Don’t Get the Max – Call an Arizona DUI Attorney
Another Hollywood DUI arrest hopefully sends a message that no one is above the law when it comes to carelessly driving impaired. R&B singer Miguel was arrested in Los Angeles early this morning after being pulled over for speeding and having tinted windows. Having a few drinks out with friends is perfectly legal, but when it comes to the ride home, you better make sure you are not impaired at all. Typically we underestimate our impairment and out blood alcohol levels, thinking that we are “ok to drive” and quickly convincing companions the same. If you have to think about it for a second, you probably should not get behind that wheel.
While many of the DUI arrests that make the news are in California, Arizona is extremely tough on drunk drivers. You can be pulled over for any minor traffic violation, and then the stop can quickly turn more serious if the officer notices signs of drinking. If you are pulled over and have been drinking, whether a lot or just a little, it is important that you are polite and respectful to the officer, even if you are declining a question. Do not admit that you had been drinking. Politely decline to take the field sobriety tests, but do submit to a blood alcohol test once you have been arrested. At any time during the stop, you can respectfully request to speak with a lawyer: then call Matthew Lopez Law at 602-980-1987.
