I was stopped for suspicion of DUI. They took me to the sheriff's department to take a breathalyzer and I requested a blood test. The police officers told me I had to pay $85 to take it. I didn't have the money on me and they said they would get me with refusal if I didn't blow in the machine. I blew and after they booked me into jail they said they would take me for a blood test for free then. Is this legal?
If convicted, the Court may order you to pay for it.
This cop arrested me for dwi a couple months ago and went to his second job the next day bragging about it. He even said my name and the location it happened and everything I said. He said he finally got me. Is that any kind of rights violation?
Depending on what was said, how you found out, and how strong your proof is, you could have a civil action for...
I was pulled over because I didn't know any cops were anywhere, and I was fixing to miss the road I needed to turn on, so, I turned real fast so I didn't miss it. The cop charged me with everything he could think of, even no seatbelt and I had my seatbelt on!! Anyway, when he asked about drugs, I told him what pill I had took, trying to be Miss Good Citizen, because I wasn't any longer under the influence on them. And, he wouldn't listen to nothing else I had to say about it!! They wanted to do a blood test, and I refused because I don't like needles and I wasn't even guilty of anything. I'm also worried I have too many driving on suspendeds and could get jail time for that. I'm disabled, for chronic pain, and the jail won't give me my meds. What should I do and can I get house arrest?
There are a number of possible defenses to your case, but the quality of those defenses can only be fully known by an...

I'm starting my classes Thursday.. Have to attend 4 classes... Will the judge revoke my probation and send me to jail Tuesday or could he let me have an extension on my classes..
The judge will probably extend your probation if you show proof that you have started your classes, but he doesn't have...
I got a dwi almost 2 yrs ago and thought i completed fines&comm serv. i moved out of state 6 months ago only to find they had issued a warrant. I called today and they said the warrant has been recalled. I'm eligible to get my license back this summer, etc. Am I in trouble? What do I do? And what does this all mean?
If the warrant has been recalled then there should be no warrant, to be safe it would be a good investment to retain an...
I have a friend that is being charged with DUI. The police came to his house and are charging him with this. I would think you could not charge someone with DUI unless they were in their vehicle.
I am not an AR lawyer but it seems to me that driving would be an essential element of any DUI charge anywhere (it...
Why did prosecutor not charge my former friend with child endangerment for DWI with her 2 babies in the car?
I love my friend but she really needs help. She told me that she was drinking a lot one night and while driving home she ended up crashing into a ditch, cops stopped and cited her with a DWI, all while her 2 babies were in her car. She went to court and got charged with a DWI. She has a disposition hearing in a few months. But they still haven't brought up any charges of child endangerment. I thought that Arkansas is very strict about pursuing charges of child endangerment when someone is drinking while driving and has minor children in the car under a certain age. Plus I don't think that there was even a child services case opened because of this. This is her first offense, only because it's her first time getting caught. I fear that she is going to do it again.
There is still time for the prosecutor to add these charges if he or she desires. If you feel compelled you can file a...
