What is probable cause for a DWI?
To arrest you for driving while intoxicated (DWI), police must first have reasonable suspicion that you are committing a crime to stop you. However, in order to arrest you for a DWI the police must have probable cause. Some common mistakes a police officer can make when arresting you for DWI include:
Some common mistakes a police officer can make when arresting you for DWI include:
- Stopping you based on a “hunch”
- Stopping you because of an anonymous call with no prior observations
- Stopping you because you were driving too slow or too fast without further proof
- Stopping you because you were weaving within a single lane
- Stopping you just to see if you have your driver’s license and registration
- Following you home without any probable cause or permission
- Not following police DWI training
- Not following Texas Breath Alcohol Testing Regulations
- Detaining you for longer than what is necessary
- Using your statements alone as probable cause to arrest you
These mistakes are all things that can impact how your DWI/DUI case is defended. If you were arrested for drunk driving in Conroe or Montgomery County, contact Texas criminal defense lawyer Amanda Webb to go over your rights and discuss your legal options.
What happens if I fail a breathalyzer test?
If you failed a breathalyzer test or a blood test, it doesn’t automatically mean you will be found guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI). Blood test results and breathalyzer test results are simply pieces of evidence that an experienced DWI defense attorney can challenge or raise doubts about when defending you. With breath tests there is a lot of room for error, as the breathalyzer only estimates your blood alcohol content (BAC).
If you were arrested for DWI/DUI in Conroe or anywhere in Montgomery County due to a failed breathalyzer test, contact Texas criminal defense lawyer Amanda Webb right away. As a former assistant district attorney, Attorney Webb has a clear understanding of the law and knows what it takes to get a positive outcome in your case.
