DUI - first DUI did AEP now arrested second DUI but I wAs not drunk - town Waterford - Waterford pd --- blew 0.06 -- clark lane
Set the scene. November 28. -- 6pm 30 degrees outside --side of busy road- I had just left a friend needing a ride involved in a disturbance. Some guy tryattack me. So I left immediately, They called in my plate number. I was pulled over told the entire story from my perspective. Did the field sobriety test and failed told the officer I had foot ball injury in my knee. Was arrrested and charged with OUI. I submit to breathlizer. First run 0.0606 -Second run 0.0644 that's well below the legal limit. I told the office I had a margarita during dinner around 3. After my first DUI I would never drink anything over two drinks tops If I had to drive and I was arrested anyways. So I'm extremely FUSTRATED. I would like to sue the PD for wrongful arrest. Here's the kicker my Asthma medication was in my car. That was towed and locked unable to retrieve. I suffered a massive asthma attack that almost left me dead gasping for air being sufficated from the inside not able to get to my inhaler during the middle of the night. So I just was relased from the hospital. Relased from prison at 11pm . Arrested at 6am. Breathlized at 7. Kept for 4 hours. I'm dissapointed in the system.Thank you

In CT can a third party tip lead to OUI with out the officer viewing erratic driving or swerving ?
Charge OUI - officer just pulled me over based on citizens tip. Failed the field test -- blew 0.0644 next blew 0.0606. Sounds like a complete violation of my 4th admendment right.
Unfortunately you're wrong . A 3rd party tip is perfectly ok and you can get pulled over . I'll guarantee that the...

Failed urine test in treatment while on probation
Been on probation for a few months for a dui. They placed me on scadd, which is for alcohol and substance abuse. They gave me a urine test when I went in for evaluation, I apparently tested positive for thc, smoked almost a month ago. Gave clean urine to probation my first time there and just wondering what is going to happen when I see my p.o next week.
Probably nothing will happen if your second test was clean and you explain that the first test was positive because of...
Will I lose my cdl for life?
I got a DUI yesterday in my car and currently hold a cdl. I also had a dui when I was 19, 8 years ago. My first offense I went thru alcohol classes and thought that it was taken off my record, and did not hold a cdl at that time. I know that a second offense for cdl drivers is a disqualification for life. Am I going to lose it?
I can't answer your question. There are not enough facts. Maybe you have a defense to the new DUI charge. You have a...
Can the court find you guilty of 2nd D.U.I without a B.A.C.? Can the court access medical records and get doctors to testify?
I got into a single car accident six months ago, I fractured my ribs, face, and spine in 3 places and had spinal fusion, along with severe head trauma and brain bleeding. don't remember but i Refused a roadside sobriety test (Dmv suspeneded 3 years) due to my injuries I wasn't really able, but in my stooper told the cop I had been drinking. the officer didn't get a warrant for my B.A.C. as required because I said that. I've been going to court for 5 months, and they can't get results on me from hospital, pretty sure my lawyer asked them to look at this as my first and judge is considering. I'm aware dmv will still consider this my second. I asked "why we weren't fighting it" and my lawyer said "they could bring in doctors from hospital who will say I was intoxicated an the on call officer

Received out-of-state driving suspension due to DUI, and wondering if I can drive in home state.
I have a CT license, and received a suspension in RI for first offense DUI. I realize CT will be notified of this through the compact agreement and may suspend my CT license. Will I be notified by CT if they do suspend my license, or should I assume it is suspended in CT due to RI conviction? to be more concise: can i drive in CT until I am notified otherwise?
Yes, but make sure they have your current address. Periodic checking on the status of your license is advisable....
