I just got a DUI and there is no question that by the breathalyzer readings I was over the limit. This being said , I have no memory of the incident, but woke up at a friends place with documentation that I had apparently signed. My question is Is it legal for the arresting officer to have me sign papers while inebbriated? According to the time I was pulled over and released from police custody it was a total of aproximately 2 hours. Should I have been held until I was actually aware and capable of understanding what I was signing? Would this point justify hiring a lawyer in my area?
