If the arresting officer told me to drive home without a valid license due to his impatience could this be used against him?
My boyfriend was pulled over for allegedly running a stop sign and charged a dui 0.12. I was in the passengers seat and observed the whole thing. First of all he did stop at the stop sign. Neither of us understood why we were being pulled over. Secondly, the officer stated at least two times during the night he was in a hurry and didn't have time for this. He didn't allow us time to look for our registration and insurance which was in the car and he got impatient while I was calling for someone to pick the car up and asked me to drive it home myself with no license.
