Age:19 Was passenger in vehicle and pulled over for a headlight out. Almost empty bottle of wine was rolling around on the backseat floor (less than 2oz.) the bottle was from a previous weekend camping after cleaning up recyclables and bottles from large college group. Friend and I did not realize there was anything left in the bottle (thus it rolling around on backseat floor) both blew 100% sober. I claimed the bottle as my own seeing as I picked it up from the campsite ( I wanted to paint it and make it a vase) and was written a ticket for open intoxicant in vehicle passenger. I have no priors, not even a speeding ticket. Have never been pulled over before even. Full time student and employed full time as well. Good GPA. Looking for advice as I've never been in a situation like this.

I was pulled over for loud exhaust and seatbelt. The officer told me he had no driving history but smelled alcohol. I passed all but balance sobriety tests (diabetic and don't have good balance) I assume I was border line on the nystigmus test as he performed it 3 times. The pbt result was .082. Because if the diabetes they wanted blood which I submitted to. I asked for a second pbt for my own knowledge at the hospital. The officer agreed and the results were .066. I know blood is often a little higher than breath. I asked for this because I monitored what I was drinking as I made changes in my life and never wanted to repeat the mistakes I made 5 years ago. My blood came back at .102. Have any of you seen this with your bariatric clients before? After official results I will hire a lawye.
It may have nothing to do with your medical conditions but rather a rising blood alcohol content. I'm guessing it was...
I had a DUI when I was 22, and just got pulled over for a OWI, and I am now 47. I blew a .22, I am guessing this is a super drunk and was wondering if I should get a court appointed attorney, and if the Judge will say I need the ignition interlock on my vehicle.
Yes! Hire a local OWI lawyer ASAP. I have on several occasions been successful in convincing a prosecutor to reduce a...
Pulled over for traffic violations and had been under the influence. WI law states anyone with BOC of .15 or higher, mandatory to have the IID in vehicle. Wanting to know what the IID and fines are going to cost and will there be any additional fees from MI?

I recently got an OWI in Wisconsin, but I am licensed and live in Michigan. I received a letter from WI DMV stating that my license is to be suspended for 6 months. Does this apply to my license in Michigan? And if so, how will I know when and for how long it will be suspended for here? I know I can fulfill all probationary requirements in Michigan, but I didn't know what would happen to my license since the suspension is not issued through the state in which I reside and have a license in. I have not been to court yet for this matter.
Chances are Wi will report the OWI to MI, since you are a MI licnesee. Mi will treat it as if the OWI occurred there....
