What is necessary to get guardianship of a dementia patient who is being overly medicated by her drunk husband?
My aunt was diagnosed with dementia and when she was still able to sign papers, her husband who drinks every single day, made her sign some sort of document that would make him the decision maker for all matters, I'm not sure how long ago. I believe she's been on medication for some time but since January she's been declining in her health by getting doped by him with higher doses of her 5-6 kinds of medicines so she can be"calmer". Both are in their 60's but she looks like in her 90's and it was alarming the way she is acting now as compared to January. To top it off, she has been unable to speak English to him and insists in using her native language to communicate. I also believe he carries a gun(not very positive about this). The family wants to bring her abroad for treatment but he says he's taking "good care" of her and is not allowing her to even go to a nursing home nearby. What can we do about it? We feel we have our hands tied but, something needs to be done in order to avoid a tragedy. Sent from my iPad

If an officer says "I think you're under the influence" when arresting someone for a DUI, is that probable cause?
I was pulled over for a cracked windshield.I gave the officer all of the required items. Another officer showed up while the 1st one was checking my info and writing me a ticket. The 1st officer comes & tells me to get out of my car and step towards the rear so I can sign my ticket. I was a lil shaky when I signed my ticket. Both officers started asking me questions about my past becauses i have a record. Then the 1st one asks if they can search my car and I tell them no. The 2nd one then asks if ill do a field sobriety test and again I say no. The 1st one says "that's just his nice way if saying you're doing the test." So I do the test. They didn't have the lil light to do my eyes so the 1st one puts his hand up to the side of my face instead. When the test was done they said my legs were shaking and my pupils stayed the same size. The 2nd one looked at me for a minute and then says "well, I think you're under the influence so im going to process you." They put me in cuffs and tell me they're going to take my blood at the police station which I did have drugs in my system. So did they have probable cause to arrest me?
