I actually passed the breath test, but the police still arrested me. How is that possible?


Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

It’s very possible to be arrested, taken to jail and charged with DUI, even if you pass the breath test. Because what the police will say was, well he was obviously using drugs or too many pills or something and they were falling down when I saw the person. They had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes. They have a litany of things that they rattle off, most of which don’t mean anything.

For example, we’ve had cases where people who’ve been in accidents and have injuries from the steering wheel right across their head. They police say, “Well, gee, they were unsteady on their feet.” Well of course they were. They were just in an accident. There are plenty of that I know and that you know that have blood shot eyes all the time or speak in a way that somebody might think it’s slurred speech, when it is not. So an experienced criminal defense lawyer can represent you well and properly and very often get DUI charges dismissed when the police don’t have a sufficient or a proper basis for charging you.
