.23 BAC and given a court summons?


fark off, that should be mandatory jail time until you get hauled into court. It should be a felony and not a misdemeanor, and it should have his car impounded for X years. Doesnt matter what country its in, alcohol abusers get off far too easy

Actually, any DUI attorney with half a brain can get this thrown out. As far as the article said, the cops apparently showed up but didn't seem to observe him actually driving.

They've got nothing but disorderly conduct and trespassing.

By that logic the evidence be damned, you only get jailed for murder if someone sees it, otherwise you are free to go

Unfortunately, yes, that is the case.  On the other hand, if the suspect admits to doing the crime, all bets are off.
Once the cop observed that the suspect was clearly drunk off his ass, I picturethe conversation went something like this:
Cop: "How did you get here?"
Belligerent drunk: "I farkin' drove here - what's it to you?"
Cop: "You drove here?  In that car?"
Belligerent drunk: "Yeah, that farkin' car right there - what are you going to do about it?"
Cop: "Well, first I'm going to charge you with drunk driving."

I don't understand people like this. It's like wrong-number callers who insist that this is actually Johns' number or whoever and demand you put them on the phone and then call back 6 times to swear at you.

They don't have to witness you driving.  How about a DUI crash where the driver has gotten out of his car?

He was there, his car was there, no one else was with him that could have drove him there.

They also have to prove that he did not get drunk after driving, but that can be done with testimony as well.

lifeslammer: the evidence be damned


The testimony that they saw you driving *literally is* the evidence.

If they don't have *evidence* that you were driving and that you were drunk at the time, then, well, they don't have evidence to damn.

Murder investigations have a bigger budget, and murder tends to create more evidence to begin with.

You can easily get drunk to 0.09 at home, drive around the block without incident, then have zero evidence the next morning.  It doesn't work that way with murder.

Like any other crime, it all depends on the evidence and on the law. I don't think DUI charges after the fact will stick if they're contested and nothing happened while the suspect drove. It's hard to prove, and even an admission of guilt can be brought into doubt.
