My state is Louisiana.My 19 year old son was arrested for DWI. He does not do alcohol or drugs.He is a hard worker and worked all day.at 12 am they pulled him over for driving on line. They asked what have you been drinking ,he said nothing ,they asked what drugs did you take he said nothing.
they searched the car NO DRUGS NO ALCOHOL ! the officer insisted he was on drugs they did a sobriety test and he failed because he was tired .they arrested him,he took breath test 0000,he passed. they made him do a urine test but said it takes SEVERAL WEEKS to get back so they lock him up.HE KNOWS HE DOES NOT HAVE DRUGS IN HIS SYSTEM BUT THEY ARREST HIM ANYWAY. we had to bail him out 12 hours later .we got our own urine test at a hospital(paid $129) and all drugs came back NEGATIVE. so we take it up to the police station and show them to their face NEGATIVE no drugs in his system. as of today 3 days later he still has a DWI and they still have his license so I guess we have to go through the state to get his license back.
Is this legal that they can make people wait weeks for a urine test ? and how can they lock them up while they are waiting for this test. what if people do not have the money to bail out (we borrowed it),they have to not only wait weeks for urine test but for a court date also.
HOW CAN THEY TREAT PEOPLE THIS WAY! a young person is a hard worker stays away from alcohol and drugs and this is the way they treat them!
