There seems to be a lot here for the officer to make a stop, including valid worries about your safety, statement by Pharmacist, some unusual behaviors associated with driving. You can consult a criminal defense attorney as to the stop, and even if the stop holds, you will have briefed your attorney as to defending the actual case. There may be more advantage in bargaining than in fighting the stop, but your attorney can advise you once every detail is known. Make no admissions here on this public forum.
We do not have a client/attorney relationship until you make an appointment, we discuss your case face to face, I accept a retainer, and we explictly agree to enter into representation.
Sounds like a perfectly lawful stop--do doubt the officer will report valid grounds for such a stop. YOu may be able to beat the charge on other grounds, but would need an experienced DUI attorney IMMEDIATELY.
READ THIS BEFORE CALLING OR EMAILING ME: I am licensed to practice before the state and federal courts in Virginia. We have not established an attorney-client relationship unless we have a signed representation agreement and you have paid me. I am providing educational instruction only--not legal advice. You should speak with an attorney to whom you have provided all the facts, before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. I am not obligated to answer subsequent emails or phone calls unless you have hired me. I wish you the best of luck with your situation.
The standard for stopping a vehicle in Pennsylvania is very low so I don't believe you have presented a very compelling argument. It is suggested that you immediately retain an experienced criminal defense attorney. The attorney will be able to investigate all defenses and options that may be available to you.
It looks like there is reasonable suspicion for the stop. If you are convicted and your alcohol level is above .10% you are looking at mandatory jail time so you need to retain an experienced local attorney ASAP.
