While police officers have a lot of discretion when it comes to pulling people over and testing them for drunk driving, this discretion does not negate suspects’ rights. In fact, if police violate a person’s rights before, during or after a DUI arrest, any drunk driving charges coming from this arrest may be dismissed.

Examples of ways that police may violate a person’s rights at any point prior to or after a DUI arrest include by:

  • Failing to read a person his Miranda rights
  • Searching a person’s property or vehicle without probable cause, without a warrant and/or without a person’s specific consent to the search
  • Continuing to question a suspect when they’ve invoked their right to silence or have specifically asked for an attorney
  • Taking a blood sample from a person when that individual has refused BAC testing.
