What Is a DUI Arrest?
A DUI arrest can be made when a person is found operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. You are considered to be over the legal limit if your blood alcohol concentration is .08% or higher. A police officer that finds an impaired driver will make an arrest when the police officer has enough probable cause to make that arrest.
How Is a DUI Determined?
When you are stopped while driving, a police officer will approach your vehicle and begin to make an assessment of whether or not you are impaired as a driver. From the moment the stop occurs, the officer will be looking for signs of intoxication. You may be asked to recite the alphabet, walk in a straight line, or perform a breath test.
What Is Probable Cause?
Probable cause is the reasonable grounds to make an arrest or cite the charges for an offense. When you are facing a DUI, it is important that the arresting police officer has probable cause to make a warrantless arrest. When we work together, we may find that the police officer did not have probable cause to make an arrest, and this could help your case. The evidence gathered is supposed to be obtained lawfully. If the evidence has not been obtained following the necessary procedures, it can be challenged in court. Our team of experts is great at determining whether the evidence was obtained lawfully.
