Can a police officer pulled someone over because they suspect you have a suspended licence?
My daughter was followed by a police officer who passes her. While passing her he looked over to see who was driving, then pulled on the shoulder of the road, let her pass by, then got behind her and pulled her over. When he approached the vehicle he asked her if she was Morgan, which she was. He preceeded to say he pulled her over because she had a suspended license. He then charged her with 6 charges that were all related to driving on a suspended license.
He can do that. His vehicle has a "tag reader." It scans the tags of passing cars. When it gets a "hit" that the...
US citizen living internationally with FTA for DUI coming into country in a few weeks.
I was charged with DUI in 2008, moved out of state for a job and school, issued FTA bench warrant. Flew out of the country and back in twice with no problem (into my new state of residence far away from arresting state) and flew domestically twice with no problem (from new residence state to arresting state and back) with no problem. However, this time I'm flying from international to arresting state, will be going thru customs and immigration outside of arresting state and then immediately continuing to arresting state by way of domestic flight. I don't think I have time to contact an attorney and file for the warrants to be lifted before travel, it's been 6 years since warrant issued, what do I expect?
It is possible that you could be picked up on the warrant and incarcerated until you could make bail. Your bail might...

No court summons issued for DUI/DWI
My boyfriend was arrested for DUI/DWI and driving on a suspended over a month ago. (he actually was not drunk/hadn't been drinking, i swear). They took him to the station, he signed some papers and then the officer brought him home. Shortly after he recieve a court date for the driving on a suspended but not the DWI/DUI. I checked court records on line and they have the DWI/DUI listed as active but with no court date. Why? What should he do, we don't want to ask the court and remind them in case they just forgot
He needs to get a lawyer. He also needs to appear for all court dates. So he needs to show up for the suspended driving...
What are the most common outcomes of a first time DUI/DWI in the state of Maryland?
I have been charged with a DUI and DWI, it is my first time offense and besides this charge I have a clean record. I can not afford a lawyer so I will be representing myself. I just wanted to know what to expect or any actions I can take to get a lesser sentence.
If you cannot afford a private attorney, contact the Public Defender at least 10 business days before the court date....
What can I do about a noisy drunk neighbor?
I have a very loud across the street neighbor, he is in his mid eighties, he is so loud I can hear him hollering across the street with the windows closed. Lately he has been getting drunk and stumbling in the street, and recently invited a young seedy couple to move in with him. Well tonight (about 10:45 pm) he was drunk and tried to punch the man, and was yelling at them while they tried to escape in their noisy beater of an SUV, in an attempt to get away they tried to drive off while my neighbor hung on. Luckily he was dragged about 10 ft. and let go, only to fall into our ditch headfirst, then he got up and stumbled back into his house. I am ready to scream at him, but that wouldn't get me anywhere. We've had to call him in due to prior noise disturbances and elder abuse towards his elderly neighbor. My question is what can I do?
Call the police when things like this happen, if only for a welfare check. Drunk in public, noise nuisance, assault are...
