A person was stopped for this, and then arrested for DUI. The weaving was done before any consumption of alcohol as well. So will the DUI stand up in court, if the illegal lane usage citation is not legal?
It will be up to the prosecution to prove its case. Hire a good DUI defense attorney and go to trial.

I have 2 years probation for A DUI.
Will i get drug tested during an in home visit or any visits to my p.o? The judge did not require drug testing / alcohol testing to be one of the terms of my probation only to complete 30 drug/alcohol classes and a victim impact panel.
I bet the probation order gives your PO the right to demand tests.
