I know police have to follow laws and procedures. Making a judgement call to allow an intoxicated driver with a bac of .213 to go free without citation or legal ramifactions doesn't seem right. I've read the laws in Utah Regarding DUI laws. I've yet to come across a reason to not cite the driver, let alone take his excuse as a reason to "arrest" another who wasn't in the car. Did they charge me because I have a record, and I was an easy target? Or is it just normal for police not to report on field sobriety test results to a judge so they can make the call?
