative review but since I was in the car, I don't believe I can do that. I understand I was in the car and it was my car involved, but I have a clean record. So I don't understand why this should affect me for the next year. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Contact a local attorney. Many things can be challenged, but the procedures are complex. Minnesota is surely punitive...
First time dwi probation
22 months of 24 months probation with no violations. But may have failed a urine alcohol test what is common for a first time violation? Like I said pretty much 60 days left of probation. Drank a few beer on Monday night football and had a etg test Thursday afternoon first test i have had the whole 22 months. may have failed. Would like to avoid jail time so I don't loose my job.

I was charged at home with a DUI. I had officers come because my 19 yr old son was beating on me. How can they do this?
It was a family squabble gone wrong. I was beat on by my son so I had cops called. They arrived and believed they needed to charge me with DUI. I was seen later by doctor, saying I suffered a concussion from the beating (12 stitches also). I was not driving but now they are using my wife's statement against me. She is angry I had cops called on the boy. She says I was driving around my yard and a brief time out on the rural highway. Can her statement be used? Can my statements on scene be thrown out due to concussion? Can I get this dismissed?
I would suggest contacting an experienced DWI attorney to discuss all of theses matters. Don't delay as you have time...

Blew a .09 in Minnesota. Never had ANY priors of any kind. 27 years old, married w/a kid. Any way of getting this DUI reduced ?
I was pulled over by the cop because he said I was driving to fast on a curve. The cop never said how fast I was going. I was drinking, only had 1 and a half drinks in an hour and a half time frame. At the station I blew a .09. I have never had any DUI before or anything criminal on my record. The cop even said he would put in a good word for me because I was so polite and nice. Under these circumstances is there any way to reduce the charges down to a careless driving ticket and/or prevent my license from being taken away from me for the next 90 days? Any flea bargins would you suggest I try to do? I live in a small town near the town listed, so just the humiliation of being named "the drunk driver" is already the worse thing to ever happen to me and I definitely learned my lesson.

On a 4th Degree Misdemeanor DWI is the officer suppose to shut of his flashing light when you are doing a field sobriety test?
Also are they suppose to show you what you blew on the site? Is there a rule on how long before they can administer the next intoxillizer test at the jail? Also there were 2 passengers in the car (They weren't charged w anything) however the officer never once followed me. He flipped on his Cherries 30ft before I pulled into my driveway. He made a lot of false reports on where I was driving and why he pulled me over also he has a passenger listed who was never even in the car or seen through the whole incident. Does having witness help me prove his report is inaccurate? Should my lawyer request the dash cam? i know for a fact he never followed me! The first time we saw headlights was after we pulled on to the gravel cullisac and had already drove 50yards.
There are several questions here, and I'll try to answer each of them: Flashing lights during sobriety test -...
