Lessons from Justin Bieber's DUI

 Posted on January 23, 2014 in DUI

Teen singing sensation Justin Bieber was arrested recently in Florida for DUI and drag racing. He is now out on bail. He was arrested after a police officer saw him heading down a street in Miami Beach, driving a yellow Lamborghini at excessive speeds.

According to officers, they were alerted because the star was driving at least twice the speed limit at the time. When he was pulled over, the officers noticed several signs of intoxication. He seemed drunk, and smelt of alcohol. According to officers, he had a look of stupor on his face, and when he was ordered to get out of the car, he made very slow and deliberate movements.

When the officer asked him to put his hand on his vehicle so that he could be patted down for weapons, Bieber refused to do so. He became uncooperative and argumentative. He failed a DUI sobriety test, and was then taken to the station for a breathalyzer test. Officers also found that he was driving with an invalid license.

Bieber had already made several mistakes by refusing to cooperate with the officers. He then made several more. He admitted to police officers that just before driving, he had consumed several alcoholic beverages, some marijuana and even some prescription medication.

When you have been pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, the best thing that you could do for yourself is to remain silent and cooperate. It can hurt your case when you become argumentative, and admit that you had been drinking several alcoholic beverages just before you began driving.

Even if the officer is very pleasant-mannered, or seems very kind or persuasive, it is important to understand that ultimately the office is only looking to arrest you, and is not interested in helping you get off lightly.
