I admittedly was drunk when I hitched a ride with my friend to another friend's place where I would reside for the night. We were following behind the aforementioned friend where my driver ran a red light. Shortly after we were pulled over (I in the passenger seat) about 3 blocks from our destination. My friend was asked a series of questions and then arrested for running a red light and "being rude to the officer". I was communicating with the officer and she told me that I may walk to my friend's place but that changed when her lieutenant arrived. I was given a field sobriety test and then arrested. I had given the officer the address of my friend's house a couple of times letting her know the proximity of the destination but it was to no avail. Neither of us were read our rights. Help?

I was arrested for DWI in Texas (I was 19 at the time and blew a .17). I have been given the option to serve 8 days in the SWAP program if I plead no contest to the DWI. My lawyer specifically said that there would be no probation, no ignition interlock device or portable alcohol monitor. I am wondering since I will not be on probation (my lawyer said I'm "done" after the 8 day program), if I can be drug tested for this program or if I could be drug tested when I appear in court to enter my plea of no contest
The short answer is that a court can always have you drug tested at any time while you're out on bond. One of the...
I don't see any restrictions on the Dallas County adult probation page about purchasing a gun. Was this something I was allowed to do? I purchased one this weekend at the gun show but was given a delay on my background check I'm assuming it was due to the DWI besides that charge I don't have anything else on my record. Did I just make a major no-no? Will my PO be notified?
That depends on a few factors, one of which is whether you are a convicted felon or previously found guilty of any...
My husband was arrested coming out of a convience store (not even in the car at the time) and was given a breathalyzer test which he passed but was still arrested. Yes he was possibly somewhat impared from medication but at the time he cooperated ,even with the blood test. He got a legitimate dwi 14 years ago and now everyone we talk to is saying we have to get an interlock device and he will still probably have to do a few days in jail because its his 2nd. We have also been told that theres a chance it could get knocked down to possible first offense? We are very confused and just wondering what to expect. Is there a chance it could get knocked down or is he looking at jail time and suspended license?
It is possible to be charged with DWI even though you through he blew zero. Intoxication can be proved through...
