You’ve heard “don’t drink and drive”, but it is equally important to remember not to drink and fly! You have a lot to lose if you do.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) imposes tough restrictions on pilots and air traffic controllers. If you get a DUI, even if it is not work-related, you will still have to answer to the FAA within 60 days of your arrest. They have the discretion and the ability to take your job away from you, your license away from you, and also see that you are assessed and receive treatment for drug or alcohol abuse. With your freedom and livelihood potentially on the line, you need the help of a seasoned attorney who knows how to fight your charges intelligently and effectively.
Don’t Hand Evidence to the Po Po!
As with other types of DUI / OVI cases, the key to beating a DUI charge is to not give the government any evidence. That is why it is important to remember that if you are detained on suspicion of DUI/OVI, the first and only thing you should say is “Officer, I want to talk to Steve Adams!” Then, you should choose to refuse to take any tests: no field tests, no breath tests, no blood tests, and no urine tests. Most importantly, do not make any admissions of guilt, but also do not lie about it. Politely assert your right to remain silent until you have gotten the chance to speak with a Cincinnati DUI attorney at The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams, LLC. The less evidence you give the Po Po, the more difficult it will be for them to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and the better your chances of preserving your driver’s and pilot’s license.
