TIPS FOR AVOIDING TROUBLE WITH DWI OVER THE HOLIDAYS

Like many of you, I enjoy celebrating with good friends, food, and drinks on New Year's Eve. Because I will drInk alcohol, I will certainly take a taxi or Uber home, I hope you will do the same. Driving drunk is very risky from a safety standpoint, and a DWI arrest can cost you thousands of dollars, time in jail and/or your driver's license. Please do not drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

If arrested for DWI, how can I know if I need an attorney?

The safest answer to the question posed above is simple. Anyone arrested in Arkansas for any criminal charge should get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible. You might not feel you 'need' an attorney, but you do. You have a right to one for any interaction with the police, and it can be beneficial for protecting your rights.

Smartphone app helps get guy out of drunk driving trouble

Refusing a Breathalyzer: What you need to know

When you are pulled over because an officer suspects you of driving under the influence of alcohol, one of the first things you may be asked to do is step out of the car for a field sobriety test. While these often include basic exercises in balance and counting, the officer is also likely to ask you to take a Breathalyzer test. It's important to understand the implications this could have on your case later on and what happens if you refuse.

Understanding more about DWI and license suspension

In the immediate aftermath of an arrest for driving while intoxicated, it's understandable if your foremost concern is whether you will have to spend any amount of time behind bars. After all, incarceration could mean time away from school, work and, most significantly, family.

You've been charged with DUI: time to consider those defenses

OK, so an Arkansas police officer stopped you, subjected you to a battery of roadside tests, pronounced an opinion that you were driving drunk and arrested you. You were subsequently charged with DWI and now face some serious potential exactions.
