A person can be pulled over and investigated by law enforcement for driving under the influence if they are driving erratically, recklessly and negligently. An officer will ask a person to step outside of the motor vehicle to perform a field sobriety test. If a person fails or there is enough probable cause to make an arrest, a person will then be handcuffed and charged with DUI.
Once a person is at the police station they may be asked to submit to a breath test, blood test and/or urine test to determine BAC (blood alcohol content). If a person has a BAC at or above 0.08% they are considered to be intoxicated. A person will typically spend a night or weekend in jail and then be released and expected to schedule a DMV Hearing and appear in criminal court.
The best step that a person can take to protect their legal rights would be to hire a skilled Whittier DUI attorney immediately. At the Law Offices of Paul S. Geller we have successfully represented clients charged with DUI throughout Whittier, California. Please contact a Whittier DUI lawyer at our firm immediately to schedule a free case consultation.
