Let’s talk about a typical process of a DUI case in Las Vegas?

When reviewing your case and explaining your potential defenses, some key areas are examined:

Did the officer have a legal reason to stop your vehicle?

Referred to as “probable cause,” there has to be a legitimate reason to pull you over.  Usually this is for a minor traffic infraction. Those could range from changing lanes without signaling to not having your headlights on after dusk. Other examples are having a burnt out tail light, going at least a mile an hour over the speed limit.  Examples also include making a U-turn in a “no u-turn” zone, etc.  However, driving slowly, movement within your lane, sleeping in your vehicle and other behaviors may not be sufficient probable cause, and those will become parts of your defense.

Did the officer have a reason to have you exit the vehicle, and to perform Field Sobriety Tests?

Once you are stopped, there has to be a reason that the officer suspects you are under the influence of alcohol to have you perform Field Sobriety Tests.  These are the tests where he moves a finger in front of your face, you walk heel-to-toe, or stand on one leg.  Usually, these tests are given because the driver admits to drinking.  And pretty much everyone stopped says, “two beers,” or, “a couple of beers.”

Please pay attention to this section

Never say that you have been drinking, because it gives the police the reason to test and arrest you – you will not get lenience for honesty at this point of a traffic stop!.  The officer will indicate on his report that you had red cheeks, glassy or red eyes, slurred speech, clumsy movement, etc. and you may have medical conditions, contact lenses or other issues that cause such appearance or behavior.
