Do I Need a Phoenix, AZ Criminal Defense Attorney? Detained for Further Investigation at a DUI Checkpoint!

Sobriety checkpoints can be used to stop drivers and deter drinking and driving. In Phoenix, AZ, a sobriety checkpoint is usually set up in a fixed location in which motor vehicles are stopped by a police officer. While stopped, the driver operating the motor vehicle can be questioned or asked to provide documents, such as license and registration. Generally speaking, divers can be stopped and observed for only a brief amount of time.

In order for a police officer to lawfully request to see a driver’s license and registration or detain an individual for further investigation, reasonable suspicion of DUI must exist. Therefore, it is always in your best interest to contact a DUI attorney at JacksonWhite before you answer any questions from a police officer. For more information about AZ DUI law, or to schedule a free criminal consultation with JacksonWhite’s DUI lawyer, Jeremy Geigle, callĀ 480-467-4370.
