Can a ca cop stop my car for a DUI if someone in a store called the police to say they thought I had been drinking.
The person in the store never saw me drink and never saw me drive. As soon as I was backing out of the parking spot the cop stopped behind me. The cop did not say he was pulling me over for a traffic violation. The person in the store was never called over to identify me. Can a traffic stop occur because of heresay? After I was taken into custody at the police station the blood test did show I was over the limit. The cop did not say I was breaking any traffic laws nor was anything wrong with my car. Can a judge dismiss this because there was no probable cause for the stop.
It sounds like the officers did not have any legal cause for the stop. A witnesses statement can be sufficient if...

I just got arrested on 10/12/13 for DUI this is my second offense. The first one was eight years ago.
There was a object on the freeway that broke the tire and then hit the metal curb guard (it was the connection of the 710 and 405) no collision with other car. I couldn't find my cellphone to get help and after waiting for a while and no one showed up to help I decided to walk. I was then picked up by CHP on the 405 freeway about 1.5 to 2 miles from the car. Accident happened about 2:00 am picked up by CHP close to 3:45 am. Booking time 4:39 am in Long Beach City Jail. What are my options? Thanks for advise!

when your turn yourself in, i know you have to stay in jail before you go to the judge. when you go before the judge do you get jail time added for your original case for the dui. lets say the judge gives me 180 days in jail. and for the failure to appear how much jail time can be added for the FTA? what is the usual FTA sentence that a judge can give you?
You don't ever have to go to jail, possibly. If you get your warrant recalled and quashed, you may not have to do jail...
Hi guys, I received my first DUI in San Diego. I have my arraignment in one month. Will not be able to afford a lawyer. Go to school in Los Angeles. Intent to plead guilty (or no contest if available), but would like to request dui classes/probation/ etc. to be served in LA. Should I write a letter to the San Diego court explaining this prior to arraignment. Ready to accept full responsibility as soon as possible to start getting back on the right track, but need to know best possible way to approach this. Should I attempt to get a public defender in San Diego? Any advice helps...
Speak to the public defender and if you qualify then use them. Don't do this on your own because the judge must...
I refused to take a breathalyzer & blood test. How can a lawyer help my DUI case? Can I get it reduced from a misdemeanor?
The CHP officer that pulled me over told me that i got pulled over for switching lanes without signaling and for almost cutting off a car. He told me that I smelled like alcohol and asked me to take breathalyzer test and or blood test, but I refused to take any of them. I was taken to jail and released after about 14 hours. I'm currently in school to become a special ed teacher. A misdemeanor would completely throw me off track for a few years. Is there any possibility of getting the case dismissed or dropped to an infraction? I'm not sure what to do. Any advice would be great, please help me. Thank you
There are a lot of factors that go into getting a case dismissed or reduced. You also have to worry about the DMV...
