In VA: I failed a start up test on my interlock (DUI 2nd in 5 to 10, 2nd being in 2008). Right after, it passed me.
I failed a start up test, it locked me out for 5, then retested and I passed. Got to my destination and cut car off, restarted and I passed again. I have not even had device for a month yet and now this and I have not drink anything at all with alcohol, no meds, nothing. Is this is violation and will I get interlock extended, court again, etc? This is completely nuts. I did replace mouth piece and now seems to be working fine. But I can't keep having this happen since obviously this is a false+.

Alright I was charged with dwi and marijuana possession, searched, and no miranda rights.
After a sobriety test, the officer asked me if he'd find anything illegal, I said no, he then felt my pockets and pulled out a baggy of marijuana, I didn't consent to a search, and I thought they couldn't take out my personal property without asking ME to do so, (unless it be a weapon) , I showed no sign of danger that would even provoke him to search me, he placed me under arrest and stuck me in the cruiser without reading me my rights THEN asked me to consent to a drug test, which ("not knowing my rights to silence" I agreed to... is there a case here?

Can I be convicted of DUI as a passenger if vehicle was already stopped and me and the driver had already exited the vehicle
My girlfriend and I pulled up in front of house. She(driver) and I(passenger) got out and began to unload groceries etc. when police pull up and immediately come after me, assuming I was driving. Apparently she was driving with her headlights off leaving the store about 1/4 mile down street. I feel like because I smelled of alcohol and was a little obnoxious that they were determined to arrest me. Driver Can and Will testify to driving the car. First I wasn't driving, 2. Car was parked, 3. Not running, 4. No keys in ignition. 5. Neither my self or driver were in car. It feels like officer made a big mistake but once they determined I had been drinking all I could do is try my best to stay calm and cooperate as best I could.
Can you be charged? Yes! Can you be convicted? Yes!!! Can you fight it?? ABSOLUTELY!!!. This isn't baseball....
