I have an outstanding warrant for DUI in WA state but have since relocated to MA. I would like to fly home to visit my family...
...but am concerned about the possible flight problems I may have? Obviously, I cannot run from my problems forever; I am just concerned about the possible outcomes of flying.
Generally speaking, when you fly within the US there is no warrant check done (to my knowledge). However, you should...

Is it a good idea to go to trial for an oui if the police report says that I had been weaving in and out of lanes
I am not sure if I should go to trial or try to get the cwof. Has anyone ever beaten a case where the client was reportedly weaving? Also, I had not taken a breathalyzer at the station so there is no proof of alcohol.Also this is my first offense of anything, I have no record.
This is a question you should consult your attorney about. If you don't have one you should get. This may be a good...
I am a nurse in Massachusetts I just got arrested for a 3rd oui offense. My prior offenses were 27 years and 19 years ago.
I did not take the breathalyzer. I did take one at the site and it was a 0.8.
Although your offenses were 27 and 19 years ago, Massachusetts has a "lifetime lookback" law. Most District Attorney's...
If I'm pulled over,and TOLD,not ASKED,to get out of the car and take a field sobriety test, is the officer overreaching himself?
Officer demanded that I get out of my car and take the field sobriety test. I was never given an option (as I thought was required?). I was afraid that if I said no, I'd be spending a lot of time in jail. Also, he seemed young and likely inexperienced (no older than 26 most likely). I failed and was arrested regardless. He didn't want to hear about my ankle injuries, which were in a lot of pain due to the tests, and that combined with the fact that I was tired (hadn't slept in almost 24 hours) and EXTREMELY nervous (to which he inquired, "Are you always this nervous?" DUH!!), the grueling field test was failed miserably.
You are not required to take a sobriety test; refusal will trigger an automatic suspension of your license. You are not...
What chance do I have winning an OIU case in MA when I was not intoxicated or under the influence of Rx drugs I was prescribed by a doctor? I admit I was driving over the speed limit at 3:30am (and I hadn't slept in 24 hours, so I was tired), and the officer who pulled me over demanded I take a field sobriety test (instead of giving me the option which I thought he had to do?). I failed the 30 second "toe point" and heel-to-heel walk b/c of my bad ankles (he didn't want to hear about it). I am on Adderall and Klonopin, and the last pill I took was an Adderall at apx 3:00pm that afternoon. I wasn't OUI. Additionally, I offered to take a urine, blood and breath test twice and was ignored. So they don't have that as evidence and they didn't confiscate my meds. Do I have a strong case?
It sounds like you definitely have some strong arguments for the defense of OUI. Of course, the police report will read...
Recently arrested for and OUI at a level of .08, need license for taking daughter to school and work, how do i go about this?
I was at a level of .08 after the third road side test the officer made me do. I understand this is the min. and it is still considered intoxicated in law. However, I need my license for my daughter, work, and school. The officer had told me if I were to take this road test I could go if I passed, yet made me take it three times. At the station I refused the test there, for fear of losing any financial aid for my school, is this going to look bad in court?
Refusal is never good as the license consequences are harsh. You should contact an attorney to help you through this....
