Katy, TX asked in DUI / DWI for Texas

Q: I have a friend who was at a bar in Texas drinking. Another party said that he moved his car in the parking lot.

They said he hit their car while moving his car in the parking lot. He had been parked the entire time and in fact had called a Lyft driver to pick him up. In the meantime the other party called the cops and he was arrested inside the bar for DUI because of the witnesses. What are his options?

A: I am terribly sorry to hear this. He will need an experienced DWI attorney to help gather evidence such as this witness statement and present it to the prosecutor. A criminal case must be proven Beyond a Reasonable Doubt and it sounds like your eye-witness account could certainly create a problem in the state's case.
