Unlawful Police Stops in San Diego

Every day in San Diego, drivers are unlawfully pulled over by the police. In order for a police stop to be considered “legal”, the police officer must first have a probable cause to believe that you are breaking the law and to pull you over to further investigate. If an officer does not have a legitimate reason to believe you are breaking the law, it’s considered to be a violation of your rights and it is possible to have your case dismissed.

If you or someone you know has been pulled over by a police officer unlawfully and it resulted in being charged with a DUI, a San Diego DUI defense attorney from DUI Crew will fight to protect your constitutional rights. In order for your case to be successful, your attorney will need to prove that the stop was unwarranted and the officer violated your rights by pulling you over. The attorneys at DUI Crew will do everything and anything possible to prove the police stop was unlawful.

When an Unlawful Police Stop Results in a DUI Arrest

In order for a police stop to be considered “lawful”, the police officer must observe irregular driving behavior that could indicate that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs before they are pulled over. When this is observed, the following behaviors can give the officer a reasonable cause to pull you over:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Swerving
  • Driving too slow
  • Disobeying traffic laws, signs, signals or lights
  • Weaving between lanes
  • Not having headlights on after dark
  • If you think your constitutional rights were violated because a police officer pulled you over unreasonably and it resulted in a DUI, you need to speak to one of the lawyers at DUI Crew right away to find out what we can do to help. Your San Diego DUI lawyer will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case to prove that the officer did not have a reasonable cause to stop you for driving under the influence, which could result in the dismissal of your case.
