Possible drunk driving defenses

A motorist in Georgia who is facing a drunk driving charge has certain defense options at their disposal. A common approach to defending against such charges is to question the evidence or the actions of the arresting officer. There are also "affirmative" defenses, referring to instances where there was a valid reason for driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Georgia Supreme Court ruling affects breath tests in DUI cases

A recent ruling from the state's highest court was cited by the Hall County solicitor general when she reduced a man's original DUI charge to reckless driving. She said that the elimination of the breath test option when police officers pull over drivers suspected of intoxication limited the evidence available in the drunk driving case against a former Gainesville police officer.

Failing the nystagmus test could result in DUI arrest

Law enforcement officers in Georgia devote considerable time to monitoring traffic and arresting people suspected of driving while under the influence of alcohol. When police officers initiate traffic stops, they might ask drivers to submit to a field sobriety test that could include the nystagmus test. During this test, an officer will attempt to judge the bouncing and jerking of the subject's eyes while tracking a pen or pen light that the officer moves back and forth 12 to 15 inches in front of the driver's face.
