Can Silence or Refusal in a DUI Case Be Used Against You? (https://goo.gl/B73Ft3)

If you have been pulled over on suspicion of DUI, it's in your absolute best interest to avoid having a long, detailed discussion with the officer. Their main goal is to build a case against you for a DUI and anything you say might be used against you.

While you do have the right to remain silent, there are implied consent laws which require you to submit to chemical testing.

The officer will try to get you to talk about where you were going and what you were doing, among other things. While you can't talk yourself out of a DUI, you can talk your way into one, so don't talk to them.

Silence cannot be used against you in the court of law. You may refuse any roadside sobriety test, but if detained, you may be required to submit to a chemical breath, blood, or urine test.

Chico Woman Arrested for DUI After Three-Car Crash (https://goo.gl/25YDQ5)

A Chico woman has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after causing a three-car crash along Highway 99.

At around 10:30 p.m. the California Highway Patrol got a call about a car that had crashed into a tree and went down an embankment on the southbound East Avenue onramp. A person living nearby went to check on the driver of the Ford Mustang and flagged down another driver who had parked his Kia on the shoulder.

According to police, a few minutes later, the driver of a Toyota Tacoma rear-ended the Kia. The Tacoma continued down the embankment, eventually crashing into a Mustang that was below, before crashing into some trees.

The driver of the Mustang, a 24-year-old woman, suffered major injuries, including a broken hip, and is being treated at Enloe Medical Center. Kiri Moore, the 24-year-old driver of the Toyota Tacoma, was arrested on the scene and is now facing felony DUI charges.

Students Experience Powerful Message About DUI (https://goo.gl/rq6dTu)

A California Highway Patrol officer spoke to a group of local students about his loss due to a DUI crash.

Students at Sage Creek High School were subjected to a graphic and emotional mock DUI scene which depicted the aftermath of a drunk driving crash with fellow students injured or dead.

For CHP Officer Mark Latulippe, who leads the program Every 15 Minutes, the presentation took on a greater meaning this year, as it comes just a few months after he lost members of his family. His cousin Scott Latulippe and Scott's wife and son were killed by a suspected drunk driver in Austin, Texas. Scott was a well-known high school teacher.

The overarching message is that losses due to drunken driving incidents happen all too frequently. The program closed with a mock funeral and presentation from Officer Latulippe.

Mom Charged in DUI Peed on an Officer and Kicked Another in Groin, Police Say (https://goo.gl/ePL9oB)

A Florida woman was taken into custody after rear-ending a vehicle, and kicking and peeing on an officer. She did this while her child was in the back seat of her car.

According to police reports, Nichole Nespolini, 40, was driving erratically, screaming and cursing at another vehicle before rear-ending the car. Nespolini pulled over along with the driver of the other car and continued screaming at her while pleading for her not to call law enforcement.

When police arrived at the scene, Nespolini continued to act erratically, walking into traffic and pushing an officer in the chest. After she was placed in handcuffs, she told the officer "I'm peeing and I hope it gets on you!" She urinated on the officer's foot. While being escorted into the patrol vehicle, she kicked another officer in the groin.

The child's father came to retrieve the baby, who was in a car seat in the back seat. She was taken to a hospital for medical clearance before being taken to jail.

Nespolini has been charged with driving under the influence, DUI with property damage, child neglect, resisting an officer and battery on an officer with a bond set at $18,500.

Grass Valley Man Charged with DUI, Murder After Toddler Killed in Rollover (https://goo.gl/jMFyXe)

A rollover accident that killed a toddler resulted in the arrest of a man who is now facing charges of murder and drunk driving.

Albert J. Silva, who was driving a 2007 Ford Focus on Route 20 in Grass Valley, was carrying a two-year-old boy as a passenger in the backseat. The boy was not properly restrained in a child safety seat.

After driving into a grave shoulder, Silva overcorrected and lost control. The car rolled several times and the child was ejected from the vehicle, according to the report from California Highway Patrol.

Silva was transported to a medical center for treatment of the severe injuries he sustained during the accident. The child was pronounced dead shortly after the collision, and it has not yet been established if the child was Silva's son.

The CHP asserts that alcohol was a factor in the collision and Silva is now under arrest in custody during his medical treatment. He faces charges of murder, DUI causing death, child abuse, and probation violation.

Ex-NBA Star Dennis Rodman Pleads Guilty and Is Sentenced to Probation in Newport Beach DUI Case (https://goo.gl/4FqKGX)

Former basketball player Dennis Rodman, 56, pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to three years' informal probation due to allegations of drunk driving in Newport Beach.

According to police, Rodman was pulled over for a traffic violation and subsequently failed a breath test and was arrested. His blood alcohol level was 0.21%, nearly triple the legal limit.

Rodman's attorney stated that after the arrest, Rodman immediately entered a residential treatment program and committed to long-term outpatient treatment. He also completed community service by donating much of his time to long-term facilities and "making a difference in the lives of others."

Last year, he'd been sentenced to three years' informal probation after pleading guilty to three misdemeanor charges related to a wrong-way crash on the 5 Freeway in Santa Ana.

If you think you've heard your fair share of facepalm DUI stories, think again.

The latest comes story comes to us from Port St. Lucie, Florida, where police arrested and charged a woman with driving under the influence after she was seen driving around with four flat tires.

The report alleges that the arresting officer saw the woman driving a 2012 Honda going at 5-10 mph in a 40 mph zone and had a long line of cars behind her. He pulled over the driver and noticed a child in a car seat in the backseat.

According to the police report, the officer asked 39-year-old So Young Pak if she knew what happened to her car. After the officer told her that she had four flat tires, she denied that anything was wrong and said her car was fine.
