Are Police Making DUI Arrest During the Coronavirus?

Posted by Ronald D. Hedding | Apr 30, 2020

Learn Whether the Los Angeles Police Are Arresting People For DUI's During the Coronavirus. This is a good question because you probably have to assume that the police don't want to deal with anybody during this Coronavirus. After all, they might fall prey to getting the Corona Virus.

Several LAPD officers have been infected with the Coronavirus.  However, I am getting several cases for DUIs, so they're still arresting people for DUI in Los Angeles county.

So, if you have one, pick the phone up.  Make the call.  A lot of times, I meet with people over the phone.  I've got over 400 reviews from attorneys and prior clients on the internet.  I've got about 300 videos.  I've handled thousands of DUI cases.  So, I can help you during these challenging times.

All of the same issues are there:  whether or not the police see you driving; or your blood alcohol level.  Sometimes the police are cutting corners, though in some of the recent DUI cases that I've got regarding the investigation and not checking everything out.

Are Los Angeles Police Making DUI Arrest During the Coronavirus?

Again, because they don't want to contact witnesses, the more people they talk to, the more people they have to interact with, and the more likely it is they might get the Coronavirus.

So, if you were swept up in LAPD or the sheriff's net — even CHP is probably who makes the most  DUI arrest in Los Angeles county — the California Highway Patrol.

If any of those individuals arrested you and you've got a DUI case pending in one of the Los Angeles courts, we can help you, and a lot of times, we can make it easy.

We'll deal with the DMV.  We'll deal with the courts.  If we have to have you come in, it will be minimal, so you don't have to expose yourself.

Courts Are Still Open During Coronavirus

Unfortunately, I'm in all of the 38 courts making appearances.  They're all still open during the Coronavirus.  I'm wearing a mask, and I can get in and out of there pretty quickly without having to languish in there, subjecting myself to getting the Corona Virus.

So, if you've got a DUI, even though there's the Coronavirus, and the police have given you a ticket, and you have to go to court, pick up the phone.  Make the call.

Let's talk about it.  We'll make the first court appearance for you, get the paperwork, send you over a copy, and then we can talk about it either face to face or via the telephone.

We also have to call the DMV within ten days of your arrest, so we'll make that call for you to set up the hearing.  Most of the hearings are being pushed back about a month, two months, or three months while they try and settle everything up here for the Coronavirus.

We also have the issue that once everybody ends up going to court on their DUI's during this Coronavirus arrest phase, it will be tough for the courts to handle all the cases.

This is because all of the cases have been pushed 30, 60, 90 days, so they're all going to strike at the same time, including the new DUI arrests in Los Angeles county.  It will be very tough, but it's nothing that we can't handle.

We will try to use it to our advantage to get you the best possible resolution.  The more cases they have, the more problems they have, the more likely the defense will be able to take advantage of that. We will talk to you soon and see you soon.  All the best.
