Riding a bicycle drunk can lead to a DUI

You and your friends have been planning a pub crawl through Greeley before the winter weather fully sets in. In order to stay safe and not risk a driving under the influence (DUI) charge or possibly even an accident, you have decided to make it a bike riding event. Unfortunately, in Colorado, you can get a DUI for riding a bike while intoxicated. And, in recent years, Denver and other cities have started taking a hard stand against cyclists riding their bikes while drunk.

What is wrongful arrest and can you resist it?

Law enforcement officers are only human, and they are as prone to mistakes and occasional poor judgment as the rest of us. Most of the time, those minor mistakes are easily fixed. Sometimes, however, they can result in the wrongful arrest of someone who committed no crime. Getting arrested when you shouldn't be is humiliating. It can impact your social relationships, your job and even your mental and physical health.

A DUI in my own driveway?

Driving after drinking is always a very serious risk, but in some cases, you may face DUI charges even if you're not actually driving. The law generally frowns upon individuals who exceed the legal limit being in a driver's seat at all.

When can law enforcement legally enter your private residence?

As most people are aware, the Fourth Amendment limits the ability of the state to search a person or private property and also protects against unfair or unnecessary seizure of property. Unfortunately, over the years, the Fourth Amendment and the protections it affords have been eroded both by common law enforcement practices and court precedent.

More assets mean more difficulty in divorce for many couples

Getting divorced can be a difficult, painful process. You are formally ending a relationship that you had hoped, at one time, would last the rest of your life. You and your former spouse are likely to disagree on many things about how to handle your divorce, including how to split up your possessions.

Could a medical condition have caused your DUI charge?

Many people seem to think that breath tests, also called breathalyzers, are infallible. This leads to an assumption by many that anyone who is facing a driving under the influence (DUI) charge must be guilty. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In reality, breathalyzers can and do produce false positives for a wide range of reasons. In some cases, a false positive is due to a malfunctioning unit or administration by someone who isn't following best practices. In many other cases, medical conditions can impact the results of a breathalyzer test, making it seem like there was alcohol when there wasn't.

Breathalyzers: Why they're not foolproof

You went out to dinner with some friends, and you had a few drinks. You didn't think much of it, since you only had a few and were there for several hours. You got behind the wheel of your vehicle and started heading home when a police officer comes up behind you and pulls you over.
