Probable Cause and Police Misconduct in Southfield OWI Cases

In order to pull a person over and investigate for suspected drunk driving, a Michigan police officer must have probable cause for the stop. Slightly swerving without committing a traffic violation does not count as cause, and the officer must actually observe you breaking some kind of traffic law, be it by changing lanes without signaling, running a red light, or speeding. If an officer does not have probable cause, anything they find during the stop is invalid and cannot be used in court.

Police can also fail to properly fill out reports, fail to comply with state procedures, or give false testimony concerning the case, which could lead to a case dismissal or at the least, the striking of some evidence from the court. Always work with a lawyer to review everything that police have done, or failed to do, and challenge violations of your rights during a DUI investigation.

Breath Test and BAC Errors in Southfield DUI Cases

One of the more common errors made in DUI cases is relying on breath test evidence alone, which can be very unreliable. If used while malfunctioning, used without supervision, or otherwise improperly used, a BAC test will not read accurately. Additional factors such as mouth alcohol, medical conditions, or even dietary considerations can play a role. Rising blood alcohol level is also a valid consideration, especially in borderline cases. If the test is taken well after the accused has stopped driving BAC can continue to rise until the test is administered.
