Can a cop forcibly extract a motorist out of their car for refusing to step out when ordered to at a D.U.I checkpoint?
There is no smell of alcohol, nor any illegal contraband in plain view. The driver is simply exercising their right to not answer questions and would like to be left alone and travel without government seizure of movement.
Is this a hypothetical question or did this really happen? If it's a hypothetical, I would recommend rather that the...
I don't want to install IID , what other option ( s) do I have ? . How soon can I get my license back ?
I am a resident of CT and have a CT driver's licence . Got a DUI in the state of Louisiana ( first offense ever , BAC of .12 ) in 2013. Refused breathalyzer test but later accepted giving Blood sample for chemical test. Pleaded no contest => paid court fees + completed community service hours + took required classes => got "motion of termination of probation " from LA court and a letter from NOLA DMV that my license ( driving privilege in LA ) has been reinstated. My attorney in NOLA is working on expungement of the record and expects to obtain such court decision by end of Sep 2014 ( note this is expected to seal the dui records). CT DMV has learnt about the DUI from NOLA DMV through ( Interstate Driver's License Compact).

Can DUI be charged after the fact, and how should guilty or not guilty be marked down on improper lane change ticket?
In a car accident on an Interstate highway, about 9:30 PM with clear conditions. Dozed off and hit guardrail. Didn’t hit any other car and nobody was in my car. EMS came and said to sit tight. Drinking was involved. State Police gave ticket on the scene for improper lane change. No breathalyzer was given at that time. Brought to hospital emergency room by EMS. Doctor took blood work and concluded Acute Alcohol Intoxication. Released after about 2-3 hours under relative’s care. Questions are whether the blood work information would be given to State Police or be factored in to ticket for improper lane change, and if ticket should be sent in marked guilty or not guilty. Thank you in advance for any advice.
If your blood indicated levels of alcohol beyond the legal limits, the police will seek to obtain said records and a...
