Greenville DWI Arrests

DWI Attorney in Greenville, NC

Understanding the workings of a DWI arrest is important for any Greenville driver to understand. It is helpful for any driver to gain a basic understanding of what to expect if pulled over for drunk driving. For a driver who has already been arrested, it is important to have an attorney review the situation to determine whether the arrest was unlawful and may therefore offer a foundation for a strong defense strategy.

An experienced Greenville DWI attorney at our law firm can help if you or someone you know was arrested for drunk driving or any related offense. We understand how these situations work and know what to look for in a violation of your legal rights. All you have to do is call our firm at 866-291-1822 for your confidential consultation.

The Drunk Driving Arrest Process

A drunk driving arrest in Greenville may proceed as follows (although this may vary depending on the unique case):

  • A law enforcement officer observes someone who is driving erratically or who has violated a traffic law.
  • The officer pulls the driver over to the side of the road and asks for his or her license and registration.
  • The officer will typically observe the driver at this point to see if he or she exhibits any outward signs of intoxication: slurred speech, statements about how much he/she has had to drink, bloodshot eyes, etc.
  • Depending on the officer's observations, he or she may ask the driver to step out of the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests.
  • Depending on the driver's performance on field sobriety tests, the officer may make an arrest for DWI.
  • Only after the driver is arrested for DWI will law enforcement have the authority to request a blood/breath test to determine his or her blood alcohol concentration (the driver may lawfully refuse before his or her arrest).
