You head out for a night on the town. You have a few drinks but do not feel intoxicated. While driving home, you get pulled over by the police. He says you were swerving on the road. He asks where you were coming from and if you have been drinking.
The next thing you know, the officer orders you out of your car and asks you to perform roadside field sobriety tests. Afterward, he asks you to take a breathalyzer test. You are shocked and confused when you are arrested, handcuffed and placed in the back of his squad car.
Driving under the influence is an incredibly common charge in California. Any number of people have a drink or two and feel fine to drive, but a police officer spots them driving in a way that suggests impairment and pulls them over. If the officer claims to smell alcohol, that your eyes look bloodshot, and that your speech is slurred, you may soon find yourself facing an unexpected DUI charge.
