DWI INVESTIGATIONS

When you are pulled over, the police officer’s questions may indicate whether you are being investigated for DWI. If an officer asks, “Have you been drinking?” or “How much have you had to drink tonight?” you know that the officer suspects that you are Driving While Intoxicated. What you may not know is the police officer’s DWI investigation began immediately upon pulling you over, and sometimes before initiating the stop.

 

Police officers are trained to look for certain evidence that indicates that a driver is intoxicated. The following is a list of some of the evidence that officers look for when investigating a DWI:

 

  • Red or Glassy Eyes

  • Alcohol Containers in the Vehicle

  • Odors of Alcohol or Marijuana

  • You Are Nervous and/or Avoiding Eye Contact

  • Slurred Speech

  • Inability to Answer Questions

  • You Admit That You Have Been Drinking

 

Your interaction with the police officer will likely be video recorded. An experienced DWI lawyer can review the video and determine how to fight the officer’s assessment of your performance during the investigation.
