When I got to the jail and I verbally protested his action(s), he then trumped up the charges, DUI, failure to comply (what), using profanity on a public Road? All I did was protest being arrested because I was not drinking alcohol, only sprite, I was not driving, only sitting, the vehicle was not even running. They took me to the jail and they stripped search me, they put me in a holding cell until next day. They taped a ticket up on the cell glass door that showed a DUI charge.

Does my son need to hire an attorney or is he OK to represent himself in this matter?
He was pulled over and given a dui because his car smelled like Marijuana. They did perform a field sobriety test but that's it. No blood tests or anything like that. He did plead not guilty because he says that he had not been smoking at that time. He said it could've been his coat that the officer smelled but it wasn't his car. Also, let me add that there were no drugs found in his possession.
He definitely need to hire a DUI defense attorney if he wants a realistic chance of beating the charge.
