Arrested for DUI After Leaving a Bar

It’s a common story that we hear often. A guy or gal drives to a bar or a restaurant/bar to meet up with friends. They park outside of the main entrance, or in the bar’s parking lot and hang outside as they drink with their friends.

After leaving the bar, they climb into their car and head home, only to be pulled over a few short blocks away from the bar.

They are arrested for driving under the influence. The police officer tells them that he pulled them over because their car was parked outside of the bar and the officer saw them leaving.

If this happened to you, what can you do?

Take the Next Step

If you were arrested for DUI in Orange County after drinking at a bar, you should immediately contact the Law Office of Virginia L. Landry, Inc. to retain an experienced DUI attorney. Don’t forget that you have just 10 days from the date of the arrest to request a DMV hearing, which addresses the administrative license suspension.

It is possible that you have a viable motion to suppress the evidence based on an unlawful traffic stop.

But you need a good defense lawyer to fight your charges. You see, police officers must have probable cause to pull someone over and initiate a traffic stop. Simply walking out of a bar is NOT enough to support the legality of the stop.

If the judge agrees with our argument, and you’re leaving the bar was the reason why the officer stopped you, the case may be dismissed.

You should contact our office without delay. Like we said before, you may have a good basis for a suppression motion, so you don’t want to miss this opportunity and end up paying the price.

If you were arrested in Orange County, you need a local lawyer. Contact our office for a free case evaluation – our lead attorney is a Board Certified DUI defense expert.
