2 drunk driving tickets
sterling michigan tore up his restricted license, handcuffed him and drove 74 miles an hour to police station putting my son;s life in danger driving so fast.
no Sterling Michigan yes he was driving outside of his restricted license the officer said he was doing 67 in a 55. but he said he wasnt going that he was pulling a 16 ft trailer to go pick up slab wood. and he had just stopped at a stop sign before that. just to let you know the cop knows him and doesnt like my son, we live in a small town. thanks for your help.
sorry not 2 drunk driving tickets one was impaired when he was 20 and the drunk driving when he was 21
ok thanks so much
My son says he did ask Sec Of State on getting restricted license they said that there was a waiting list. ( I don't know what that means)
He got drunk and impaired driving in 2007. From 2007 through 2010 he was driving back and fourth to work with no license . He had to work just bought a house.The company he works for wouldn't let him drive company truck. So that kept him back from getting promoted. In 2010 he had a hearing with a lawyer from Mt. Pleasant Mich and the DLAD and they said because he had failed once on the breathizer that they were going to give him a restricted licence. The restricted licence is still good till oct 8th 2013. I realize he is going to get fined but instead of going to jail for 90days or whatever can he request a breathizer in his truck again so he can go back and forth to work with a restricted license. this was his first offense.
I think what happened they suggested him to get a lawyer then to go ahead of DLAD but he didn;t have money for a lawyer at the time.
I believe one offense was in 2003 when he was 20 then one in 2004 or 2005. not sure.
It sounds like my son is a drunk. But I assure you, he has grown up alot and has got more responsible. He is a hard worker and needs some kinda of license to continue to work.
ok I hope im giving you the correct years. I think tomorrow I am going to the police station and see if my son can get a copy of his records or to the SOS. I really appreciate you helping him.
thank you so much for all the information. God bless you.
