Sikeston Law

He smelt alcohol in my breath (I presume this allows for detention). Initially he asked for a breath test on a portable device, I politely refused. He administered 4 FSTs, 2 standardized. (HNG, reverse counting (104 to 56), alphabet starting at E, 1 leg balance). I'm certain that I did well on all tests except for having to set my foot down on the balance test after roughly 20 seconds. This is only 1 sign of the 4 signs; 2 signs are required to establish probable cause if I recall correctly. I was given implied consent warning in the squad car, implying a breath test would be taken on the portable breath test. I thought portable breath tests were only used to establish probable cause so I refused. Was he digging for probable cause? Or did he already establish enough to arrest me?
A review of the entire arrest affidavit would be needed to figure out your concerns about probable cause. I suspect...

In Missouri on 10/05/14 I was in a parking lot of a motel when police pulled in and utimately took me in at approximately 1:30 or so am. Several civial rights of mine were abused. I was charged I thought with a DWI according to the county court there are no charges pending a court date as of yet 1/11/14. I instanty moved forward with a restricted licence and satop as well as the interlock. I called the licence bureau interactive response hotlime and it states I have no pending or action against my license. My question is can i legally remove this interlock or do I just leave it on for the 6 months. I am not trying to bring any attention to myself and I am seeing the statue of limitations to be one year if I am correct. Any advise is appreciated. Thank you very much

The problem I have is I have almost 2000 dollars in court cost that I can't afford to pay all at once...I'm now living in another state(Missouri) and I was informed because it went to criminal court I have no other option but to pay it all before I can get my DL back.... Do I have any other options?
In my opinion, no. The court has sent a hold on your license. It will not be lifted until they are paid in full. Your...
I was homeless for a while and had fell asleep in my vehicle. It was freezing outside so the vehicle was running. The police came and woke me up, and had me do field sobriety tests. I passed 3 before I had to do the stand on one foot and I even told them I had poor balance, especially since I just woke up. Well, she failed me and placed me under arrest. When we got to the police station, she had me perform the same tests all over again, passing all but the balance test and Gabe me a ticket for a DUI and the released me. I even informed them I was homeless. Can the legally arrest and ticket me for a DUI?
Yes. Sadly, operation under Missouri law is satisfied by the engine running even in park. However, you may a lot for...
