Unlawful Police Stops in Texas

Get Help from Our College Station DWI Defense Attorney

Everyone makes mistakes, including police officers. While their duty is to enforce the laws, they can often make arrests out of impulse or with complete disregard of the laws. When an officer commits an unlawful arrest, it can negate any efforts made by the prosecution, since the case has no legal basis.

At The Law Office of Shane Phelps, P.C., our College Station DWI defense attorneys can conduct an investigation into your arrest and gather evidence which determines that the arresting officer failed to follow proper protocol. With decades of experience, we have an extensive knowledge of Texas laws and court proceedings to help you obtain the most favorable outcome possible.

When Can an Officer Pull Me Over?

There are a variety of reasons a police officer may suspect you of drunk driving. These can often be subjective observations, which can be successfully challenged by an experienced and skilled defense attorney.

The following can provide law enforcement with probable cause to stop you:

  • Speeding
  • Swerving
  • Driving too slowly
  • Ignoring traffic stop signs and signals
  • Driving without headlights
  • Slowing down or stopping for no apparent reason

Do Not Hesitate to Have a Former Prosecutor On Your Side!

When police stop you at random or even on some suspicion you are drunk based off of a hunch or intuition, this is not credible grounds for a stop or arrest. As a former prosecutor, our senior attorney can give you the advantage of knowing how the prosecution will approach your case and how to develop a proper defense strategy. Let our College Station DWI lawyer help you get your life back to normal immediately.
