Should I fight my DUI case?
I was recently arrested for a DUI after being pulled over into my driveway. I admitted to the officer that I had two glasses of white wine (Pinot Grigio) that evening, but I refused to take a breathalyzer test. The police also suggested that they smelt drugs, but I do not consume drugs. I allowed them to search my vehicle and nothing was found, of course. The officer did not maranda me but did proceed to throw me onto the concrete and shove my face into the ground as he handcuffed me, I was still not read my rights. I am being charged with DUI and resisting arrest, but I'm not understanding how any of this will hold up in court, should I fight it?
You should absolutely fight it. No question about it.
