My question involves criminal law for the state of: Washington.
I was pulled over and arrested for DUI a couple of weeks ago. It was about 3 in the morning and I was driving home on the freeway. The freeway is 5 lanes wide. That point is important because I was driving in the far lane next adjacent to the carpool lane (4 lanes from the right side of the road). According to the officer, he was on the far side of the road helping an impaired vehicle and "saw me driving by at a high rate of speed" (with his radar eyes, I assume).
He paced me for a 1/2 mile and then pulled me over going 82mph in a 60mph zone.
The rest of the narrative is what I assume to be typical. I was co-operative, took the FST which consisted of the eye check and walk-and-turn, and a PB where I blew a .083.
The "weird/off" things I see are probable cause for stop since the officer was in the far lane when I drove by yet oddly felt that I was speeding? How long is a proper pace? I was thinking at least a mile? The narrative has me going Northbound, but I was going Southbound. How will that affect his filing? I told the officer that I had been smoking up until the time that I was pulled over, yet there was no 15 minute wait period before the PB. At the station, there was no mouth check, although he marked that he did do one before the test. There is a camera in that station, is that something that could help me if I obtained the video?
I'm not sure what questions to ask completely but I am attaching a copy of the narrative and probably cause statement.
Any advice you all have would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
