I left the scene of a minor accident (< $2500 worth damage). Driver of struck car reports (inaccurately) the make / model of the vehicle to Maine State Police. MSP issue a "BOLO" for the inaccurate make / model. MSP then contact a campground / resort (private land) & ask if a vehicle matching description had recently entered resort. Resort: "Yes." & Resort Security escort MSP to site where vehicle is parked. MSP approach parked vehicle (in driveway of private lot (i.e; lot owned by vehicle driver) on private land (Campground / Resort): find the driver sitting in driver's seat - no keys in ignition - charging cell phone & drinking Malibu rum. MSP never witness driving & saw drinking of rum on own property. Driver arrested: DWI (.275 BAC). Is this arrest legal??

What happens in court if a person is picked up on a DUI and is not a citizen but has a permanent resident card?
This person has lived and worked in the US for 30 years and has no former convictions. He is not working now because of a disability. He has a ME license . He was told he will lose his license for five months and will have to pay a fine of $500.00. This incident occurred near his home and the State policeman who stopped him said he had passed him at a stop light, which he didn't do. Then went on to ask why the lights were not on in his house. Apparently this officer had been watching him for some reason for quite some time. I don't understand why customs and immigration would have anything to do with this and it is causing him a lot of stress since his lawyer told him that. Can you give me some information on this? Thank you

I have waited the allotted time for my license to be released. The only thing is that MA wants $730 to release it. If Maine is going to make me get an interlock device, I'd rather wait and save my money. I know I have to be the owner of the vehicle and feel getting my license released may be just blowing my money when I could pay two months rent with it if I'm going to be required to jump thru more hoops for ME.
Since you are residing in ME you should either contact a local experienced attorneys that deal with drivers license...
My daughter, 43, was hit head on by a repeat offender drunk driver who was arrested at the scene. Both cars were totalled. She was shaken up, went to the ER, and seems OK. However, he was uninsured. We found out today that she has to pay for her rental car as she doesn't have rental insurance.. I am afraid that she will end up with too little money from her insurance to buy a suitable replacement car. She is a single parent of 2 girls and barely makes ends meet. I am nervous about suggesting a lawyer. How would she pay and we know the driver has nothing to go after.
She should consult with a personal injury attorney in ME. Most initial consultations are free and attorneys will...
