drug tersted at dui arraignment

Question: I got arrested for pot DUI in Van Nuys, CA. Will I be drug tested before my arraignment or will I have random testing before hand?
Answer: Unless there is some drug testing as a condition of your OR release (which is very unlikely as I have never heard of a police , CHP or sheriffs dept doing so, then no. Van Nuys court likes to make continued OR release conditional on AA or NA meetings, but i have never heard of drug testing as a condition based on a DUI OR release. That being said, you should be sober when you are in court, and any other kind of drug charge or another DUI would compound your issues. Call me to discuss further.
