Las Vegas DUI Arrest Scenarios Attorney

Nobody ever expects to be pulled over, especially on suspicion of DUI, but it can happen at any time. Usually when you are pulled over, the scenario plays out in a specific way. Below is an example of what you may encounter during a DUI arrest in Las Vegas. Knowing what to expect can help you stay calm and collected during an extremely stressful time.

The Traffic Stop

A police officer may pull you over for any one of several reasons: your taillight may be out, for example, or you may have been driving in a manner he found odd, such as swerving or rolling through a stop sign. You may also come across a DUI checkpoint, where police may pull drivers over for no specified reason. Once pulled over, the officer will ask for your license, registration, and proof of insurance. He will probably ask a series of simple questions about where you are coming from and where you are headed, all the while observing your speech and behavior for signs of intoxication.

If your officer believes that signs of impairment are present, he will probably ask you to step out of the car and submit to a battery of Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs). You are not legally required to take these tests, and it is your right to refuse. If you do refuse, or if the officer believes you performed poorly, you will be asked to take a breath or blood test. While you may refuse a breath test by federal law, this decision may invite additional penalties like a suspended license.

If you perform poorly on your breath test, or if you refuse to submit, your police officer will most likely decide to make an arrest. Stay calm, remember to stay silent, and get in contact with an experienced Las Vegas DUI attorney as soon as possible.
