Is Ambien a standard prescription drug that the GBI will look for in a Blood test involving a DUI under the influence of Alcohol
I was arressted for DUI for Alcohol. I submitted to a Blood test because the breathalizer was not registering anything. However, I did take Ambien and apparently woke up from my sleep and went for a drive (sleep driving) and then was pulled over which resulted in my arrest. I think I might have told the officer that I had taken Ambien but don't really remember. However, I would think that if I did tell him then it would have been noted in the citation but it wasn't. Only Alcohol was cited as the reason for the arrest and blood test.
If there is no alcohol on your blood and if the officer asked the GBI to conduct a drunk analysis, then the GBI will...

Need advice... Few questions about getting a GA DUI
I got pulled over for failure to maintain lane and failed the field sobriety tests and the breathalyzer. I blew a .160 and got the intent to suspend notice. I mailed a letter and am waiting to get a date for the ALS hearing. Do I need a lawyer for the ALS hearing? I work full time and don't think I can get out of this charge. Is there any way my job could find out about this as long as I don't miss work and have no commercial driving obligations? Do they typically drug test you at any point? I've never even got a speeding ticket or been in criminal legal trouble. Should I be doing community service or DUI class or anything before I go to my first court date? This is the stupidest thing I've ever done and will ever do. I'm thankful no one was hurt. Thank you for your help.
Yes you need a lawyer for the ALS hearing.You sya this is the stupidest thing you've ever done. Do not compound the...
How to go about satisfying 8 yr old Ignition Interlock order when no longer in that state?
My partner was convicted of DWI in North Carolina 8 years ago. He was ordered to have the Ignition Interlock placed on his car. He did not own one so he could never satisfy that requirement. Today he lives in Georgia and has for several years. Georgia's DWI Ignition interlock works differently and seems to actually be much more expensive. i.e.: NC recalibrate every two months... GA every month. How can he go about getting his license back when NC is wanting him to do something he just can't do. No car, can't register one in his name with no insurance. Can't get insurance with no license or satisfy the 8 year old court order.
He would need a waiver of the interlock ignition signed by the sentencing judge. A seasoned dui lawyer should be able...
