Every night, Georgia State Patrol and law enforcement officers pull over motorists. They are supposed to have a basis for these stops - meaning, they need to have observed some type of violation of the law - like a rolling stop, running a red light, or failure to maintain lane. However, it seems these officers look for any small reason to pull over a car or truck. When an officer stops you, he will probably ask you if you have been drinking. If you indicate that you had even a beer or two, they will likely ask you to exit the car and take field sobriety tests.
You may look and feel fine, but the officer may notice a sway or stagger and use this in the case against you for DUI. Many Georgia State Patrol law enforcement vehicles are now wired with video and audio and this is helpful for many DUI defendants in showing that they actually performed fine on the field sobriety tests and were still arrested for driving under the influence.
