I got arrested for the first time in my life somewhere in CO (only have had a couple speeding tickets and nothing else prior) and I am twenty-five. I was spooked as I passed a Sheriff going the opposite way when I saw him turn around on the road a hundred yards behind me and I turned into a driveway which gave him suspicion to follow me. The Sheriff arrested me on DUID for being high on Meth and false plates on my car. I had insurance. I went to jail for the weekend until I could post bail. He said he could smell it and I agreed to take a UA at the station. He had me do a test where I stood with my feet together outside, head tilted way back and tell him when 30 seconds was up. They searched my car without consent, but I had nothing on me or in my car. This is first time arrested.
I'm not sure I see a question here. You might want to rephrase.
I am a middle aged woman, do not drink very much or very often and was pulled over. My husband was intoxicated, argued with the officer and I was deemed drunk. I felt antagonized by the officer and confused as to why he was arresting me as I was not intoxicated. I thought if I took the breath test I would only make things worse. When the office told me to sign the paper saying I was refusing the test, I did not read the paper as I did not have my glasses and thought the officer was telling me the complete content of what I was signing. Is there any way to keep my license. I have never been arrested, have no recent traffic violations and need to drive to make a living.
Probably not. Ignorance of the law is not a defense or excuse to prohibited conduct. The fact that you signed the...
I got pulled over on suspicion of DUI. I passed FST, PBT, blew .000 BAC. I did have prescription ambien, but it was in the lower end of the therapeutic range. As of now, no conviction. I am worried about this affecting my military career.
Hire an attorney ASAP. You may be able to still do an independent blood test to quantify the amount of ambien in your...
I called Denver Health with a few questions about their consent form and DUI blood draws. I was under the impression that signing or not signing the consent form made a difference, but the lady I talked to says it doesn't matter - what matters is if DPD requests a blood draw and the person is receiving medical treatment they have to consent. This can't be right, can it?
I believe that you are right and the Denver Health person is wrong, IF the event dictating the draw is a standard DUI....
I'm on a deferred sentence for a DUI. Never have failed my blow machine. I am doing great with my randoms and probation. Worried I might get in trouble now...DL revoked....even jail??!!
There may be a problem with your Interlock. Write down everything you ate or drank or were near to during that three...
My probation is through RMOMS and i got my DUI in Arapahoe county. My PO told me i can stop calling the UA line after i drop my next one, and to meet her in a couple months. Will there be an exit UA?
I am not licensed to practice in Colorado, but from your question it appears that the meeting in a couple months may be...
I passed every test he had, but I take prescription Ambien. There was ambien in my blood, at the lower range of the therapuetic level (80 ng). I have been on ambien for close to a year. I did not hit any objects, I did not fly off the road, and I was completely coherent and alert. The officer though argues that I was driving under the influence, that is impaired. I do not think I was impaired. I was not stumbling, my words were not slurred, I was not 'sleep driving', and, given how long I've been on ambien, I've built up such a tolerance that 'impairment' would be a moving target. I was going over the speed limit. Still- I was completely coherent and cogent during the entire time. The hospital staff that observed me also corroborated this, as did my landlord that was awake and saw me
Hire an attorney if you want to fight the charge and have a chance to avoid a conviction.
