Additional Information:

I admitted to having a few beers after work and was recently arrested for OUI in North Andover.   I think I will be able to hire a drunk driving defense attorney, but one of the things I was curious about is, can they ask someone with a disability to hold their leg off the ground 6 inches for 30 seconds?  I’m not actually sure if it is considered a disability, but I had hip replacement surgery and have some restricted mobility and wondered if that is a good defense?

Attorney Answer:

The Police can and usually will ask you to perform the field exercises regardless of physical issues and then indicate that they took the ailment into account even though they for the most part have no medical training background.  I would say that you have a a real good case to defend.  For a free consultation from a Board Certified Lawyer please give me a call at 617-851-7155.  Thank you.
