What to do if you have been drinking?
If you have been pulled over by the police, there are several ways you can help yourself. Remain calm. Police officers can interpret nervousness in your voice as a sign that you are hiding something or are intoxicated. Always have a clean center console or glove box. Fumbling through these compartments to find your registration or insurance can be misinterpreted for intoxication. By keeping a glove box or center console neat and clean, it allows you to swiftly grab your credentials and present it to the police officer.
Do not consent to a search of the car. Any evidence found in your car could be used to support a DUI conviction, so do not allow the officer to perform a search. Get a blood test after release. Because alcohol detection devices can be faulty, it’s a good idea to measure your BAC (blood alcohol concentration) after arrest. At trial, your attorney can use that evidence to raise possible defenses. Contact Raymond B. Lail, today for a consultation.
