My 80 year old grandpa got pulled over near his home in Walker W.Va.. He has alot of heatlh conditions that make him shake all the time. He just beat cancer with cemo therapy. A officer pulled him over and had him take a breathe alyzer which came back 1.38. My grandpa had only drank 2 beers earlier in the day. So i know he could not have blown that high of a number when he weighs around 170lbs. The officer arrested him. Well my grandpa has to walk with a walker when he is at home because of his age and medical conditions he staggers and falls into things. When they got him back to the police station they admiinsterd another breathe test that came back inconclusive. I am a private investigator in the state of West Virginia and was wondering how i can help my grandfather? Andrea

My girlfriend told me she needs to have a blow & go installed in a vehicle in order to obtain a drivers license. Back in 2010 her husband at the time jumped into her vehicle after drinking at a bar, he was only supposed to go to work an come home. When he didn't come home she went looking for him in his mother's car an found her car at a bar parking lot she entered the establishment. An arrangement was trying to be made to get home safely all tho two vehicles where at the business location. An argument developed while discussing the means to get home. An the 220lb husband jumped in behind the wheel an sped off. Wife gave chase.. a mile down the road husband rolls wife's car... Wife charged with PERMITTING A DUI. Lawyer beat the permitting charge but was charged with obstruction.

The state of WV dropped the permitting to drive at the court house, but dmv charged her, SHE didn't contrary it in time. This has been a few years ago. All she wants is advice on how to get her license back. Or asks someone to help her. She has told the dmv several times that she isn't married to the bone head any more so I don't see why I have to pay to have a blow an go installed in my vehicle for her when she's not the drunk, hee idiotic x husband is. This all cost her marriage an wants to take some legal action against WV. They did her wrong, an it's taken a heavy toll on her life an mine.
