I was involved in a minor car accident near home. City police were called & arrived almost immediately. There were no passengers in my car & no injuries. I recognized the officer-on-scene as being the same officer who'd harassed Me multiple times in the past. He has a history of harassing young women during c. 06-07 and was formally disciplined by the dept. for the misconducts. The accident had already shaken Me and dazed Me. Then, I'm approached by the officer who had a history of harassing Me & the other women. I was rendered very apprehensive, confused & intimidated by all this. The officer says "I smell alcohol coming off you" & asks me to do a breathalyzer then a field sobriety test, I refuse both & was arrested right away. I've no priors & license was valid @ the time.
The definition, charges, and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) vary by state and depend on a number of factors.
After you are arrested for DUI, getting the charges against you dropped or reduced will require you to develop a defense.
