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...

I had an anxiety attack at wrk on a tuesday night, I work 3rd shift. I ended up having to leave work bc it was so bad. A friend at work gave me a xanax and told me to go home and lay down.

He gave me a breathalizor which was 0 then wanted me to do tests on side of rd. Due to issues which Im needing surgery I cant stand on either leg nor walk straight
The legal advice that your require is way more complex than what can be answered via this forum. I highly recommend...
DUI dismissed. Do I still have to do ADSAP for failure to submit to breathalyzer?
I was arrested in May of 2012. My case was dismissed by the Magistrate court because the officer was wrong in all aspects of the case and didn't want to press charges. I received a letter stating that I was able to have the DUI case expunged as well as any related charges, at no cost to me. Does that mean that I can have the refusal to blow dismissed or expunged also and avoid ADSAP?
You have 30 days to contest that refusal suspension. That suspension is separate from the criminal case in the...
Boyfriend got charged with DUI, he refused to take a breathalyzer, how can you help?
My boyfriend got pulled over for a DUI saturday night. The thing is the officer gave him a warning ticket for swerving in lanes, the only reason why he swerved was because we got food and it spilled and he was trying to clean it up He only had a beer, or two. He passed all the exams, and he refused to take a breathalyzer. The cops arrested him, and suspended his license. Why did the officer givr him a warning ticket for swerving in lanes and then arrest him? Is there anyway we can get out of this? He refused to take a breathalyzer, therefor technically they dont have proof that he was drunk? (The reason why he refused to take a breathalyzer was because there was a St. Pattys celebration in SC and he had drank earlier, but he didnt know how much wouldve still been in his system)
Refusing to take the breathalyzer test was a serious mistake. If you get pulled over on suspicion of a DUI and...
How do you get a Dr.to sign a form saying you are alright to drive if you had a DUI and take pain meds?
In 2006 I got a DUI and lost my licence.I paid my fine,took the required class for 8 weeks,paid for it and was then told since I take pain meds.that my Dr. would have to sign a form saying I'm good to drive.Ofcourse my Dr. won't sign because he's scared he'll get in trouble if get in a wreck.It's been almost 10 years w/out being able to drive ,which is very hard on my family.I don't drink or do any illegal drugs,but have had 2 back surgeries,2 knee surgeries and I have chronic pain.How do I get my licence back?I follow the rules and don't do anything illegal,but I'm still being punished for a mistake that I have already paid for.
I'm not sure who is telling you this (maybe the DMV) but I can put you in contact with some very good local attorneys...
When will South Carolina find out about my North Carolina DWI?
I was convicted of a second DUI in NC in March 2011. At the time, my SC license was suspended for a DUI I received there. My NC suspension ended 3/4/2015 and I paid the restoration fee at a NCDMV on that date. However, South Carolina has never been notified of this NC conviction in 4 years. Will SC find out when I go to a SCDMV to finally restore my license (I waited out the 4 year NC suspension even though the SCDMV said I was eligible for license restoration in February 2012), 4 years after the conviction and suspend my license again from the date of notification rather than the date of the NC offense in March 2011?
Good question and it is equally good that you appreciate it is still possible. It is hard to say when this will...
Can a DUI in one state violate probation in another?
My son's dad (now estranged) is on probation in GA for family violence and cruelty to children. He is now in SC (where my son and I are) and was arrested for a DUI in January. A local police officer ran an NCIC when I filed a report because he drove by my house, and the officer said that my ex has a warrant in GA for assault & battery and that he is violating probation by being here. My ex has court today, and I was wondering how this might play out. He has a long list of priors, including a DUI here over 10 years ago, multiple A&B, public drunk, and multiple CDV. I also know that he just got fired from his job, so he will not be able to pay the $1,022 fine. He was bonded out on a surety bond after spending one night in jail after his arrest.
Yes. Probation says "VIOLATE NO LAW" not just laws of state Xyz.... now will the state ever find out about it??? ---...
