Arrested in my front yard for being drunk and tearing stuff up with my truck- thought it was my private property - two felonies
A year ago I got really drunk at my house jumped into my truck, in my private drive way,and tore up the lovely yard that the wife likes so much and pushed over my storage shed. Mind you no one was at the house at the time but I was arrested and charged with agrivated DUI , criminal mischief, criminal endangerment. I did all this damage then turned my truck off and waited in my yard for about 2 minutes until the police showed up. My attorney , which my wife use to work for, wasn't much help- got a plea agreement that cancelled the DUI but kept the other two which are felonies. Do you think this was handled properly? I know these small towns make up their own rules as in my case- wife and father-in-law, which I live right across the street from,influenced the police- cant be right?

Would this be illegal search and seizure?
Got arrested for dui. My breath test was .02 the legal limit. Right after I was arrested. My car was still running with the windows down. I told him I needed my house keys and wanted to lock it up. Another officer then went and opened the door to the car and reached inside. The whole time I was saying no I didn't say you could get in there. He told me you ask for us to get your keys I said no I said I need to get my keys. He quickly yells no he said no but the other cop already had gotten inside the car and when he walk back still had my keys in his hand. They wouldn't let me lock up my car telling me we will secure the car its going to be towed. I wasn't parked where it'd be needed towed. I ask whats securing my car mean never getting a answer.

i was arrested on april 20th for an aggravated dui. its my first one. one of my friends father is a police officer and said that i can get off the charge and get off the scram bracelet because the officer instead of taking me to the hospital due to a sever accident took me straight to jail. there was no ambulance or fire department. just one officer and he arrested me on sight without any question. or question about my well being. was my civil rights violated to the extent of where i can get off the charge?
