Off Duty Deputy Arrested After Routine Traffic Stop in Georgia

Posted by Richard Lawson | Feb 10, 2020 | 0 Comments

A deputy in Madison County was arrested this past weekend.

According to reports, the officer was off duty and was pulled over for a minor traffic violation. This led to a further investigation and a search of his vehicle. Officers discovered methamphetamine within the car which led to his immediate arrest.

As a Georgia DUI Lawyer, I cover a litany of offenses that lead to routine traffic stops which in turn lead to in depth investigations such as in the story above or in cases of DUI in Georgia.

DUI Related Offenses in Georgia

If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI in Georgia, you probably were given other traffic offenses or other related charges.  For example, generally before being charged with a DUI, a driver has been pulled over for some other offense such as:

These are just a few examples of routine traffic stops. Unless stopped at a Georgia DUI Checkpoint, then a driver accused of DUI is also facing other traffic violations.

Our firm exclusively practices Georgia DUI Defense. That includes all he minor traffic offenses related to DUI and anything found in the car after your arrest. There has to be some related offense that is the basis for why you are stopped. Legally - this is called articulable suspicion to stop you.
