Question: Can I get charged with DUI if police pulled me over for a traffic violation? The arrest took place in Encino, CA
Answer: Yes, and usually, the traffic violation is the reason that people get pulled over for DUI. Keep in mind that sometimes officers claim there is a traffic violation, but sometimes there was not. When that can be exposed, then it is a valid defense showing that the officers lacked probable cause to pull you over, and it is possible to get the case dismissed.
