St. Amant Law

Deputy sheriff arrested my husband who was rear ended by another vehicle and got arrested for DUI after passing the breathalyzer
My husband was involved in a 3 vehicle accident. He was rear ended and the car was pushed towards a vehicle that suddenly stop in front of him. The airbags never deployed in our Mercedes and he hit his head and arm. I went to the scene to get my husband and to help him after I hear he hit his head. The deputy was trying to force him to write a statement. I told him that he had 3 surgeries on his wrist last year and that he just hit his hand again during the accident. I offer to assist to write the statement and he was rude to me. He told me that he needed to try to do it himself and asked me to leave and go to my car. There was other people with the person that rear ended my husband, but he didn't asked them to leave. We are assuming because they were black like the deputy. After he hit his head, the deputy use the breathalyzer on my husband, but not the person who rear ended him. Then he proceed to make him walk in uneven gravel. He passed 6 out of the 7 sobriety test. The only test he fail was the one in where he made him walk in uneven gravel. He arrested my husband for DUI and he spend 3 days in jail until the judge let him go on his own with no bond. The case got dropped.
I am pretty sure there is a question in there somewhere? I am sorry he was treated in such a manner. He may have a...
What is the process for if you get in a car accident with a suspected drunk driver?
I told the state trooper I thought he had been drinking and heard her tell the man it sounded like he was "slurring his words" when she spoke to him. I also included my suspicions in the witness report she had me write. I was issued a ticket for failure to yield and suspended license (was not aware it was suspended; unpaid speeding ticket from Florida) and then she told me I could leave. In the 30+ minutes she was there she had not given the man a field sobriety test or breathalyzer. Is this normal? Did she want me to leave so she could go investigate further without my involvement?
Up to the officer. Hopefully she persuaded him to take a blood test. If you were all over her maybe she just wanted...
What are my or my spouses legal rights if sex video was made while intoxicated and with someone other than spouse.
My wife suffers w/alcoholism for 10 years. She recently went on 4 multi-day binges this month. A 21yr man met her & provided & continued, on each occasion, to keep the influence going with alcohol and pot. Knowing her struggle w/this, she was married w/kids,suffered w/ depression & anxiety & offered to take her, rather than me, to rehab that I had already set up days before, yet he continued providing the substance until she went & all the while having sex w/ her under the influence. He welcomed her back each time & provided substance thru each binge. He made video w/phone & trnsfd to a friends. She recalls, but not to extent taken w/facial expression being the intent. What spouse/Individual rights are there? can we confirm/demand it's destuction? Is it legal consent? Do we have any right
IF the video was taken without her permission, I'd file a report with the police and hire a civil attorney to sue for...
