Detroit Law

Can i be charged with having a open container & a dui if i wasnt given a BAC test or a citation?
I was pulled over for improper use of a turn signal, when i stopped the cops asked almost immediately to search the car but never gave a reason. Nervously i let them search and they found a empty beer can under the front seat, but they let me go told me i would receive a ticket for the turn signal in the mail. Now im going to be arraigned for a open container & a dui.
You should immediately hire a lawyer, aas the facts you list do not support those charges. Avvo has them. Good luck.
How bad would dui look to an employer compared
To other charges such as theft, fraud, assault or simple possession. I have a dui under controlled substance charge. I do qualify for a diversion program and will be able to expunge it in a year but in the time being how bad will a misdeameanor charge (not conviction) look to an employer?
It is going to depend on the employer. Generally, felonies are worse than misdemeanors and convictions are worse than...
I was walking drunk and some cops drove me home, I believe they kept my drivers license but I woke up with no ticket.
The ID was expired but I had the document for temporary drivers license. * Also I'm not from Detroit I live in Canada but it would not give me the option to write that. Would the police have just taken my license to throw it out since it was expired? Thanks
It is hard to know what a police officer might do, but they should not have thrown out your license, expired or...

I received a DUI while on probation for public intoxication. What should I do?
I fell asleep in a cab and received public intoxication charge. I have been doing well on my 1 year probation. The last hearing the judge discussed letting me off early. Last night I was charged with a DUI for falling asleep at a stop light. I had a .14 BAC. How should I proceed? What is the worst case scenario? Best case scenario? Any advice? :(
Call an attorney ASAP. You are clearly headed for an OWI charge, and possibly a probation violation on the public...
