Is it possible to actually get charged with D.U.I. even if I was't drinking or doing drugs?
I work 3rd shift and one night I had a panic attack and got sent home from work. A friend gave me some of her medicine and told me to take it and lay down. I got home around 2am. I went sraight to sleep. The next day I got up 5 minutes before time to leave to get my daughter from school, so I threw on my house coat and ran out the door taking my toy chiwawa with me. My dog was acting funny and I tried making her behave.. Finally I gaot to a four way stop near the school and when pulling off my dog ran up my neck, scratching me along the way, and I ran off the side of the road. When I got back on the road I was pulled over, but not by the police.....it was a game warden. I tried doin the roadside test but I have to have surgery on my knee and I have never been able to walk straight.
The short answer is yes, you can be charged. In Florida, If the officer feels that he can prove you were driving...

Now living in SC, can I get my CA license cleared by getting the IID requirement waived? LA County, first offense...
I got a DUI 4 years ago while living in CA. I completed all the court requirements, paid the fines, and finished the probation. I am working on expungement. But because I was arrested in LA County, even for a first offense I was required by DMV to install an IID for 5 months. I wasn't able to buy another car and do this before I moved out of state, so I never reinstated my CA license. There is nothing else holding that up. Now settled in SC, I can't just move back to CA, buy a car, install an IID, and drive around for 5 months. Can I petition a judge in CA to waive the IID requirement and clear the hold on my CA license, so I can get a SC license? Is there any other solution? This is a genuine hardship case, if that helps.
6 months after conviction, call 916 657 6525 and file a "1650" with CA DMV which will release the Hold on your CA license.

Should I fight my DUI case?
I was recently arrested for a DUI after being pulled over into my driveway. I admitted to the officer that I had two glasses of white wine (Pinot Grigio) that evening, but I refused to take a breathalyzer test. The police also suggested that they smelt drugs, but I do not consume drugs. I allowed them to search my vehicle and nothing was found, of course. The officer did not maranda me but did proceed to throw me onto the concrete and shove my face into the ground as he handcuffed me, I was still not read my rights. I am being charged with DUI and resisting arrest, but I'm not understanding how any of this will hold up in court, should I fight it?
You should absolutely fight it. No question about it.
Under the FOIA, does the tape of someone who followed me from a restaurant and falsely reported me drunk have to be given to me?
I was stopped and found not drunk or even questionably drunk. A stranger followed me, I am a 62 year old female and frightened. Do I not have the right to know her name? I feel slandered and scared of this unknown woman that chose to do this.
FOIA allows access to records maintained by the government. The restaurant does fall into that category, but the if...
