Earlier this month, NFL legend Joe Montana's son, Nate Montana, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI ). Nate Montana, age 21, is a college football player. Upon being pulled over for DUI and arrested, Mr. Montana refused to submit to a breath test. A driver's refusal of a breath test will lead to the Department of Driver Services (DDS ) administratively suspending the driver's license. This is a hard suspension with no temporary permit available. However, this suspension can be appealed if you act quickly. Calling a lawyer is a great first step to getting the best possible outcome for your case.
For many Georgians, a suspension of their driver's license is worse than being convicted of a DUI as their job / career is affected by not being able to drive. Sometimes there is some troubling gray area when an officer states in his or her report that the driver refused to take the breath test, but the driver was willing to take the breathalyzer. Call DUI lawyers at the office of Richard Lawson to discuss breath test refusal and license suspension issues today. Call within 10 days of your arrest to save your license and protect your rights. Much can be done to get you back on the road.
