Can medication be used as a defense against a DUI? 1 Answers as of May 19, 2011
I was arrested for DUI and blew a .22. I was not involved in an accident, nor have I had any sort of traffic violation in the last five years. The day after my arrest I did some research and found that a medication I am on enhances the effects of alcohol and can cause alcohol to be absorbed slower (and therefore eliminated slower). I informed the arresting officers that I am on this medication but I was not aware of these side effects until I did the research. Could this be a possible defense in my case?
