In this episode of Legal Minute, our firm discusses potential driving under the influence (DUI) defenses.
If you have been arrested for a DUI, you may be able to build a defense based on the following factors: cause of the stop and cause of the arrest.
If an officer arrested you for a DUI suspicion, he/she must have a reasonable suspicion to have done so. This reason must hold up in court as well. Additionally, the officer must have probable cause for an arrest.
A DUI arrest is influenced by several factors with the most important being the field sobriety test. Field sobriety tests include a horizontal gaze nystagmus, the walk and turn, and a one-legged stand. If you pass all these tests and an officer still arrests you, the arrest could be proven invalid.
