Miami Police Misconduct Attorney

Police Misconduct in DUI Cases

Law enforcement officers are required to adhere to strict regulations when it comes to DUI stops and arrests. They cannot stop you without due cause and they cannot arrest you without adequate evidence of intoxication.

In order to make a legal DUI stop, an officer must have witnessed certain signs that indicate a motorist may be driving while drunk. This includes weaving, irregular speed, ignoring traffic signs and signals, driving at night without headlights, and more.

DUI checkpoints must also follow strict regulations. Police officers must not be selective about which vehicles or persons they stop; it must be a set pattern, such as every car, every third car, etc. Officers must never be abusive or use excessive force unless the suspect is belligerent or resistant. They must also conduct field sobriety tests and breathalyzer tests correctly so that the results are true.

If an officer makes a mistake while conducting an SFST or while administering the breath test, a false negative could occur, resulting in a wrongful arrest. If you are the victim of any such police misconduct, speak with a Miami DUI defense lawyer right away.
