Pilots, air traffic controllers...don’t let the government clip your wings. Don’t drink and drive, and don’t drink and fly.
You have a lot to lose if you do. Now keep in mind, you know this, the Federal Aviation Administration keeps you all in check.
If you get a DUI, even when it’s not work-related, you’re gonna have to report to the FAA. You need to do so timely, within a 60-day reporting from the time you get arrested. They have the discretion and the ability to take your job away from you. They can take your license away from you and also see that you’re assessed and get alcohol treatment or drug treatment.
They’re going to be screening you and keeping their eye on you. So, remember, the key to DUIs and beating the DUI is not giving the government evidence.
So, don’t give them evidence. Say “Officer, before I say or do anything, I want to talk to Steve Adams.”
No field test, no breath test, no blood test, no chemical test, and no admissions. Don’t ever admit that you are drinking or have been drinking, but don’t lie about it. Say “Officer, before I say or do anything, I want to talk to Steve Adams.” Have you lied? No. Have you admitted? Absolutely not.
The less evidence that you give the po-po, the harder their case will be because they have to prove your guilt by proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Not just re-speculation, not just through the note or of alcohol.
If you don’t give them evidence, that’s a hard burden to prove on the government. So, don’t give the government evidence. Don’t help the government.
Say no-no to the po-po and choose to refuse. Let the DUI lawyers at The Law Offices of Steven R. Adams protect you and stay by your side to get you through this ordeal. We can protect your driver’s license and your pilot’s license. Stopped by the man, call the man.
