Each year, well over 100,000 individuals in Arizona are stopped and investigated for DUI. However, research shows many people arrested and charged with DUI are not guilty because they haven’t had too much to drink. In many cases, police officers who are overzealous, improperly trained, or who otherwise make mistakes, incorrectly determine a driver who has been drinking is driving while under the influence. Field sobriety tests can be improperly administered and misinterpreted. Breath and blood alcohol testing equipment can malfunction or be improperly used. DUI suspects can be treated unfairly, resulting in important constitutional rights not being provided.
