More people are wrongly accused of DUI than any other crime on the books
Why? Because a DUI arrest is a judgment call.
If a police officer arrests you for DUI in Fort Pierce, elsewhere in St. Lucie County or anywhere on the Treasure Coast, it’s because she/he thinks you are drunk.
The judgment is based on the officer’s opinion – and nothing else. The police officer is guessing based on his/her interpretation of your demeanor and appearance.
It is not against the law to drink and drive in Fort Pierce
But it is against the law to drink TOO MUCH, and drive. Even the most diligent police officer often guesses wrong.
After all, the officer, who has no real medical training, is giving an opinion about the effects of an unknown amount of a drug (alcohol), consumed by a person the officer does not know, over an unknown period of time.
No doctor would do that, but police officers do every day.
It’s no surprise that police often get it wrong. Here are some of the many reasons for an improper DUI arrest:
- DUI field sobriety tests are notoriously inaccurate and unfair
- The officer may have a provable bias against people who drink
- Breathalyzer tests may be inaccurate or wrongly interpreted
- Your breath test may not support the arresting officer’s opinion
- Something other than alcohol may have caused a seemingly high Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)
- Your DUI arrest information may not hold up
- You blew below the DUI limit
- The evidence does not support what the officer claims she/he saw
- The case is wrongly handled
