Question by andy : arrest for DUI, but not booked; was this a “sloppy” arrest? I have a friend who i heard got arrested for a DUI. Hes 17 years old, and at the time of arrest, he was not read his rights. When he was taken to the station, he didnt get booked or fingerprinted. Also, he was breathalized; however, the arresting officer did not right down his BAC nor did he recieve a court date. His license was taken from him and returned to the DMV, sating that it was suspended for a year, but with all of these “errors” does that mean that his license can be retrieved? After reaching this news, i was a bit astaunished and had to ask: did the officer let him off easy? Best answer:

Yes the officer let him off easy. Hes 17, so underage for legal drinking, plus DUI, and he wasnt arrested? I think that is what you said. I didnt understand. But since he was 17, underage, and DUI he should have spent overnight and got a a court date and maybe lost his licence for life. I wouldnt take it to court. If they did make a police report, you would have to PROVE he wasnt read his rights. Also, if he was arrested before, they wouldnt have done his fingerprints. They would already be in the records.
