    Answered . You should seek the advise of a criminal law attorney who is versed in Mass OUI laws/search and seizure issues. Your auto insurer will probably deny payment of the Personal Injury Protection (medical/lost wage payments) because of the alleged OUI. If you have health insurance make sure the hospital and other providers bill your health insurance.

    Answered . Bottom line is that he needs to retain a DUI lawyer immediately. He's lucky he didn't kill someone driving under the influence, otherwise he would have a vehicular manslaughter charge.
