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).
Were you court-ordered to install the IID? Has Connecticut rescinded your driving privilege or suspended your license?...

Will this DUI charge stick as I was home and nowhere near my vehicle when police came?
So here's my situation, I hit a parked car right by my home and left it parked in a lot next to where I live. I was home for about 20 min or so (washed up) when Police came and brought me out to my car. The Officer asked if I had been drinking to which I replied "I was drinking at home" the Officer then did his sobriety test and proceeded to place me under arrest (no Miranda rights until I was already at the station.) The Officer stated that he called malarkey because it takes 30 min for alcohol to be absorbed by the body and that my eyes were glossy?? Anyway, I refused breathalyzer & blood work. When I obtained my Police report alot of areas were literally whited out and said I was only being charged with evading. Then when I went to court the prosecutor had a totally different report charging me for possesion of marijuana (under legal limit CT), evading, failure to maintain lane, and DUI
This is not TV drama. This is real life. "will the charges stick" is a question only asked in a fictional show by a...
