Albuquerque, NM asked in DUI / DWI for Arizona

Q: What if i get pulled over and the cop gives me a “DUI” ticket but doesn’t take my blood test or doesn’t take me to jail

I was at a bar in Arizona visiting from New Mexico with my friend and he got into a fight so we left the bar and someone called in the fight and gave them a description of my car and the police pulled me over and cuffed my friend and made me do tests for drinking and driving like heel to toe and turn and blowing into the breathalyzer and then took me home. I have a court date and I’m afraid of going to jail. I have never been in trouble before.

A: Welcome to AZ. I am sorry to hear about your experience. AZ is a zero tolerance state and has very strict DUI Laws. If the officer did not draw your blood or make you submit to a breath test, in the station, there is an excellent opportunity for our office to fight this charge and get a dismissal. I would never recommend facing the prosecution alone. A skilled attorney can make it so that you do not have to show up to court, until the resolution of the case. Since you live in New Mexico this may be the best option for you. Our law firm has a strong record of DUI dismissals and successes. We are happy to discus your case further. We offer a free consultation 480.923.9001. Let us know if we can help you fight this.
