(Concord, North Carolina) Cabarrus county

My Car broke down on side of road. I called my exhusband(big mistake) to come help me.. He said NO and said he was going to call police to help me. I waited at 20 minutes noone came. I walked up interstate 1/2 block to see if anyone had gas can for gas because my Gas gauge has been broken for a year. Noone had one. I then went in store and bought a 20oz Bud Light and sat on corner crying because my Lexus was on side of road and couldn't get help because my cell phone died. I then decided to walk home since it was a mile up the road. I was almost to my home and 2 cops came swerving over and gave me a breathalizer and arrested me. I told them i had a half a glass of wine @ 7:30p at Razzoos and that that was 5 hours ago. I also told them I walked up highway drinking my 20oz because i was upset. They told me that they had to take me in because My EX HUSBAND had told them i was drinking. Once to police station they let me go home because I have no prior convictions. No w mylicense is revoked for 30 days.. I am a single mother of 2 who have school, basketball, and cheer all week. I also do this all on my own because the father moved out of the county. i need my license because I am a nurse and I have a job to go back and forth to! Any help would be great! Thanks

I was arrested for a dui 9/11/08, my case was continued once by me to hire an attorney, and my attorney continued it twice just to give me some more driving time. Then the court continued it indefinitely because they were too backed up in cases. Since then I was arrested and convicted of another dui. Last December I moved to Virginia and started a new job and found out too late that my case had been called to court on my original dui and I failed to appear: bench warrant. I would like to ultimately resolve this, but now I am on the verge of being eligible for my license again. In order for me to resolve this at all, I would have to return to NC and turn myself in then either bond out or wait for my court case. I had hoped that the arresting officer had moved onto another police dept somewhere, but alas, he is still there. None of my options look great. Any advice?

(Yanceyville, North Carolina) Caswell county

(Wilmington, North Carolina) New Hanover county

I am contacting you on behalf of my son. Here is the situation:25 year old male, full time college student who wants to be a nurse.Just moved to Wilmington in August to attend school and doesn't know anyone. An out of state friend comes to visit him and they go out. On Friday, 10/14, 12:45 am,Stopped for alleged speeding, based on officer's visual determination,no radar. First time dui arrest and jailed overnight. Officer stated my son was the most polite person he has ever encountered. Nothing else on DMV record. No other legal involvement. Court date is 11/10, New Hanover County.In addition to his regular full time schedule, he needs to start Certified Nursing Assistant training on 11/7 but cannot drive. Is it possible to get permission to drive and plea this down to something other than a dui? I'm thinking that a dui conviction would end any possibility of becoming a nurse. Thanks!

(Concord, North Carolina) Cabarrus county

I went around the race track at charlotte motor speedway to pick up by husband. We were camping there. The traffic cones had been moved to allow race traffic to leave and I had to get on the state road to get back to the camper. I was sitting in traffic waiting on the officers to motion me to go on and the officer shined a flash light in my car and saw a cup. I was not planning to be on the highway, I was even wearing my pajamas. I was only 25 feet or so from the camper when he asked me if I had been drinking. My speed never got above 30 while I was under the wheel and I was stopped when the officer approached the car. My total time in the car was less than 15 minutes.

(Raleigh, North Carolina) Wake county

Last year back in July, I was charged with a dui. The officer said he pulled me over because of improper lane usage. He didn't stop me until after 3 miles of following behind me and waited until I entered private property and was about to park to stop me and pull me over. The officer had plenty of chances to pull me over before that.

(Goldsboro, North Carolina) Wayne county

 On a Thursday night in August, I decided to drive my friends home because they were intoxicated, wanting everyone to get home safe due to having to go to work, school, etc. While driving, someone possibly under the influence was heading towards my lane. I honked the horn to notify the driver that they were crossing into my lane also using hand signals. The driver wasn't comprehending coming closer in my direction. Not even a minute passed, the other driver then budged my friend's vehicle,me losing control causing us to run off the road going through a fence at some type of warehouse development. These improbable acts from the other driver almost caused us to be severely injured even our lives. This situation led to a hit and run without me being able to get the license plate number. I then checked to see if everyone was ok, us all being shakened up cause of the whole thing. Two people for no aparant reasonfled the scene while a friend and I stayed to contact the police and someone who can help us due to the accident. A few minutes later a police officer shows up flashing his light at my friend and I telling us to put our hands up. My participation was in full detail and of honesty. The officer then issues me a field sabority test. I asked him to disregard my slight off balance due to fact I just got in a dramastic accident. My test was successfull having to put one foot in front of the other, walking in a straight line counting from one to ten, then turning around repeating the same procedure. The officer then issues a breathalizer, it being in the range between 0.05-0.06. The officer then arrests me heading to downtown Goldsboro area to fill out some paperwork, being held in a holding cell overnight due to the fact I stated in exact words "I feel like killing myself". What I stated wasn't of any relevance for me even attempting to harm myself in that manner, just was highly upset this accident occured from someone elses stupidity, also in regards to my friends for their safety. My ticket is for no operators licencse and this being my second dui. The first happened in July of 2009 proceding all the way to September of 2010.During some previous research, I began to realize I've been bamboozled for the fact my case should of been thrown out of court due to Statutes of Limitation, also the officer who issued the ticket no longer had any original documentation from the incident of when it occured, false accusation of verbal information given to my public defender from the officer that wasn't of any help at the point I called myself to the stand to testify. Bad things happen to good people, being perfectly honest if the hit and run incident never happened, I wouldn't have to be facing these charges knowing I was sob erenough to be behind a wheel license or no license, getting other passengers to there destinations with no worries. I ask whoever my information is in reference to please help me the best ways humanly possible to defend my word and most importantly not to affect my possibilities in any way to continue my process in joining the Armed Foces.

(Belmont, North Carolina) Gaston county

I got pulled over last night. It was by the same State Trooper that pulled me over for my first dui offense.I went to the store for an 18 pack and the police officer recognized me at the store and proceeded to follow my vehicle when I left. He followed the vehicle and pulled me over right out front of my house. He gave me a breathalyzer test and I blew 0.08. They then arrested me and took me to Belmont Police Station. Once there, they administered several different tests, but n the breath test, I still blew 0.08. The breath test was administered twice.Then they took e to Gaston county jail, and set bond and advised me to contact a lawyer.The State Trooper that pulled me over, did so because he said he recognized me from before. He indicated that I was being pulled over for speeding. I feel that he profiled me based on my past experiences, as he got into his car as soon as I pulled out of the parking lot and followed me. There was no reason for him to follow me otherwise.The passenger was the owner of the car. Court First Appearance is September 30th, 2011

(Elkin, North Carolina) Surry county

I wrecked my car due to a black out or seizure. They found in my car my boyfriend's diabetic syringes (unused of course) and someone had left a pill crusher in my vehicle. They gave me a sobriety test and said I was speaking slowly and not moving well. I am disabled due to a wreck in 2008 and can't move well anyway; if I had a seizure, my words would be slow/slurred. I had not been drinking, but I am on pain medicine. They took me to the hospital to have blood work done on me, although I do not know the results of it. I would like to know what fines/penalties I will be facing. I have no criminal records of any kind. Thank you. --

(Jacksonville, North Carolina) Onslow county

I feel that there were many factors in my personal situation that could possibly be a reason for my case to be dismissed. The officer refused to tell me the results of the field tests when I asked him. He refused to tell me the results of the breathalyzer test when I asked him claiming that they are inadmissible in court. It is my understanding that breathalyzer tests at the scene of the arrest can be admissible in court if multiple tests are performed and the outcome is very close. I am unaware if they were close but I took a significant number of breathalyzer tests in conjunction with the field tests. I am not aware if I passed my field sobriety tests, but when I asked I was not told anything so it is my belief that I did pass them; however, it should be mentioned that I have Traumatic Brain Injury that effects my vestibular performance and functions such as balance. If I was able to pass the field tests with the balance issues that I have doctor documentation for, then what does that say about my sobriety or coordination at the time of the tests.I was not detained but rather told I was being arrested for driving under the influence for the reason of smelling like beer and my eyes were a little glossy. I do not feel that this is a reasonable "probable cause" for an arrest, and believe I should have only been detained. I was never given my Miranda rights by the officer. I was also given a number of breathalyzer tests over an hour and a half after my first test at the scene of arrest. I "refused" the test but was told to cooperate or it was an automatic dui for refusal. I believe this to be misleading as I should have been able to refuse at some point, after I cooperated as much as I did. The last reading was a .12 but what is that result in comparison with the others? I think that the reliability of this particular reading should be questionable. I could have burped or had heartburn or a number of factors that could have had an effect on this particular reading. I was never taken to see the magistrate or a judge. I als o donot understand how a reading two hours after being pulled over satisfies my BAC when I was actually operating the vehicle. For these reasons among other reasons, I feel that my case should be dismissed and I should only be charged with speeding.The cop was aware of how much that I had drank that night and asked me when the last time that I ate was. He was not going to let me go until he got the results that he wanted. How do I know that the last breathalyzer test that I took was not affected by a previous test or due to the multitude of tests that I had taken in such a short period of time? I feel that my rights were not protected and that the officer was taking advantage of the fact that I was not entirely aware of my rights as this was my first arrest for driving under the influence.

(Durham, North Carolina) Durham county

what i would like to know is if i can get my dmv record sealed. i have been stopped three times in a years time and asked if i have been drinking, i dont drink any more and i feel as if im being herassed. just to give you a few details, i have had 4 dui convictions. the 1st time i was stopped i was speeding and he stopped me for that but he said he wasnt worryed about that it was weather or not i was droinking and driving. the 2ed time i as stopped he asked if i was drinking and i wasnt.the reason he gave me was, i touched the yellow line, and my understanding is that you have to cross the line. i also was in in a curve when i touched the line. just so you know this van i drive if you hit a bump in the road it bounces all over. so i bought another car. and to day i was stopped again and his reason was my seat belt, which you seat low and it hard to tell if you got it on, then he asked if i had been drinking. im so tired of this and i would like to do somet hing if i could. the last ticket is over 20 years old and i have a clean dl

I had a few drinks after work. I decided to call in an order for dinner, and I went to pick it up. After pulling back into my driveway at home, and officer pulled in behind me. He had caught me speeding 77mph in a 55mph zone. He took my registration and lisence and went back to his car. About 10 minutes later he came back with his tickets and explained them to me. He then said he smelled beer and asked him I had been drinking. I blew a 1.0. To make matters worse, I had my 3 month old baby in the back of the car with me. I am terrified of being seperated from my son. This innocent occured on 8/10/2011, and I still cannot stop crying. I cannot eat. I am a wreck because I am a good mother. I am the primary caregiver to my son, and I breastfeed. I cannot be seperated from him!

Summary:Left the state of NC while on probationCase description:I got a dui when I lived in NC. I was put on probation until the fine was paid. I left NC while on probation and still owe around $200 on the fine. I called NC they said I can send the money in the mail. When I called the court the clerk on the phone told me it would make no difference if I paid the fine or not, that I had the pending arrest and because of that pending arrest I still could not get a Drivers License until that pending arrest was rosolved. This is stopping me from getting a Drivers License in Las Vegas, NV where I currently live. Question is how would I resolve that pending arrest in Brunswick County, NC from Las Vegas, NV without going back to NC.

(Concord, North Carolina) Cabarrus county

arrested for dui, hit and run and speeding and separate seat belt ticket outstanding. Former NC Dept of Corrections Sgt. Around 2003 I was arrested for dui in Montgomery County. Arrested again for dui in Concord NC a few months later. At this arrest at a small race track in Concord NC I was driving on a SC drivers license. Another vehicle ran into me leaving a small racuiUetrack. Knowing I had been drinking I just drove on off. An officer directing traffic saw the incident and had me stopped up the road. I stopped and gave no resistance. I refused any and all test and was taken to jail where I bonded out a short time afterward. I have a prior dui from around 1994 in Albemarle NC.I was able to satisfy the Montgomery County dui charge but court in Concord came up and I was out of money for that case. Being a former Law enforcement member I got scared of doing time with people who would know I was a prison guard. I failed to appear in court and moved to florida and most recently reside in Pennsylvania. I have had no violation of the law of any kind. I have my life together but only to a point. I need to clear my record so I can get another license and get a tax paying job. My jobs have been construction type and I need a license for the jobs I am trying to get here. I really want to clear this up. I have no kids but went thru 2 bad divorces and didn't handle things right but want to get it straight. How much time to you think I am looking at when I turn myself in. Both my brothers are career law enforcement officers. One retired from probation and parole and the other with a police dept. Want to get my stuff right.

Summary:Charged with dwi and failure to appearCase description:In January of 2010, I parked on side of road to wait for my wife to pick me up as I knew I should not be driving. While waiting for my wife, a police officer pulled in behind my car to inquire as to why I was parked on the side of the road. I told him I was waiting on my wife because I knew I should not drive. He arrested me for dwi and I was cooperative and compliant. I hired an attorney who took the case which was continued several times. However, after I failed to appear due to lack of notification of the court date by mail or phone a bench warrant was issued. I turned myself in upon notification from a family member who posted original bail. After turning myself in I posted a 2000 cash bond and my court date was set for August 31.

(Winston-salem, North Carolina) Forsyth county

I am writing in regards of my husbands recent charges of a dwi. He was at a local race in Winston-Salem, NC when a cop stopped to ask him to let him know that there were teenagers throwing rocks at cars and to report anything if he saw something. After my husband got into his car and pulled out of the parking lot he turned the blue lights on and pulled him over and said when he was talking to him he thought he was very intoxicated and his eyes were red. My husband has been working many long hours at work and was honestly very tired. When the officer made him to a sobriety test he said his balance was not good , but it never has been as he is not very graceful. He was very compliant, honest and polite to the officer and did as he asked. He told the officer that he had two beers at the race but it was hours earlier and that he was very tired. During the breathalyzer test he blew a 0.08 and the officer took him to do a blood test and told him it could be up to six months before the results. The officer didn’t impound his car and pulled it to the side and said he could come get it the next day. He also didn’t take his license although the officer did misplace them and couldn’t find them (and still can‘t). When he took him to the station he told him to call someone to take him home and to let him know if he could find his license. My husband was very respectful and polite to the officer and in return the officer was very respectful to my husband and let it be known in the police report. We are very aware that the breathalyzer tests are not always accurate and we are confident the blood work will show very little alcohol content. My husband is a very hard worker and respectful man and this is his first violation of anything. We would like advice on how to go about the circumstances. We cannot afford a lot but will do what is necessary. Thank you sincerely for any help or information you can give.

Will he be sentenced to jail? If so, how long?He is an Indian whose Visa Status is H1.

(Fayetteville, North Carolina) Cumberland county

I was driving and texting through NC when I was stopped for weaving. The officers immediately jumped on the dwi bandwagon. They arrested me and not knowing the NC law, I refused the breath test and requested a blood test. That test never happened. By the time I could get my bond posted, it was over 18 hours, so needless to say, at that point a personal blood test would have been worthless. I would like to know what my options are and how to proceed. Since I drive a truck for a living, that career is gone, my lease truck was repossessed immediately, and I just want to get this over as quickly as possible. I was not able to talk to the prosecutor at all before the arraignment, and they did approve me for a court appointed attorney because I lost my job. I do not know who it is yet, but wanted some advice from an actual dwi defense attorney who knows the law more than me so I know what I am facing. Also, how is this going to affect me as I live in Okl ahoma?

(Durham, North Carolina) Durham county

At 11:30PM on 6/24/2011, I was stopped in Durham, NC on Barbbie Road (2 miles from home). I asked the officer why I was stopped and he said I was driving 7-8 miles UNDER the speed limit and that I had crossed the center line 2-3 times. He asked me if I had been drinking. I initially said no (I was nervous), but when he said he smelled alcohol, I said I had a few. I knew I had drank about 8 beer between 7:30pm and 11:15PM at poker night at a restaurant and more of those 8 at a friends house right before the stop. He gave me a field sobriety test of 9 steps turn and walk, and eye check,follow the pen. From there, he asked me to blow in his hand held unit, I agreed, and I listed a .22 (I hadn't eaten and had drank 6 of those 8 beers within the last 1.5 hours at my friends house so I knew I was in trouble). He didn't read me any rights, but I was polite as he handcuffed me, sat me in the front seat with him, chatted with me as he took me to downtown Durh am station for the official test and then booking+magistrate. There, at 1:13AM, now 6/25/2011, I officially blew a .18. He is listed as a certified tester so he administered this test himself. He read me my rights of 30 mins to contact a witness, I tried, but could not reach anyone. I was then booked and charged, waited for the magistrated that set my bail at 2500.00. I called a sober friend, he came, helped me get the money, and I was released to his customer after posting bail around 5AM. My court date i2 8/8/2011.

I have been convicted of 2 dwi's within 6 months of each other (each within a mile of my home & no one was injured). I went through a horrendous separation which included spousal abuse, an affair, and loss of part of my retirement funds due to transfers without my consent or knowledge. I have records proving all of this. Is there any possible way to have my hearing stepped up so that I could get my restricted driver's license granted earlier than the projected date? I need it to obtain and maintain employment. I am a 56 year old female and the only means of transportation I am eligible for at this time is a scooter. My mother is approaching 85 years of age and could greatly benefit from my ability to drive. Is there anything I can do? Please lead me in the right direction and if it isn't possible, please let me know. I am entering my 12th month of sobriety.

I am a first time offender in NC. How do I determain what "Level" 1-5, do I fall into? The research that I have found indicates that by determaining what "level" I am in as a first time offender I will thereby be able to determain my likely sentencing, fines, etc......It was indicated to me by my arresting officer that there is a mandatory lose of license for 30days starting the day of the offense and at the end of that 30day period there is a $100 fee to regain my license. Beyond that I would really apprectiate any information that would allow me to plan/prepare for any further sentencing/fines/lose of license.

(Advance, North Carolina) Davie county

it started off over a year ago. I was in between having caretakers and had chest pain radiating down my right arm. I pulled over 5 minutes from home into a church parking lot when severe exhaustion stated. Within a few minutes a Trooper pulled in. I thought he was going to ask if I was ok. My car was still running because sweats had started. When I went to the court date on ticjet I was not even on the docket. They let me get a court appointed attorney. He sent 3 different letters with wrong court dates and had only taled to me for no more than 10 minutes. I have been mostly beddridden for since having to quit my job due to illness since about 2003. I only had a few good days and had a caregiver until disability gave the biggest raise they had. It cost me my medicaid over $2/month. I had been treated unfairly at hospitals before so I called until finally someone was going to go with me. I was on the way to pick her up when all this dwi charge began. The ba d and sad part was the exhaustion was so bad I could not inform the officer I was in Medical Distress. When I pulled in the parking lot all I could think of was who could getme back home if no one else could take me and go with me. Or shouyld I sleep in car until feeling more rested.I attended every court date despite drs note until the last 3. I had 2 differenerent Drs notes. I had never been in trouble before. I tried doing all the test the trooper gave me I have no balance and fall often. so much more to this

(Hillsborough, North Carolina) Orange county

During the 1990's and early 2000's while being treated for multiple health issues (leukemia and spinal injuries) and many pharmaceutical drugs at Duke University Hospital and VA-Durham, I received 2 (95 and other year unknown and most recent case from 2002) and possibly 3 dui's at which time I was placed on probabtion. I was found in violation of the probation and was sent to jail for a 1 year sentence with early release after 4 months and a stint in DART Cherry drug and alcohol drug treatment program (28 day). Now, many years later, I am being told that I have an outstanding case in Orange County from 2002 even though that occurred before I was sent to jail on the 2nd charge....I was told I refused a blood test for the prescription pills??? I still have significant health issues, but I felt I would be able to drive since I am no longer on the prescription drugs that led to many bouts with the law. The fact is, is that I do NOT remember about 10 years of my life due to th emedicated state I was in under a licensed physicians care. So, I need direction on how to clear this case without undue hardship with ongoing health challenges. Thank you for your time and assistance.

(Goldsboro, North Carolina) Wayne county

I was out at a friends house drinking late in the evening i turned over my keys to my friend and went to sleep upstaires (I have a written statement from that Person)that is the last thing i remember. The next thing i can recall is being pulled over by a police officer. He performed a breathalizer at the sceane but i do not have the result. I have the result from the one he took at the police station. It was a .18. I am also charged with a reckless driving because at the time i was driving 89mph in a 55mph zone. Again i have no memory of this. My unusual circumstane is that i was blacked out the entire time and also i was on the prescription drug chantix which in several reports has caused Blackouts and changes in behavior along with several other severe mental side effects. I have no criminal record and this is my first time in court besides 1 minor speeding ticket i have had in my life. I also serve in the US Air Force. I think that the drug i took made me blackout and i was unaware of what i was doing at the time of the inncident. I would like to know if this can be used in my defence at my trial?

My son was arrested for dui in Greenville approximately a year and a half ago. He was told to do the classroom time for substance abuse. His case went to trial within the last two weeks and the result was a license suspension for a year. This is his first offense. Is there any kind of program he can enter that would allow his license to be returned conditionally so that he can work/commute to college?

(Beulaville, North Carolina) Duplin county

Back in 2003, I was arrested on while driving intoxicated. I spent the night in jail, posted bail and came back to court. I was ordered to pay restitution and 40 hours community service which I never completed because I moved back to Connecticut. I am not sure what to do. My license was suspended as well.

(Asheboro, North Carolina) Randolph county

I rear ended the truck in front of me. No one in either vehicle was hurt. I did not blow on the scene. My test consisted only of walking a white line 9 steps forward heel to toe turn repeat. I did this with no problem. I was not givin any other type of test on the scene. The officer directed me to sit on the curb while he sole with the other driver. He came back to me and explained what he gathered so far and informed me that I was under arrest for dwi at which time I was cuffed and taken to jail. Once there I was given a breathalyzer. I blew a .16. I was never taken to a holding cell or searched on the scene or in the jail house. Within the hour the magistrate let me sign myself out on a promise to appear. When asked by the magistrate both of the arresting officers vouched for me saying that I was cooperative, I never gave one problem, and that in their opinion I was sober enough to sign myself out.

I just went to court a few days ago and they would not here my case because i was told they are going to turn this 4th dwi from a misdemenor to a felony.

(Greensboro, North Carolina) Guilford county

arrested after mechanical failure of my braking system landed me in an accident. upon arrival of the police officer i was given a field sobriety test. was taken downtown where i was tested on one of the older model sobriety test machines. the officer indicated that they hardley ever use that machine, and in most case the door is opened in the room to allow for an accurate calibration of the sobriety test unit. this was not the case when i was tested. My results came back as having a BAC of 0.18

(Hendersonville, North Carolina) Henderson county

I was convicted of dui in NC in Oct 2007.Can I still obtain a drivers license without taking alcohol abuse classes? Is there a statute of limitations on getting a drivers license without complete alcohol classes?

(Jacksonville, North Carolina) Onslow county

I was stopped at a check-point and was asked where I was coming from. After the 3rd attempt of trying to get the right words out, I was asked to step out of the vehicle. The Officer asked me to follow his finger with only my eyes...I did. He then asked me to walk heal-to-toe 9 paces...turn around and walk 9 paces back. I did with a little off balance around the 7th step on the first 9 paces. After that, the Officer gave me a breathalizer (no refusal) and I blew .07. I was handcuffed and taken to the station. While the Officer was filling out paperwork and asking me questions (which seemed to take about 40 minutes or so) I was told I was being very cooperative with the whole sitution. I was then asked to take another breathalizer...and I did not refuse. It was a two part test...I blow twice within 2 or so minutes and they take the lowest reading. My first blow was .15 and my second was .13. I am with the USMC so I am aware I am going to catch a handful from the military but I also understand what the military does to me doesn't/won't hold any weight in regards to Civil. However, I am concerned with one thing...on the scene, I blew .07 and was 3 minutes from my house...and at the station, I blew .13...approximately 40 or so minutes later. I know .07 is still under the influence, but not intoxicated at that time and I would have been home prior to my BAC reaching .13.

(Roxboro, North Carolina) Person county

(Cary, North Carolina) Wake county

On 4/28 2011 I was at the TimeOUT Sports Bar. I left around 1:00a. promptly after leaving the bar, I was pulled over and the officer stated I swurved and stated he smelled the presence of alcohol (of course I just a Sports Bar). He took me downtown where I blew a .09. When I got to the station I noticed that there were about 10 other people from the same Sports Bar I came from that were arrested fro the same reason. I dont see how that many people from one place can be arrested separetly fro the same offense...Why were so many of these officers in this particular area. They were just sitting around, targeting this bar , waiting for people to leave. Even though i was drinking and yes i blew a .09 but I dont feel the officer had a right to pull me over. And it became even more disturbing when I see a jail room full of the same people I was at the Bar with. I feel like this is entrapment.

(Cary, North Carolina) Wake county

I was leaving a Sports Bar when the police pulled me over. He stated I swurved across the line. He stated he smelled the presence of alcohol and administered a test. I blew a.09 at the station. When I arrived at the station, there were about 10 othre people that had been arrested from the same Sports Bar that I left from. I belive this is entrapment because there is no way that this many people from the same Sports bar were targeted for arrest. Im not sure how far I can get with this but it was very disturbing when 10 people, 5-6 differnet cars from the same Sports bar are arrested. They were just sitting there waiting for people to leave. Thats entrapment.

(Pineville, North Carolina) Mecklenburg county

I was stopped due to not having my lights on after dark. Took the field test and then the breath test, tested .14 was processed and released a few hours later. No bail was set, this was my first offense and clean driving record. I am not sure what I am looking at as far as conviction and punishment. Is this going to effect my job and wll I be able to get a license to drive back and forth to work? What kind of fees will I be looking at and how can I start to get this corrected??

(Asheville, North Carolina) Buncombe county

(Castle Hayne, North Carolina) New Hanover county

I plead guilty in Florida to a dui after continually requesting a trial. I had moved to Kentucky and had to fly to palm beach county for all my continuances caused by my public defender being changed 3 times. I believed that I would be found not guilty, but when I flew down (for the 5th time) for what my public defender told me was going be my trial, and ended up being another continuance. So, having run out of funds, I plead guilty on 9/12/08 to dui

I've had a previous dui in Cali. over 10 years ago or more and they have no record of why it's not off the record either but the state of Cali. has a hold for me to get any license and when i call to see how much i need to pay they can't find my records. As far as the dui here in North Carolina I just need a Attorney to help with that case.

(Mocksville, North Carolina) Davie county

This was my first arrest for dwi. It happened in North Carolina on 11/17/10. I had a BAL of .15. In North Carolina they automatically require an ignition interlock system for .15 or higher. I will be starting a job in the Michigan City area, and wonder if I will be required to get one in Indiana.

(Monroe, North Carolina) Union county

I received a citation to appear in court in regards to a dwi / dui back in 2002. I hired a lawyer at the time and appeared several times in court on the matter even though I lived in a neighboring state. After a while I was no longer able to appear because I relocated to the North East region of the U.S. as a result this matter had been neglected and my license suspended. Now that I'm at a much better stable point in my life I am trying to resolve this matter . I currently live in Dallas, TX. and can't afford to travel back and forth to resolve this matter . I need for this case docket to be reopened and resolved of effectively without to many ramifications involved.

(Charlotte, North Carolina) Mecklenburg county

I was stopped by local PD after I apparently appeared to be talking on my cell phone and not adequately paying attention to my driving. I had just purchsed a beer from a local gas station, and I guess the PD saw me walk back to my vehicle with the beer. I opened the can, and took a sip...and the officer pulled me over. Charged with 'open container' and 'drinking by driver'. I went to the DA to pay the fine, but was told I must appear in court. Do I need an attorney, or can I appear in front of the Court, pro se? Thanks

(Fort Bragg, North Carolina) Cumberland county

Was pulled over heading north on nc87. Was pulled over for speeding and once pulled over was asked to blow in a device that which tested positive or negative I'm pretty sure is whatthe trooper said. I was then asked to please step out of the vehicle and please move to the back of my truck. I was then handcuffed and move to the troopers vehicle. trooper did not read rights to me before booking me. Then I went to the state highway patrol office in down town Fayetteville. Was asked to have a seat till everything was ready. Once ready I was taken to the booth read my rights, finally, after a half hour has gone by since the arrest was made. I was given a breathalyzer taken 3 times to be sure of content. Blew a .10 I got all paperwork from that night. I was then given the field sobriety test. Passed every test from my understanding from trooper Tyler. I was then fingerprinted, picture taken, and license taken from the magistrate. Told me himself in 30 days of the offense I could re turn tothe county clerks office pay 100 dollars and get my license back. As for the charges themselves a dui and reckless driving was charged. June 1st is the court date. April 7th at 230am is when this happened. Just trying to get some advice on what I could do to win this.

(Greensboro, North Carolina) Guilford county

This is my 3rd offense. I was not intoxicated, the officer pulled up on me in a parking lot where I was sitting in my car. I was getting ready to make a phone call. When he approached my vehicle, I asked was there a problem? He asked me was I ok, I said yes, just tired and the roads are slick. He then asked me for my drivers license. I complied. He went back to his patrol car and when he came back he asked me to step out of the car. When he started the field sobriety exam, he asked did I have any physical ailments. I told him I have bad knees and bad feet. He did the eye exam, and the one leg up stand as well. After the exam, he stepped away for a sec, and spoke with an another officer and then she stated "It's your call, whatever you want to do". And that's when I was arrested. I asked why, he said we would talk about it. So finally as I'm in the holding room after I refused to blow, he came back and said you are being charged with dui, and I asked for being in theparking lot? The officer then replied, no when you made that right turn you almost hit my patrol car. I then replied ok.

(Goldsboro, North Carolina) Wayne county

My dad has a pending case in Goldsboro, NC for a dui that happened in 1985. He never went to trial, there was never a court date set, yet this is holding up his ability to get a driver's license in PA now, since NC is showing a dui that was never satisfied. The arresting officer has passed away. We cannot seem to find a resolution for this situation.

(Asheville, North Carolina) Buncombe county

I was arrested for dui in Buncombe County, NC in August 2002. I was asleep behind the wheel, woke up in handcuffs (in the middle of the road no less), and noticed Buncombe County Sheriffs searching my car. I asked if I was under arrest and what the charge was. I was not given a sobriety test at the scene, I was told to wait for the NC state trooper to arrive to transport me to jail. Once in jail (almost 90 minutes later) I was administered 2 breathalyzer tests, both reading 0.11 BAC. I was released to a sober friend and to report to court 30 days later.Approximately a month before, I was charged with open container and misdemeanor marijuana possession. With those charges pending, I never showed up for court on any of the above offenses. I am now approaching 30 years old and have changed my lifestyle and no longer live in NC. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about clearing my name and getting my drivers license back. Any help is much appreciatedThank you

I do not make very much money and barely make enough to pay for rent and food and medicine. Please help if you can.

(Holly Springs, North Carolina) Wake county

I was arrested for a dwi February of `09. I blew .15.We dragged it through court for a year all the while my lawyer saying I wouldn`t need to have a breathalizer installed. Wrong. And many other things came to light that my lawyer had not advised me of the whole year prior. I did my mandatory classes and community service. I also had a 45 revocation of my lisence. My question is: I have not had my lisence or driven in over a year now. Would that in any way negate the breathalizer having to be put in my vehicle ? Thank You for your response.

(Wilmington, North Carolina) New Hanover county

Our 25yr old son was arrested 3/26/11 for dwi also driving with a revoked license. He was driving a stolen truck that belongs to his Grandfather whom had reported stolen later the same day. The police may not realize yet the truck was stolen because they have de name Robert R Howell. Our son is the 3rd not Sr. I'm sure he did not point that out. Nor the fact he was released from Pender Cty.Jail 3 days ago...for prob.violations. New Hanover Cty Judge has already had him in the Dart Cherry program for 90 days and he served 3 months in jail prior waiting for space in program. That was summer 2010 @ he released late fall last year. We have had a mental evaluation done by neuropsychologist Dr.Cristy Jones which states that he needs to be in a mental inst.for a long period of time due to. Damage done to his frontal lobe from Very high dosages of cold pill Ccc or Coricidin 11yr using everyday possible. My question is the court EVER going to insitutionalize h before he kills someo neincluding him self??!! They keep putting him in jail or drug programs when in a locked down Mental Faciliy for somete before he will ever regain any impulse control. He is very mentally sick and dangerous. Can any lawyer help to get him committed? We are at the end of our rope....Thank you for your time reading this. We would appreciate any help or guidance.

This is research for a paper. Driver was found asleep in his car on the side of the interstate at 2 am. The engine was not running but the wipers and turn signal are on. driver left a bachelor party at 1:30 from a location 20 miles from where he stopped to sleep. he had another 40 to go and figured out he couldn't drive. The driver's defense is he couldn't operate a vehicle in his unconscious state. The prosecutor says the key in the ignition is enough to prove intent. In NC who would be right?

(Salisbury, North Carolina) Rowan county

I had given someone a ride to the liquor store. I purchased what they wanted because they said they needed to go pick up the money and I was short on gas but the liquor store was about to close. Long story short he didn't get the money and I arrived BACK at the liquor store to try and return it. There were no parking spaces near the store so I parked in front of the next store, went in was told they don't take returns, asked if I had opened the liquor like I was going to try and return open liquor, and was leaving. The Sheriff's Deputy went out in front of me, stopped me, asked me if I had been drinking. I told him I had 2 beers earlier. He said he could smell alcohol and asked if I had been driving. I told him I had driven but was going to walk because the guy had run my gas out. He said how was I going to get my truck home. I told him I could call my wife. He said fine... We walked to my truck,another officer camethe one that does the breathalyzer laterthe keys were on the seat,he took them along with my billfold and put it on the hood,he asked if he could search the truck, I said yes,,, I couldn't remember her number and had left in a hurry and didn't have my phone...I told him my wife had a friend that was a officerwe were getting the truck from her to please call her and have her call my wife...We went back to his patrol car and sat down,my wife's friend calls final

My daughter was arrested over 1 year 2 months ago for dui and underage drinking. She was 20 at the and blew.001 over the limit. Was picked up for "swerving" according to the police. She was living in North Carolina at the time with her mother and has an Ohio drivers license. She has had several court dates... including today and again the hearing was postponed because the judge was not available. In the past, the delays were for various reasons. She has her license back and has been driving for over a year. At what point does the limitations of a speedy trial put an end to this. She is going to be 22 years old soon and starting a new job. Is it possible for the court to still charge her over a year later?

On 3/13/11, I was pulled over by a NC SHP trooper, for doing 64mph in a 45mph zone. I had a drank beer that day. I was arrested for dwi, and blew 0.14. I have not had a dwi since 2001. No children, or open containers were in the vehicle. I also have a DWLR charge. I have 3 prior DWLR convictions within the last 7 years. I am still paying on those, and have several 'failure to pays' in the system. I was extremely cooperative, and was released without bond, into the custody of my pastor. I have a wife, 4 kids, and a granddaughter in my home. I am the sole breadwinner, and have been at my job for almost 6 years. If I am sentenced to go to jail, I will lose everything. Please help.

My husband was previously in a car wreck. Between 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. he had a total of 7 beers. On his way home he was ran off the road into a pole. He was rushed to hospital to get surgery done on his ancle. He was not arrested. There were 2 witnesses who said it was not his fault. They took blood work when he was at the hospital. He has not gotten the results of his blood work to see what his alcohol level was, nor has he seen his police report all he was told is he has a pending dwi. He now received a letter from court stating that he needs to appear in court on June 9, 2011. I will be picking up both reports next week. Also the cop who wrote the report was not there very long because he had another call so he left immediately. I believe he is being wrongly charged.

leaving a bar, a cop followed me because the tires allegedly screeched. For 6 miles, through 3 traffic lights, the officer followed and watched me pull into the hotel I was staying at. I then saw flashing lights and was asked to get out of the vehicle. I was asked to walk in a straight line, stand on one foot and count until the officer said to stop, where I got to 23, then asked to switch feet and do it again, where I got to 27. I was then arrested then placed in the vehicle, told the person I was with was going to be hit with charges because they owned the vehicle and taken to processing. Once in processing I was read my rights for the first time, and refused to speak without an attorney. At processing I also took the first breathalizer and blew .09 then 2 minutes later was asked to repeat the test and went to .10. They recorded the .09 as the BAC and I was transferred to holding. There I stayed over night until picked up. The timeline was a 0130 arrest, 0230 breathalizer, 0330 holding. I just want to know my options. No priors, last ticket was 2 years ago for following too closely.

I stopped drinking at approxamently 140 a.m. Sat in my car and did not start driving until approxment 5:30 a.m. I got a flat tire and tried to drive the car to the nearest place I could exit hwy 64 to be safer. I was only drive approx 5 miles an hour with my flashers on. A cop came up behind my car and pulled me over because my tire had seperated from the rim and he noticed it was flat. At that time he approched the vehicle and said my eyes looked glossy and I had the smell of alcohol on my breath. I told him I had been drinking and the location. Also that I had stopped around the time stated above. I informed him that my eyes were red because I had my contacts in and that the reason I was trying to make it some where safe is because that was my spare tire I had put on the car earlier and got all dirty that had flatened and I had no other spares. I had a piece of gum that I had put in my mouth right before he pulled me over and he asked me to spit it out. Then admi nsteredthe PBT, After that he asked me to step out of the car and gave me two test the heel toe and the one legged stand. I was shivering the whole time because it was freezing outside. Then he gave me a second test. Then he placed me under arrested and never read me my miranda rights once. Took me to the station for the observation period had me blow in the machine there. It did register the first two times I blew. Then on the last two times it did. Then they put me in jail

Can a person with prior DUIs be charged with dui upon the report of another person, but not having been caught in the act. A minor child was in the car and DSS has been notified. the driver in question removed the child from what he considered harms way and called for help. (I know this is not rational). Should he admit the truth to DSS, deny it, call a lawyer? As his mother, I know he has not been driving for many years and this was poor judgement, but an unusual circumstance.

(Raleigh, North Carolina) Wake county

This is an very unique case and I am desperate for help. I don't whether i should talk to a lawyer first or should i talk to the policy officer and clarify things. I'm twenty and a college student and i was driving with alcohol in my system. I made an illegal turn and was pulled over by an officer. I was very honest and admitted my wrong doing. I blowed a 0.02% on the breathalyser so the officer stated "you've been really cool to me, so i'm going to cool to you." and he let me go with a warning and stated "i want you to make an U turn and park in that parking lot until next morning. Call someone to pick you up". And i did. Instead, my apartment was about a football field length away. So i asked my roommate to come and drive me back in my car. I didn't think it would cause an misunderstanding. Before my friend came, i went over to a pizza place which was about 30 yards from where i parked. Then someone drove by and left an parking violation and on it, it says my car will be towed at owner's expense. My roommate came by a minute later and drove me back.That was just the beginning of my case.This morning, i had two cops banging on my door and they said they had an warrant for my arrest and hand cuffed me on the spot. They took me to downtown station and after 2-3 hours of paperwork/holding, i finally got to talk to the magistrate and figure out the officer issued the warrant/arrest based on "probable cause to believe" that i operated vehicle.What options do i have? I would like the charges dropped.

I was arrested for a dui in 2004. I had had a prior dui as well. I am in the military and was deployed to New Orleans, LA in support of operation Katrina and could not make it to court. I got a voice mail saying my case was dismissed. At the same time I was fighting the prior dui and there was a case of double jeopardy. I thought I had already been dismissed of the prior and the voice mail saying my case was dismissed was for the secondary, but was actually for the prior. I don't know if my case in chaple hill (the secondary dui case) is still open or the status of it or what-not. I know I can not get a license in any 50 states though and would like to resolve this situation and was just looking for information on my case, what the statutes of limitations are, and what can become of this case.

3 convictions dwi within 7 years. Last DWIconviction in 1987 or '88. Driver's license perm. revoked. Never tried to obtain license because I cont'd to drink. Quit drinking 6 years ago due to birth of g-sons. Changed life completely. Finally requested hearing, was caught driving several times. Good lawyer- cases thrown out of court x 3. 1 prayer of judgment. Finally obtained hearing-turned down- understandable. However, just had 2nd hearing and turned down. I have not driven at all or been in any trouble. Not able to drive has caused severe hardships resulting in losing my house. Hearing officer different this time and unreasonable. I have proven beyond doubt that I quit drinking 6 years ago and will never go back to that life. I have paid my debt for crime over and above! I have talked to lawyers in past ( not dwi specialists), all said nothing could be done. I need help desperately!

I received a dwi 11/22/2010, I had a dwi in 2004, I had a physical test and a breathalyzer test = 0.18. I had just turned into my driveway when the sherriff pulled in behind me. I am very cooperative with the law, unfortunately for me, I disobeyed the law by drinking and driving. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist and am worried about what to do about getting to and from work. I just would like to know what to expect in my jurisdiction and what are the outcomes to expect.
