Allison Ross, who was once an anchorwoman at KFMB-TV from 1978 to 1989 and with KNSD 7/39 for two years in San Diego, was arrested and is facing misdemeanor DUI charges. She was arrested by her home in La Jolla after police observed her driving on the wrong side of the road. San Diego 10 News also reported that police had Ross perform a field sobriety test after pulling her over. She was taken to Las Colinas women’s jail in Santee.
It is important to understand your rights when you have been pulled over by police for a suspected DUI charge. You will be required to furnish the police with your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and proof of registration. However, know that you are not legally required to participate in field sobriety tests as did Ross in the story above. You can legally refuse to do them. In order for a field sobriety test to be admissible in court, it must be done voluntarily. You should never participate in any of these tests without consulting an experienced San Diego DUI lawyer.
