What is the officer looking for during the initial detention at the drunk driving scene?
Law enforcement is looking for evidence which ultimately will be utilized against you in the prosecution for the drunk driving case. Law enforcement are looking at your eyes to determine whether they are bloodshot, watery, or dilated. They’re looking at your appearance to determine whether you have slowed heavy speech, a heavy tongue, whether you’re stumbling, slumped over or even sleeping in the vehicle. All of this evidence will be utilized against you and forwarded onto the state attorney’s office.
