The police officer was so eager to get me he made mistakes and conducted a flawed examination for dui. He said my speech was slurred and my eyes constricted. I was not under the influence of anything but my blood test came back with less than 30 nanograms of nordaizepam and normal being 200 so anyone can see things don't add up.
While it sounds like you have a decent defense, you will still likely need a criminal defense/DUI attorney to present...

Busted my head on a rock and suffered a nasty head injury, the police were called by a friend when no one could find me, the police found me and took me to the hospital and had my head treated, I signed the BAC consent form while there but honestly had no idea what I was even signing. I had drank directly after the accident and know my BAC is slightly higher. While questioning my family that were I'm the room I learned the lab tech had cleaned my withdraw site with an alcohol swab instead of iodine, I've heard this can greatly change test results. My main question is, can I be held responsible for signing that consent with my head injury?
It sounds as if you have some valid defenses to the DUI charge. A DUI charge has to be based on alcohol you consume...
I was recently charged with dui/ poss of marijuana and not using a turn signal. I was parked when the cops arrived. So don't know how they got me for dui, plus i was not high, I occasionally smoke pot so it is going to be in my system anyway, took a blood test and im just wondering if i should plea not guilty, simple poss. is all that i should have been charged with one rolled up joint......... not dui i don't understand how they could do that.
You need to find out if there were active metabolites in your blood. See: http://www.colorado-dui.com/states/KY.html
My son who lived in Louisville Kentucky at the time got a DUI (after two beers), the officer said she pulled him over for speeding even though we know that wasn't the case since he is very very particular about speeding, it has & will never happen with him he is adamant about not speeding. He had just left to head home after a couple beers with friends and was cited for drunk driving. There was something not right about this case and we hired a layer but he did absolutely nothing. In any case he was working had no car & money was very scarce. We were not aware he wasn't able to attend classes, now he's home. He will be working shortly & is going back to school next semester. Please tell us what we need to do next & how to get this case closed & his license back. Thank You!
It sounds like his case was already concluded so all the arguments about whether he was actually speeding or drunk...
I am currently on Probation for a DUI in TN. My charges were dropped to Reckless Driving. I was given 6 months probation with one drug test but was given no date to take the test until my last call which was on Jan 14. During this call I was assigned a different officer as mine had taken vacation and informed I had 2 days to take the drug test. I smoked weed every other day the last week of Dec, the last time I smoked was Jan 3. I took my test on Jan 16 and am very concerned what will happen if I failed it. My probation is supposed to end in March with my last call being Feb 25. I do not know if I should call the lab and attempt to get the results so that I know whether I passed the test. What is the likelihood that I passed the drug test and if I did not what will happen?
If you have a dirty urine, that would be a violation of the terms of your probation. The prosecutor could make a motion...
Last month my probation officer said he was going to do a review on my case and see if I could see him less than once a month. I ended up failing my drug test. He told me he will have to write the judge. Does this mean I will be violated and if so will they arrest me when I go back?
It means he will submit a report to the judge describing what happened with your drug test. The judge may then find...
