DUI ARREST

A case begins with the commission of a crime. There are three ways a case may be brought into court.

1. Arrest of the accused at the scene of the crime;
2. Arrest based on a warrant issued by the Court in response to a sworn complaint; and
3. Arrest based on an indictment by a grand jury as the result of an investigation.
In all instances, the evidence must be sufficient to convince a Court that there is "probable cause" to believe that a crime was committed and that the person arrested took part in committing the crime. "Probable Cause" means that there is reasonable belief that a crime has been committed.
