Lowering the blood-alcohol content (BAC) cutoff to 0.05: Sheriff says “you can count me out on that one”

Milwaukee County Sherriff David Clarke has a reputation for cracking down on drunk drivers and pushing for tougher drunk driving laws. The new proposal that would decrease the legal limit from 0.08 to 0.05, however, isn’t exactly what he had in mind. In Milwaukee, the average drunk driver has a BAC over 0.15; almost twice the legal limit. These individuals, Clarke believes, are the ones law enforcement officers in Wisconsin should be concerned with, not the social drinker who can ... Read More »

Illegal Immigrants to Practice Law in California

In the waning hours of the legislative session on Thursday, a California bill to let undocumented immigrants become lawyers passed the state Assembly and now lies in the hands of Governor Jerry Brown. This bill would allow qualified applicants to become licensed as a lawyer regardless of their immigration status pending California Supreme Court approval.

No Warrant, No Blood

The United States Supreme Court held in Missouri v. McNeely that forcing an unwilling suspect to have their blood drawn without first securing a warrant is a violation of their Fourth Amendment rights. The Supreme Court concluded that the exigency exception to the warrant requirement did not apply in routine DUI cases because the simple fact that blood alcohol levels dissipate over time did not constitute an emergency. In drunk-driving investigations, officers must typically take the suspect to a medical ... Read More »

How Much is Too Much?

In order to prevent over-serving at bars, many states have adopted what is known as the Dram Shop Act. The Dram Shop Act allows victims and the families of victims to sue the bar or establishment that served alcohol to a drunken individual that subsequently injured someone in a drunken driving accident. These alcohol infractions are regulated by the Department of Revenue who will strip bars and bartenders of their licenses if found to be repeatedly over-serving. Georgia is one ... Read More »

Try getting past this one!

Marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines are just a few of the many different controlled substances that Swedish researchers have found can be detected by a commercially available breathing test device.  A control group of 47 individuals, who had taken a variety of drugs less than 24 hours prior, were tested to check the accuracy of the device.

Laws requiring breathalyzers in the cars of DUI offenders has reached 18 states and counting

Maine is the newest state to propose a bill that would allow first time and habitual DUI offenders to cut down on their license suspensions by having a breathalyzer installed in their vehicles. The breathalyzer, also known as the ignition interlock device (IID), is a device wired to a vehicle’s ignition that requires a breath sample from the driver before the engine will start. A photo of the driver is taken while the sample is being given and transmitted to ... Read More »

DUI checkpoints near baseball stadiums hits home for Angels fans

After celebrating the New York Yankees 5-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays, Yankee fans left the stadium in a hurry in the hopes of beating the post-game traffic only to be stopped minutes later by the four police DUI checkpoints that were set up just blocks from the stadium. The Bronx police reassured fans that the checkpoints were not aimed towards Yankees fans but were part of a citywide effort to crackdown on drunk driving. An effort that Angels ... Read More »

If a police officer says it then it has to be true…right?

Jason Servo, an Oregon police officer who was arrested and subsequently fired for driving under the influence, has filed a $6 million lawsuit against the city of Gresham claiming that his firing violated his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The lawsuit alleges that Officer Servo was suffering from alcoholism at the time of the incident and should not have been fired as alcoholism is a recognized disability under the act. In January 2011, after enjoying dinner and drinks ... Read More »
