In the recent case of Groves v. St., the Georgia Court of Appeals provides us with a very good explanation of exactly when a police “stop” in illegal.
Everyone usually gets nervous when they are stopped by the police, EVEN when they haven’t been drinking. However, because police today are FOCUSED on detecting drunk drivers, there are certain things you should avoid doing, if stopped by the police after having consumed alcohol:
I really appreciate all your time and effort. Your insight and experience with DUI law helped secure a favorable plea, and in turn helped me to make, what I feel was, the best decision given the circumstances surrounding my case. I can’t thank you enough for that.
I mean it in the best way possible when I say… I hope I never have a need to see you again…
If any questions come up I will be sure to ask.
