A person leaving a bar was accosted by 2 men in the attempt to rob him. The intended victim fought with both and bar security intervened as the victim was getting the best of the 2 robbers and looked like the agressor. Bar security told the victim to leave the property and ordered the robbers to return inside the bar. The victim tried to communicate that this was a robbery attempt. Bar security refused to listen as intended victim was intoxicated, and poor English speaking. Victim called police and then used phone to videotape the faces of the robbers. Bar security identified himself as a police officer. When APD arrived, they consulted with bar security and arrested the intended victim for DWI. No one listened to the badly beaten victim regarding the attempted robbery. What recourse?

My friend was pulled over last weekend in suspicion of DUI, but when he only took one shot and when he was tested at station, he got below the level of DUI but put in jail for a day anyways( which is possible I hear). My friend asked a lawyer to hear his case and his total lawyer fee amounted to be near 7000dollars. I felt bad for him getting pulled over, because he really was basically giving me a ride, but I don't understand how expensive this is. Is this normal????
The cost of handling DUI cases can vary greatly depending on where the case is pending, whether or not it looks like...
My boyfriend lost his license 4-5 yrs ago due to DUIs (I'm pretty sure it's suspended). He is now in the process of getting it back. How can he get the financial hardship waiver for the ignition interlock without having to get a lawyer? Also, are these waivers city or county specific? Because he had a lawyer for a separate case and the lawyer got him a waiver, but it was for a different county. And said if he got the correct city he would have to charge my bf. If that's the case, how can he find the correct city on his own? thank you for all feedback
