Police reported that Hutchinson III was confused about his direction of travel prior to the motor vehicle accident. Police did not report how they determined that Hutchinson III’s confusion was due to a concussion received in the high speed crash to the guardrail. #SonOfArkansasGovernorArrestedForDWI
Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI: The state police indicated that a firefighter summonsed to the crash site reported smelling an alcoholic beverage odor in Hutchinson III’s vehicle. The state police then noticed such odor on Hutchinson’s breath while speaking with him. The police report indicates that Hutchinson’s eyes were blood shot and watery and he had slurred speech. The Police did not indicate how they determined that watery eyes were caused by a blood alcohol level over the legal limit. The police did not explain how they determined that the blood shot eyes were not the product of the late hour, allergies or some other environmental factor.
Son of Arkansas Governor Arrested For DWI: The police apparently attempted to administer the horizontal gaze nystagmus test to Hutchinson III. The HGN test is hard to administer properly and there is significant evidence that HGN clues are often present in persons with no Blood Alcohol content and well as persons with low Blood Alcohol Contents. Hutchinson III was charged with DWI, careless driving and refusal to undergo the evidential breath test. His court date in the Fayetteville District Court is set for February 22, 2016. #SonOfArkansasGovernorArrestedForDWI

Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Lawyers: In the summer of 2015, Nick Diaz picked up a number of serious traffic charges including two DWIs. Diaz is a UFC fighter who has done very well in the UFC. Diaz picked up his two DWIs in Lodi, California. Diaz was able to work out a very good plea agreement. Essentially, he entered a guilty plea to the first DWI and the second was dismissed along with several other associated traffic charges. Diaz will have to pull a few of incarceration because his first DWI conviction was for a Blood Alcohol Content above the mandatory incarceration range. Diaz also picked up three years of probation and a mandatory alcohol education class as well as a suspended license.
Diaz should have had Bob’s FREE APP for dealing with the Police. Using the App, Diaz would have refused to discuss his situation by politely asking for a lawyer. He would not have given the officer his drinking history, if any, or the location of any such drinking. Diaz would not have provided a time line to help the prosecution if such time line was necessary.
Diaz would have refused the standardized field sobriety tests which are voluntary. Without the field tests, it would have been much harder to establish probable cause to arrest Diaz for DWI either time.
Diaz would have refused the preliminary breath test which is a search and is also voluntary. Diaz would have submitted to the evidential blood or breath but he would have made it clear that such submission was involuntary but occurring due to threat, coercion and duress. #harrisonburgrecklessdrivinglawyers

Top Rockingham County Reckless Driving Lawyer: Several years ago Scott Wilson, an American Actor in his 70s was stopped for a possible DUI. The relevant Officers insisted that Wilson perform the field sobriety tests. They did so even though the standardized field tests were originally vetted for persons no older than 60 years of age. Some time thereafter the tests were claimed to be available to drivers as old as 65 even though no new validation studies were attempted. Even though Wilson was too old for the tests to provide a valid correct arrest decision the officers used them to justify his DUI arrest. This is one of the problems with the current use of the standardized field sobriety tests — the officers use them as impairment tests rather than as indicators of a blood alcohol level above or below the legal limit. The investigators who developed the tests were very clear that roadside impairment tests could not be conducted at roadside. Instead, they developed roadside tests that could project a probability of a blood alcohol content above or below the legal limit. Officers need to understand a proper use of the roadside tests to make a correct arrest decision.
