Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Help: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope plays professional basketball for the Detroit Pistons.  In late March of 2017 Caldwell-Pope was arrested by Auburn Hills police on suspicion of DUI.  Caldwell-Pope was originally stopped for driving 20 miles per hour over the posted 25 mile per hour speed limit.  Of course, speeding is not a NHTSA impaired driving clue.  Actually, most impaired drivers drive well under the speed limit due to their diminished fine and gross motor control and cognitive impairment.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Help: Caldwell-Pope allowed himself to be talked into attempting the roadside agility tests designed to create probable cause in anyone impaired or not.  The police tell you that they want to see if you are safe to drive giving you false hope you will be released.  Very, very few people get released.  Caldwell-Pope did not know that he should refuse these rigged roadside tests, got arrested and blew into the government’s breath test gadget.  He received a number in excess of the 0.08 grams per 210 liters of breath Michigan legal limit.  It is interesting to note that the government agencies using breath tests to obtain blood test results never draw blood at the same time and check the correlation between the two.  If you checked breath against blood then you would have a better chance of matching the two.  Accuracy is not important in the witch hunt that DUI in America has become.

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Help: Caldwell-Pope was drafted in 2013 with the Piston’s eighth overall pick.  In his four seasons, he has averaged almost 12 points a game and is shooting about 33 percent from three point territory.  Caldwell-Pope is a restricted free agent when the season ends and could make over $20 Million each season under the NBA’s salary cap scheme.
