Volunteers help police cadets learn to spot signs of intoxication

Have you ever wondered how police officers are able to determine if someone is legally intoxicated? On the surface, it may seem a pretty straightforward process. But some people can imbibe quite a bit and still appear sober as a judge. So, in order to learn the signs of intoxication, Baton Rouge police cadets get some help from some lucky volunteers.

After an arrest, bail is at a judge's discretion

Being arrested in Louisiana can be a very daunting experience. Once you have been taken into custody, there is no way to know exactly what might happen next. If you are ever arrested and placed in jail on a criminal charge, you will likely want your freedom back as soon as possible. But before being released, you will typically have to appear in court to have your bail set.

Drug bust at barbershop results in seven arrests

Being charged with a drug crime in Louisiana is serious business. Even if your arrest is for simple possession of a controlled substance, you face the possibility of fines and even jail time. And these penalties can increase greatly if you are charged with intent to distribute. There are also specific circumstances related to the arrest that could result in even more charges.

How do per se laws affect DUI arrests?

It is a fact that some people can hold their liquor better than others. You might be able to down a number of drinks and maintain your equilibrium while your best friend is swinging from the chandelier after a single beer. So you may believe that your tolerance for alcohol will make it less likely that you will be charged with drunk driving if you are ever stopped by the police.
