Can I get a DUI if my car was parked
Question: Can I get a DUI if my car was parked? I stopped at a friends house in North Hills, CA, was there for almost 2 hours. The nieghbors said that I hit their car when parking. the cops got there found I had not hit the car . and then gave me a DUI charge with a DUI court date in San Fernando. I had 3 beers with friends before they got there and 2 while they were there, then the officers wanted to give me a breath test or blood test .put me in cuffs and said they were going to do it one way or the other.
Answer: They can charge you with a DUI even though you were not driving when the cops arrived. But, this case can be defended as driving is an element of the offense. I am a very good DUI defense attorney and would be very interested in taking this case. The BAC results can be challenged here too. Call me at 818-336-1384 to discuss further.
