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....
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.
I was pulled over for telling a cop that he was dangerously blocking an intersection. It quickly turned into me being in hand cuffs for refusing the field sobriety test (because of an injury to my leg). He marked on the affidavit that i refused all chemical tests and breath which is a lie, I never was asked. But now my case has been dropped and no charges have been filed. But I still have to deal with the DMV to get my license back. I know I'll be asked the question at the DMV when I go to schedule a hearing, do I want the officer present at the hearing?
ABSOLUTE ZERO WAY to be able to know if you should sub the cop to the hearing or not without looking at all the...
I was arrested for refusing a field sobriety test. I hadn't been drinking at all and yet I wasn't offered to do a blood or breath test. He marked everything as a refusal. And arrested me for a DUI. Yet, I was only charged with possession of a controlled substance schedule IV (that I have a prescription for). I checked online today where I would have originally had court if I was still in custody. It says "No charges filed case closed". I'm curious if that means I'm not being charged with a DUI and only the POCS. I would like to acquire the discovery to find this out. How do I go about doing this?
First, you would contact the DA's office to order discovery. Second, I am not convinced that your case is truly...
I got pulled over for telling a police officer (who was doing speed stops) he was blocking the exit and I thought it was dangerous (on video). Pulls me over right away and shortly wants me to do a SFST. I refused the because I just got injured from a gunshot wound and it would inhibit my ability to do the test correctly. I was instantly arrested. I would have gladly done a breathalyzer or blood test but I was never asked. (all on video) He eventually finds a Alprazolam pill in my pocket and charges me for a controlled substance. (I have a prescription). This was the only charge I physically got charged with. He said the DA will make a decision whether or not to charge me for the DUI. How long do I have until I know? How can I get my License back? My cell phone was also taken for evidence
You need to retain an attorney. You are being accused of at least one crime and you may face additional charges and/or...
