Pulled over for faulty license plate light. The Officer claimed that I was intoxicated on marijuana because me my eyes were red and he could smell it. Searched my person and took glasses away, did not search car. Had me do roadside test and I failed because I was "unsteady, had a low mumble voice, and had bloodshot eyes." Charged me with possession but literally did not even search my car or find anything. Arrested and jailed for the night. Given the situation I did not believe the officer had substantial probable cause to say I was intoxicated and request I do a blood test so i refused. I don't see the officer having any substantial proof to say that I was without a doubt intoxicated and no physical proof was found, just curious how much of a fight chance I have. Regards.

I was charged with a DUI in Aug. 2013 and was convicted in Feb. 2014. I have passed every test, completed all classes/community service, payments, etc. After 10 month being on prob. I may have failed a completely random UA for thc. I have read a lot and found people saying because it is my first offense since beginning probation, I will likely get a warning or increased random tests and meetings with my p.o. officer. Wondering and hoping this is accurate info. I have been compliant the whole time and we get along.
It depends. The judge may or may not cut you a break. Call your lawyer.
I was arrested for a dui because I failed the roadside test and refused a expressed consent blood test. The arresting officer had charged me for possession of alcohol even though it was a drug related stop. NOTHING was found in the car or on my person and it the vehicle was not searched. He did mention that he saw marijuana residue on the car seat but it wasn't collected so there is no way to say it was without a doubt marijuana. Is there any way to discredit this officer and subsequently get the other charger dismissed due to the lack of due diligence on the arresting officers part, either for not collecting evidence of charging me without evidence?
It is possible to challenge the officer, but you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to do so. You can find...
