No one is too tough to beat a DUI on their own. On April 29th, 2012 professional mixed martial arts fighter Ross Pearson was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol ( DUI ). He was pulled over early Sunday morning in Las Vegas for allegedly failing to maintain his lane. The "The Ultimate Fighter 9" winner was arrested for DUI after he was unable to perform to the officers satisfaction on field sobriety tests according to reports.
This is why it is important to know your rights. If you are stopped by a police officer in Woodstock or Cherokee County, you can decline take field sobriety tests. They are completely voluntary and are often used against you as there are many factors that can make you exhibit "clues" of impairment. Sometimes, you may just be nervous, sleepy or confused, but the Cherokee Co. officer misinterprets your behavior for intoxication. Don't give them that chance! Many people who are said to have perfomed poorly on field sobriety tests are not even legally drunk.
The Law Office of Richard S. Lawson has been helping driveres in Cherokee County who find themselves in similar situations to Ross for many years. He can explain to you the standardized field sobriety evaluations and how officers score them. He can also help you develop defense strategies to minimize the impact of a poor performance on such tests.
