What To Do When Stopped For DWI

The usual beginning of a DWI is that a cop walks up to your door, and asks you whether you’ve been drinking. And to that point, they have no evidence on you. They claim to smell an odor of alcohol. They claim that your eyes are bloodshot, but that will not suffice to be convicted beyond a reasonable doubt. That’s why they ask you to get out of the car. That’s why they ask you to do the one leg stand, the walk and turn, and they put a little light in your face, and check the nystagmus in your eyes, because that is the evidence that they’re trying to find. And what you need to know is that you have a right to say no. You’ll be arrested, but that’s when you call me up, and we can get you a bond. And your case, more than likely, won’t even get a cause number, because the DA will not file it.
