Things get serious if an officer asks you to walk and turn

You may already know what it's like to experience a stressed feeling in the pit of your stomach when you glance in your rearview mirror and see police lights flashing. An officer pulling you over is no fun but doesn't necessarily have to ruin your entire day or week so long as no major issues arise during your traffic stop. In fact, sometimes, a police officer may simply give you some type of warning (i.e., slow down!) and then send you on your way.

Three little letters that can ruin your night

Summer is waning, and if you're like many other Tennessee residents, you may be trying to get some more fun in before school resumes, vacations end and seasons change. Perhaps you have plans to gather with some close friends to enjoy a night on the town and some badly needed rest and relaxation. That's all well and good, unless the type of beverage you order at dinner lands you behind bars later. The last thing you need is a police officer to charge you with DUI.

Does drinking plus driving always equal drunk driving?

Since it's mid-summer in Tennessee, many people are enjoying outdoor gatherings with friends and family, perhaps having barbecues or picnics by the lake, or just having a few people over for a late night swim in the backyard pool and a few cold drinks. That latter part can lead to problems if you're not careful. A sure fire way to interrupt summer fun is getting pulled over and charged with drunk driving. 

DUI conviction could have legal and personal impacts on your life

The repercussions of a DUI conviction can have far-reaching impacts. You may fear that you could potentially face jail time after a DUI charge, and your mind may begin to race when it comes to considering the other possibilities such a predicament could have on your life. Having a mark on your record could cause some issues for your life, but you do have the opportunity to mount a defense against the charges.

Steer toward a strong defense when drifting creates suspicion

If you've ever been pulled over in a traffic stop in Tennessee, you know there's no way to predict how such events will unfold. Sometimes, a police officer simply issues a type of warning to a driver then frees him or her to drive on to the intended destination. Other times, detainment lasts much longer and may even result in an arrest for suspicion of drunk driving or some other criminal offense. The law protects motorists, so police can not simply file random charges against them for no apparent reason.

What is the point of the one-leg stand field sobriety test?

In Tennessee, driving while impaired is a serious offense. If a law enforcement officer suspects that you are driving while under the influence of an impairing substance, the officer will likely pull you over and ask you to perform field sobriety testing. There are three standardized tests utilized nationwide, one of which is the one-leg stand test.

Knowing possible DUI punishments may help you build defense

If a recent DUI charge is something you are dealing with, you may find yourself under considerable apprehension and stress. The worry revolving around the potential outcomes of your legal case could have you feeling as if you have nowhere to turn for help. However, by gaining more information on the legal process ahead of you and the potential outcomes you could face if a conviction occurs, you may gain a greater ability to make informed decisions regarding your steps forward.
