So I got pulled over the other day because a cop smelled pot, and it was, admittedly, me as I had smoked a joint about a half hour earlier while getting home from out of town. I’m diabetic and forgot i hadn’t eaten breakfast that day- long conference the day before and I was pretty tired out. Well while i was sitting there being detained I started feeling really lightheaded and when I told the cop I needed to get something to eat out of my bag he said no and to stay where i was. Ended up getting out of the car later and stumbling and hitting my head on the concrete. Well I still have this ticket but I also kind of feel like I wasn’t treated right, is that worth anything in a court of law? I’m willing to hire a lawyer to fight the charge which i would like dropped anyway if at all possible. Just want to know if my injury has any weight against this kind of situation.
I will be happy to answer your question but I’m not sure what your question is. Also, what were you charged with? Are you asking if you have a civil case against the officer? Or, are you asking if your fact pattern will afford you a defense to the charge that you are speaking of? Please respond before I can proceed. You posted your question under the DUI category, is that what you were charged with?
