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...

You will need to take care of your open DUI case before you can get a valid license. Hire a lawyer in Illinois and do...
Pulled over for faulty license plate light. The Officer claimed that I was intoxicated on marijuana because me my eyes were red and he could smell it. Searched my person and took glasses away, did not search car. Had me do roadside test and I failed because I was "unsteady, had a low mumble voice, and had bloodshot eyes." Charged me with possession but literally did not even search my car or find anything. Arrested and jailed for the night. Given the situation I did not believe the officer had substantial probable cause to say I was intoxicated and request I do a blood test so i refused. I don't see the officer having any substantial proof to say that I was without a doubt intoxicated and no physical proof was found, just curious how much of a fight chance I have. Regards.
It's really hard to say what your options are going to be or how strong your case is without analyzing the police...
Im a 36 year old male thats never been convicted of anything or charged or in trouble with law. Was driving a car I just bought that day and feel i was dishonestly pulled over and treated like there next dui stop. I was honest and told them the two beers i had drank in a three hour period and even had the two empty bottles in the back seat that were sealable and was collecting. Also the officer wouldnt tell me if i passed my roadside tests. What would be the best advice please and thank y0ou
Retain an attorney. You need good solid advice that you can rely on. This is not the time to try to navigate the entire...
I did not get a form to request a hearing with the dmv.
I'm not clear what you are asking. I suspect that the reason the officer didn't take your license is because you took...
Received a UDD after I was pulled over in Boulder County in 2009. Blew a .031. I paid all fines, did the community service, took the class, I am now 24 and was wanting to expunge the violation/citation but was unsure what the process was. I found the forms that need to be filled out pursuant to 42-4-1715(1)(b)(I), C.R.S. Would greatly appreciate some council on what needs to be done and if it is worth paying $800-$1000 for an attorney to do so. Thank you!
