the officer pulled me over for backing over the yellow line while pulling out of my driveway. this probably true because i live on a bad curve and need to. I had 2 beers and a fireball shot 3-4 hours earlier. I took a breathalizer on the side of the road but he screamed at me n said it wasnt working?? He talked smack the whole way to the station calling me fat saying he dosnt get how my husband could sleep w me but big girls need love to things like that I m 120lbs ahole....gave me a dwi ticket, one for crossing the yellow line, and a wreckless driving ticket, i was told by a cop friend that the wreckless driving ticket can hurt me more or prove that the cop was out of his mind. I was not drunk and i have a cdl cause i drive a bus so I am screwed best strategy to fight this
It sounds as if the officer "overcharged" you. There is case law that may make the going over the double yellow not prosectuable or at least questionable, and there is not enough there for reckless driving in my opinion. The DWI strictly depends upon our reading. Since you have CDL, you should fight this all the way. Hire an aggressive and experienced DWI attorney to combat this irate police officer.
Best stratedgy is to hire an attorney to defend this. That way all the issues can be worked thru favorable.
