Actor Michael Wright, well known for his role in the classic movie "Five Heartbeats," was arrested this week for Driving Under the Influence. Wright was trying to park his 1978 Rolls Royce when he struck a vehicle containing two police officers. Officers asked Wright to complete field sobriety tests, which he failed. He was subsequently determined to be above the legal limit for alcohol.
Driving Under the Influence (commonly referred to as DUI, DWI or OUI, depending on the jurisdiction) is a very serious charge. A conviction for driving under the influence can have profound effects on the accused's personal and professional lives. A person convicted of DUI can face up to six (6) months in jail, large fines, extensive counseling requirements, and even losing your driver's license for a period of time.

In many cases, the roadside exercises performed by law enforcement have little correlation to or predictive relationship to intoxication. In other cases, the exercises are performed improperly and in a manner that is wholly inconsistent with established law enforcement procedure. In yet other cases, the officers do not have sufficient cause to stop the vehicle in question, and an attorney may bring a Motion to Suppress the evidence including the roadside exercises and the blood or breath alcohol testing.
