Unlawful Police Stops in El Cajon

Each and every day in El Cajon, drivers are being pulled over by the police unlawfully. For a police stop to be considered a “legal” one, the police officer must first have a probable cause to think you are breaking the law and to pull you over to further investigate the situation. If an officer does not have any sort of legitimate reason to think you are breaking the law, it’s considered a violation of your rights and could possibly have your case dismissed.

If you or someone you know has recently been unlawfully pulled over by a police officer resulting in getting a DUI, an El Cajon DUI defense attorney from DUI Crew will fight to protect your constitutional rights. In order to have a success case, your attorney needs to prove that the stop was unwarranted and the officer violated your rights by pulling you over. The El Cajon DUI attorneys at DUI Crew will do everything possible to prove the police stop was unlawful.

When an Unlawful Police Stop Results in a DUI Arrest

For a police stop to be considered “lawful”, the police officer must observe irregular driving behavior that indicates that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs before they get pulled over. Once this is observed, the following behaviors 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 that your constitutional rights have been violated because a police officer pulled you over for no reason and it resulted in receiving a DUI, speak to one of the DUI defense lawyers at DUI Crew immediately to find out what we can do to help. Your El Cajon DUI lawyer will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case to prove that the officer had no reasonable cause to stop you for driving under the influence, which could result in the dismissal of your case.
