Arizona and the White Hat DUI, Pretexting, and SB1070

Arizona DUI Lawyer David Cantor talks about White Hat DUI. Police Officers, Prosecutors, and Defense Attorneys in Arizona are familiar with the practice of pulling over drivers wearing White Cowboy hats as this can indicate that the driver is hispanic. It is a form of pre-texting or entrapment and David asks how this practice will be affected by SB 1070.

AZ Labor Day 2010 DUI Task Force Results

Arizona DUI Attorney, David Cantor, reviews the results of the recent AZ Annual Labor Day DUI Task Force. This year more than 6000 cops participated in over 37,000 pullovers. While there were more DUI arrests made this year over last year, DUI Penalty advocates claim that with the higher number of officers and pullovers the increase is lower than expected. Thus allowing them to claim that DUI penalties are reducing the number of Drunk Drivers. While this may be David takes a look at another statistic that gives him pause: the number of designated drivers pulled over was 700. This is a pretty high number of DD’s to be pulled over which tells David that this is because the cops are targeting certain areas, such as bars, and pulling people over just for pulling out of the parking lot.

What to Do if You’re Charged with Underage Drinking and Driving

If you have been charged with Underage Drinking and Driving and you’re a minor, you’re going to require a skilled Arizona Juvenile Attorney.

The main dui defenses for Underage Drinking and Driving are:

  • “No Reasonable Suspicion to Stop” Officers are not permitted to stop or detain someone based on pretexts regarding race, religion, gender, age, sexual preference nor on a host of other possible unjustifiable reasons.
  • “No Actual Physical Control” If a person has had too much to drink, pulls off the roadway, leaves the engine running with the A/C or heater on, and attempts to “sleep it off”, then they are not in “actual physical control” of their vehicle and are not guilty of DUI, DWI, or Underage Drink and Drive.
  • “No Probable Cause for Arrest” If an officer did not have probable cause that a person had consumed alcohol, then the arrest will be invalidated (i.e. if the Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs) were improperly administered). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has set forth guidelines regarding FSTs. The tests should not be given if the suspect:
    • is 50 pounds or more overweight
    • has any back, hip, leg, knee, or ankle injuries
    • has any disability effecting balance
    • is wearing shoes with heels two (2) inches or higher
