After having an alcoholic beverage or two at dinner, many people often wonder if they would be arrested if a police officer pulled them over on their drive home. Watch this video from Fort Lauderdale DUI Attorney, Robert Malove, to learn more about your rights if you are stopped by the police after having a drink or two.
When a Florida police officer stops your vehicle, he cannot order you out of your car unless he is placing you under arrest, which is why it is important to establish when you are being placed under arrest. The reason why this is significant is because field sobriety tests in Florida are voluntary. If a police officer asks you to get out of your car for a field sobriety test, you should ask the officer if you are under arrest. If you are not under arrest, then you do not have to perform the roadside sobriety test.If you have been charged with a DUI in Broward County, please call an experienced Fort Lauderdale DUI defense attorney at the Law Offices of Robert David Malove at 888-744-8225.
