Driver suspected dui
Yes. After law enforcement has established a lawful basis for the stop, from simply a “safety” standpoint for officers courts have determined asking the occupants to exit the vehicle and even pat down can occur. If you are the driver who was arrested for DUI I would strongly encourage you to seek experienced legal counsel in the specific area of DUI. If you are an occupant and were charged with a crime you should also consider seeking experienced legal counsel to explore your defenses.
