From .05 to .08 in the state of Alabama it is up to the officer to determine if you are able to drive safely. Some people can't handle thier alcohol and can't function at .05 which is usually two to three beers. If you are underage, the DUI law is totally different. The best thing to do is don't drink and drive. Then you want have to ask or complain about going to jail.

What about the officer who arrests people for .02 and .03? And it wasn't me that was arrested. I don't drink and drive. For those of you that think it's okay to have a beer with dinner or drive the day after you drink, you better think again because Ft Payne does whatever they please.

Was a friend who had some beer the night before and registered below either of those numbers.

I am not taking any sides. I have to look at both sides. Maybe this person didn't pass the test given and this is what the offier uses to determine if you are capable of driving. I have heard and seen of people failing the tests and being arrested for DUI and then blowing .02 at the station. It happens. Some may mix the alcohol with medication or something and this causes an adverse effect. All I can do is speculate to what happened. The officer obviously saw something. I don't know. Has this went to court?

No medication involved and the officer told 2 different stories at to why the car was stopped, one to the driver and a different one to wife

I have inner ear trouble and probably couldn't walk straight line some days so I guess if I ever get pulled over I can expect to pay a tow bill and court costs

Some are saying that the fort payne police officers are disgusted with their new chief. some say that city hall has turned a blind eve to the conduct of the cheif of police. this may be a rumor maybe one of the fort payne policemen will read this and explain the problems going on there.

Being disgusted with him is not a good reason to treat people wrong. If you want respect you have to be respectful.

The police chief and Asst. Chief are what officers call "yes" men. They were placed in the position by the council to do whatever they want. Officers don't like when politians put their two cents worth in without knowing anything about being an officer.

Fort Payne police are a joke. They sit around looking for things to write you for. Come on give us a break. I know one cop who drinks like a fish out of water and drives. Is he above the law... no.
