the person in question, had taken prescribed medications(class II narcotics) as the persons doctor had prescribed. when the police officer approached the vehicle, insurance, and drivers licence was given, and the officer stated, that you can be taken by ambulance to the hospital, or i will arrest you for DUI. while the driver was at the hospital, the officer came back with the insurance paperwork, and licence, along with a ticket for careless driving. so the question is, can the driver be recharged with a higher charge? does the driver need a lawyer?
