The most over-rated person of all time has been charged with driving under the influence.

Not suprised, as this is a common occurance with celebs in the states.

That's BS. The limit should be .10

I don't believe I remember any celebs in recent history dodging a DUI charge. Probably a combo of California having tough laws and finding a sympathetic jury.

If I was the arresting officer this offer would have been on the table.

I thought most states had .08 as the legal limit. At least Massachusetts does as well....

As for Paris Hilton.....who cares? She's not worth the electrons I'm utilizing to post here.

Maybe she'll get some community service. All you need is a camera crew, and you've got another series of 'The Real Life' for free!

Please someone punish her by taking away that stupid rat-dog she owns.

Actually, she didn't. According to the article I read, she blew the minimum to allow an arrest, which I believe is .04 in California. They said she failed the Field Sobriety Test, which they combined with the minimal blow score to arrest her. I can actually see her fighting this one if her lawyer is smart.

Does that mean that you can blow under the legal limit (0.04-0.08) and still be arrested if you fail the field sobriety test?

Just curious...

Yes; for starters it could be a combination of drugs/alcohol.

Not only can it be a combo, but alcohol alone can be considered a reason. The law is written in such a way that the "legal limit" is merely the number at which there is no legal way out of the crime. .04 means that they can still consider you Driving Under the Influence if you appear to be impaired.

This is probably dependant on the state. In WI .08+ is OWI (operating while intoxicated.) .04-.07 is DUI (driving under the influence.) Most people don't understand the difference and use the term interchangebly.

Here, to be convicted of DUI, the officer must demonstrate that having a BAC of .04-.07 caused or contributed to poor driving. Usually, one is only charged with DUI if involved in an accident or is witnessed driving recklessly.

DUI is a charge that rarely sticks (but still sucks because you have to shell out for a lawyer.) An OWI charge is usually impossible to beat, but can be done with the right circumstances, a really good lawyer and the money to pay him.

All states have max .08 now. Minnesota was one of the last ones to lower it as of August 1, 2005.

Yes, you can be arrested and charged if you show signs of impairment. Being above 0.08 just automatically makes you guilty. If you are below 0.08, it will be a lot harder to prove impairment, and the officer must do a correct and well documented (video is preferred) field sobriety test. Often times, these will be pled down to either careless or reckless driving.

Thought I'd add my 2 cents as I learnt about this in my recent driver's ed course (speeding was my offence, not DUI).

The officer will normally do a field sobriety test and will document this very closely. If you blow under 0.8 then you can still be busted if he believes you are impaired.

Incidentally I saw a guy getting cuffed n stuffed at the weekend after tubing on the Salt River in Phoenix. He was so drunk he could hardly walk. Man, that guy is gonna have a whole library thrown at him, not just the book.

And the only way to beat the charge is to prove you weren't impaired. I have yet to hear about someone successfully doing that.

An awful lot of posts in a thread on a subject people apparently don't care about, eh? But I digress.

This is why people like Paris Hilton should stick to the back seat and have a driver. If she was working on a video, as the article states, one would have been offered to her.
